    no, I don't have the data backed up... :-(((

    but: I did manage to recover the photos... with ImageCapture.. I just imported them to my computer... even though access to the phone is supposedly blocked, weird....

    thank you.. oh man. I don't believe this.. all my contacts, W-A conversations, texts, all will be gone once I'm done here? sorry, this is absolutely lousy programming design.. there should be a way to reset/recover the passcode w/o losing all your data.. this is ridiculous.....

    thank you for your response...

    PS: now it says: "try again in 60 minutes...." I don't believe this....
    I think after the 60 minutes and you still get it incorrect your data will be done for,
    it will say
    'iPhone is disabled
    Connect to iTunes'
    I don't know because I never had an iDevice disabled like that. I have had one disabled though for 60 minutes. I NEARLY HAD ONE DISABLED UNTIL I HAD TO RESET.

    So you would prefer a system where anyone could reset your password and access all of your data? This is not lousy programming this is personal security driven by consumers not developers. There are multiple ways of backing up your data and we are constantly encouraged to use them. Don't get me wrong, I sympathise with your situation but with any smart phone today, androids are the same, you must backup your data somewhere, either locally or online.

    I think if you check, the OP got their problem sorted out about six months ago according to the forum subject post dates.

    But Rod's suggestion to have a proper backup sure doesn't hurt and should be flogged until it finally sinks in to all users.

    And no, it's not just a ploy by the storage manufacturers to sell more products.
