IPhone 4S Password Lockout
AJSAMUELSON

After installing the IOS 7.1.2 update, my son changed the 4-digit device password to his iPhone 4S, forgot it, and kept getting longer and longer lockout times.  It's now up to an hour.  How can we reset it without doing a hard reset to the device and losing info currently on it?

Regards,

AJ

I know it's important to get him access to his phone again AJSAMUELSON, i'm sorry to hear this happened but I'm happy to help. Once the password is forgotten, there is only one way to get back in and that's to restore as a new phone. Here are the steps to do so http://bit.ly/19vT5qz.
