Re: iPhone 5c is disabled, locked out.  How do I get it unlocked?

Google is a life saver.  Granted I had to read and read.  If you get the error "iPhone Disabled" because the pass code was typed incorrectly a few times, it will lock up your iPhone 5c.

Step 1- Hold Sleep/Wake and then Power Off

Step 2- While holding "home" button plug iPhone up to computer using the charger and you should hopefully get a white cord charing to a red looking circle

Step 3- It should be connecting to iTunes and then you have to restore setting

Step 4- Restore setting takes a few then it's back to factory setting meaning you lose everything that was saved on there before if you've never used iCloud/iTunes and didn't save all information

I hope it helps if not just Google because there's those websites that you pay to unlock but if you don't have much information to lose then reset back to factory setting.
