You will need to do a reset. Hold the middle button(home key) while you plug it into the compter. Keep holding it until iTunes displays it found a phone in "recovery mode". You should then be able to do a restore.

How do I unlock my screenlock on my iPhone 5c if I forgot my passcode


If you enter the wrong passcode six times in a row, you'll be locked out and you'll see this message:

iPhone is disabled

iPad is disabled

iPod touch is disabled

Follow these steps if you never synced your device with iTunes, if you don't have Find My iPhone set up, or if you can't get to your own computer. You'll need to put your device in recovery mode, which will erase the device and its passcode. Then you'll restore your device as new or from a backup.

Disconnect all cables from your device.

Turn off your device.

Press and hold the Home button. While holding the Home button, connect your device to iTunes. If your device doesn't turn on automatically, turn it on.

Continue holding the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.

iTunes will alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode.

Click OK, then restore the device.

I forgot my iphone passcode and its says disabled connected to itune how do i do it???


You're gonna have to plug it into the computer that you've been syncing it with previously to unlock it, or you can put it into restore mode by plugging it into a different computer with iTunes, and pressing the power and home buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds and holding the home button till iTunes dings at you and says that it's detected an iphone in recovery mode. !! Important note!!! If you're using ios 7.0 or above then you will still have to enter the previous Apple ID associated with the phone to remove the iCloud lock to be able to restore.

Iphone 5 has been disabled and forgotten passcode


iPhone Is Disabled After a series of more failed attempts, your iPhone displays the same "iPhone is Disabled" message, but with an added "Connect to iTunes" message. At this point, your iPhone shuts down completely and you cannot make any more attempts to enter the passcode. In order to restore the device at this stage, you need to connect it to a computer with iTunes installed. Ideally, connect it to a computer that you've used before for syncing your iPhone.
