how to restore iphone without icloud password
I had to take my phone in because the camera was broken. I backed up the data on itunes and took the phone into the Apple store. They gave me a new phone and said to just restore it from my latest backup. When I select the restore point to use, itunes asks me for a password. I didnt set a password when I backed up the old phone and iTunes doesnt accept my iTunes account password. How can I get my new phone restored with the backup I did just prior to giving my phone to Apple?
Just interested because since Apple released io 5, my iphone crashes constantly and is actually unuseable and it coincided with the release of iphone 4 and I refuse to be bullied into buying a new piece of technology ...one solution I have read about is to back up iphone and then restore.
Can anyone reccomend which is going to restore my iphone content please?

Hello apple team
I forgot my icloud id and password. and i have gifted my I phone to my brother. I tried all my Id but in vain kindly help in the activation of my I phone
When I first got my new iPhone and turned it on, a list from all the recent iCloud backups appeared so I chose the most recent backup.
Today I plugged my phone into my dads computer and it automatically synced. Now, all the content on my phone has been replaced with my dads iTunes content including contacts, messages, and calendar. When I plugged it back into my own computer all my apps loaded onto my phone but none of my contacts, messages or calendar did. How do I restore everything with one of the iCloud backups?
if i restore my iphone with my icloud backup will my music still be saved on my music app ?
Some transferred to my mums iPod through iCloud when I foolishly signed in with mine, and I deleted them, having NO idea they completely moved over from my phone... Is there any way to get them back? Please help, a couple of them are a parts to my really long story! :(
I let someone use my old iPhone, and when I got the phone back there was a password on it. So I plugged it into my laptop thinking that I would be able to restore the phone through my computer. And it says that I need to turn off Find my iPhone through iCloud. How do I do that without the password, or how can I get the password off so I can shut it off.
My girlfriend is willing to sell me her iphone 4 for a very good price. only thing is i am just about to break up with the poor thing and i dont want her to be able to track me through iCloud. Is there any way i can make sure see can not track me (E.g through her iCloud account) after she has given it to me?
thanks a lot in advance.
my iphone says connect to itunes and i have but when i connect it to itunes it wont restore because it says its locked with a password and i dont know the password. what do i do
Heres the story. I dropped my phone in a swimming pool. It did not start at first. I layed the phone in a bag of uncooked rice and after 5 days it seemed like it was going to startup again. However something was wrong with teh battery so we ordered a new battery. The phone started up with the new battery but it wanted to go into that recovery mode. I did go through the backup procedure in iTunes and then recovery. The phone is now starting up fine but it is blank from apps and photos like a new phone. I did not have any photos backed up over iCloud before this happened. However shouldnt the photos still be on teh memory card of the phone? I thought the recovery process just resets the phone to factory standard, not deleting my photos. How can I get my old photos out of the phone? They are not in the DCIM when I log on through Windows explorer as well.
I wiped my iphone 4 clean and did a install from last iCloud backup. The night before last around midnight. Its halfway restored on a 13gb backup. 30+ hours later. Its been on wifi the entire time except one hour last night when I ran to then store. Im keeping it plugged in to the power outlet too. Ive seen it take a while to restore before for approx 1 FB less. Its never been this long. WTHeck is going on? Can I push this process along at all? I tried to delete some apps that are waiting to be redownloaded...and 1 minute later
They were back on the screen... So thats not helpful. LOL
Please let me know what I can do about this... Its been downloaded my snapfish app for many many hours (they all took a long time..) this one is taking soooo long
I left the apple store fast due to the fact i was in a bad car accudent and i am in a wheelchair and cant stay seated like that long due to a broken leg. It randomly will pop up message saying something like it needs wifi but I have wifi at my house. It also pops up another message something like it needs to finish restoring it and asks if I want to download it all and I click on it it to but it goes away after that and nothing pops back up. I also cant install the new update it says I have I finish the retire then do it. My photo album is also stuck at whatever number of photos I have taken in the new phone that number of 300 something. It just says its downloading it. I have no clue what to do. Also my iCloud backup I looked and it says I have 2.2 gb left then that the backup is 2.7 gb. Im very confused what options I have and cant find an answer anywhere please help me!
Hi,I set restrictions on my iphone to disable in-app purchases so that my children dont rack up a bill on my account. Unfortunately Ive forgotten the password and now I need an in-app purchase for CoPilot navigation app.Can I reset my iPhone and then restore from a backup to clear the restrictions password? If so, is there a step by step guide to do this? Much appreciate any help.Boz
I had to restore an iPhone 3GS, but the backup has a password that i did not put. What should i do?
I forgot my restrictions password on my iPhone about three months ago and have just not bothered restoring the iPhone since then. Now, I am getting a data issue with the phone that does not allow me to use 3G or anything that requires cellular data (iMessage, email, Safari, etc). This problem is not related to the lost restriction passcode. Online people have recommended to restore the iPhone to factory settings.
How can I restore my iPhone without restoring the restriction passcode? From what I understand, I cannot restore from a back up without restoring the passcode. Is this true? If I cant use a backup, how can I avoid losing my contacts (most imporant), pictures, music, etc? Do I need to manually back up each one of these?
If anyone could advise me to the best method that I can restore my iPhone without a) restoring the restrictions passcode and b) losing my contacts, pictures, music, etc., it would be grealy appreciated!
I would like you to help me restore my password. I cant use it because my phne is blocked. I would appreciate your help. Thank you.!!!
When I tune on icloud My iphone4 pictrue all gone,how can I retrieve my pictrue from my icloud?
Update went flawlessly but after the update Itunes wants to restore my aps, a good thing. But it wants a password that does not exist. I tried my iTunes password but it did not recognize it. So now I have a expensive paperweight.
I have never been asked for a password before, so why now?
I had to turn off iTunes and restart it to get it to restore my iphone. Until I got an error -402620393.
MacBook Mac OS X (10.6.3) 2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB DDR2, 250GB HDD
Trying to restore to backup by right clicking on the iPhone app in iTunes in an attempt to recover some application data I erased by accident earlier.
Also will iTunes restore the phone to how it was when the last back up occurred then?
Hope someone can help me regarding below.
After my sister punched in the wrong password on my Iphone 4 (locked because of company mail) more than three times this weekend, the phone locked and needed to be linked to Itunes.
I wasnt at home so I downloaded Itunes on my parents computer and connected my Iphone. But I guess I shouldnt have done that, because when it was relaunched it had deleted all software and was back to the factory settings.
I havent linked my phone regularly to Itunes (lack of knowledge Im afraid), so I have no backup on my own computer.
Do anyone know how to get the old settings and software back and if it is possible at all?
Hope to hear from you soon.

I dont use photo stream, but i backup my iphone with icloud everyday. If i delete a picture from my camera roll, will it still be in my icloud backup?

I recently put iCloud on my iPhone and I hated it. It also disrupted my outgoing mail. I removed iCloud but I still cannot send mail. I get a message saying that the device cannot connect with my server. However, when I look at my settings the server info seems fine. Any ideas?
I do not know my iphone backup password to restore my newly updated phone to have all of my old contacts, notes, text messages, etc. what do I do?
My iCloud account on my iPad is different from the iCloud account from my iPhone. From what Ive read the only way to really change this is to delete one of the iCloud accounts. I want the phone the same as the iPad account even though all my pics and music are on my phone. I so Do Not want to lose any of them!!! If I delete my iCloud account does all of my data, images, songs, etc, stay on my phone?
Data attached to iCloud or to device or to iTunes (which btw Im having trouble with and Id like to not use if I dont have to)
First thing I noticed was that after every attempt to send a text, immediatly after tapping send I was flashed back to my home screen - no text saved or sent. So I tried reset. I tried from icloud , but wouldnt work, just kept prompting me for apple id which I did w password but didnt reccognise it and so I went back and restored from itunes , plugged in and just keeps walking me thrigh the same set up steps. I am really technologically challenged, clearly, and this gets more confusing because I also got a time machine and have been in the process of backing up my macbook pro and devices. I have the ethernet cord plugged into my macbook and everything because I am affraid its not fully finished setting that whole time machine thing up. Maybe when I had to set up my time capsule wifi name? is this the reason my apple id isnt getting recognized? Im so frustrated and must have a working cell phone. Plwasw will someone help this girl out
I just got my new Iphone 5s activated at verizon. I came home to plug into my computer to get all my apps, etc that I had backed up from old phone.

Any help would be appreicated....I dont want to loose all my back up.
