My father's been taken ill and has forgotten the passcode to his iPhone 4 but needs all the contacts for work. We've tried to unlock it so many times that it's completely locked us out. Is there any way to unlock the phone but keep all the contacts? When I plug it into itunes it asks if I'd like to update the phone but I'm not sure if that will work properly?
If it's saying it's disabled, there is no way to get anything off of the phone. He should have been syncing his contacts to an address book on his computer or a cloud service. They should still be there.
