    Then you will have to restore the phone as new. Do not restore the backup because it will just lock the phone with the password you forgot. There is no way to reset the password.

    When you restore your phone from a backup, the pass code and restrictions is erased and you have to create a new pass code and restrictions code.

    Backup your iPhone by plugging it in to your computer and open iTunes and then control click (right click) on the iPhone in the sidebar or from the iPhone tab in iTunes. Backup your iPhone before doing a restore from backup.

    Also, if you forgot your encrypted password for your iPhone, if you encrypted it. The data on your phone will be tied to that encryption password, if you forget your encryption password for your iPhone, your data will be gone and you will have to restore as a new iPhone.
