Hope someone can help. I just bought 3 iphones for my wife and two kids for Christmas. Broke down for various reasons and gave the phones to them last week. My son was with two friends playing around with his phone and he changed the password/code (four digit code that locks the phone) so his friends couldn't use it. This morning he forgot what the code was he put in and now the phone is locked. Here is the tough part - we live in Tulsa, OK where the ice storm has hit and we have no power in our house. We went to the Apple store and the ATT store where we purchased the phones and they said that the only way to 'unlock' the phone is to do a restore on the computer that I initally registered the phone on with iTunes. Of course, that computer is my G5 that has no electricity to it right now. It could be a week or more before we get any electricity.

Any other possible ideas on how to unlock the phone. My son has tried around 4-5 times to enter the four digit number (which he forgot) and has had no success and now the phone won't let him enter any more numbers and says to link with iTunes.

It serves him right to have to wait until we get our electric back but his is really bummed. Any way to do it without my computer? If not, when we get electricity back, will a restore work and unlock his phone?

Thanks in advance for any info or suggestions. Freezing at home, typing this from the office.......
