    Tried iTunes 10.6.3, tallPablo, same thing. Cannot restore from the backup unless you also want to install iOS 6.

     

    I suspect this will be the case with any version of iTunes. If the device can run iOS 6, restoring will force an upgrade.

     

    Thanks anyway!

    This is not part of the topic at hand, but once you connect it to iTunes, right click on the device in the device pane and select backup.

    This is ridiculus. People here are so agressive and blaming. Stop doing that! Be nice to eachother!

     

    I'm having the same issue a poster on the last page described. All of a sudden a passcode is requested although I've never set one up. It's been no more than a week since I last accessed the restrictions, and I've not set any passcode up since then. No matter what I write in it says is wrong, and then it makes me wait... I would much prefer not to have to reset my iPad, as I've just reset it and finally managed to sort my 300+ apps...

    I agree. I have no idea how a restrictions password got set on my iPhone anyway as I am the only person who uses the iPhone and I live alone! I dunno? Ghosts? I also am not going to reset my phone and re-download 300+ apps and then organize them again, I already had to do that when I upgraded from a iPhone 3GS to my current iPhone 4S. Surely to God there is some way (other than resetting!!) for people who have this problem to get it unlocked. I don't even know what is being restricted with the password, and it just bugs me that my own personal phone, that no one else uses, has a restrictions lock on it! Total bull. There should be some kind of fail-safe in place for situations like this, not just an "oh well for you, just wipe your iPhone/iPad/iWhatever device and start over!" answer.

    It can't set itself. It can only be set by someone with physical access to the phone. If there were a way around it, it would serve no purpose.  If you insist no one else could have done it, then the only conclusion that can be drawn is that you did it and forgot it.

    Two things annoy me.

    1. My Apple device does things on it's own.

    2. The Apple fanboys in the support forums claims that I don't know where my device has been, or that I'm doing stuff I can't remember. I'm not demented, you know..

     

    I'm seriously considering getting a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 LTE to replace this half eaten apple...

  • 1nk1 Level 1 Level 1

    Oh, right of course that's what happened, because you're always right according to the messages from you just in this thread alone.

    Drop the condescension and your smarmy know-it-all attitude. If you don't have something helpful or useful to add to the conversation then keep your mouth shut.You have no idea how the passcode got set on mine or anyone elses devices any more than I do. I have never used passcodes, so why would I suddenly decide to use one? Just so I could forget it? Go bother someone else. The rest of us are trying to get some useful information for our dilemma.

    Agreed!

    You're one of those people who are completely incapable of admitting that you just might be wrong. Get over it. Computers, including smartphones, do not just do things by themselves. YOU are at fault here, not the phone.

  • Level 2 Level 2

    KiltedTim - I assume the iphone 5 never had any bugs right? or no apple products has any bugs for that matter?


    The thing to understand is - if someone is telling you that they didn't set the code by themselves, and the phone got locked on its own - it is possible (probability > 0, however small), that there is some bug in the workflow somewhere which resulted in this uncommon situation.


    to outright dismiss someone as naive/idiot/liar just shows how little you understand about technology/forums/advice.


    ps. I guess you'd never admit that, say for example, the iphone 5 had a data bug with verizon - that is used cellular data all by itself, without the user doing it. after all, a computer can never do things on its own right?

     

    kiltedtim - can't wait for you to 'report' this reply.

  • KiltedTim Level 9 Level 9

    Yes, there is a non-zero probability that it was caused by a bug. There is also a non-zero probability that if you hear hoofbeats on the road behind you when walking down a country lane, that you will see a zebra when you turn your head to look.

     

    This is a simple case of user error. Nothing more. There are no zebras in this case. It's just a horse.

     

    The "bug in the workflow" was a user forgetting that they had set a passcode, or someone else setting the passcode and not telling them.

     

    No need to 'report' your reply. I figure you have plenty of your posts deleted by the mods for spouting nonsense or violating the TOS without me adding to their workload.

  • Level 2 Level 2

    yup - the iphone 5 data bug was also just a horse.

     

    notice there are many other posts where I have proved you wrong, (like the 3rd party iphone repair) but you never bother to reply there, since you'd be oh..so embarassed.

  • Tjita1 Level 1 Level 1

    Oh for heavens sake. I haven't set a passcode on restrictions, if I had I would know what it was. Noone else has either, as I have a passcode on my phone. Stop thinking you beloved products is so perfect. There is something called bugs. If you google a bit you will notice that there is quiet a few people who has had this issue... You're either calling me a liar or demented. 1. I never lie. 2. I'm actually really clever - I've had myself tested to confirm that.

     

    I take this as a personal offense...

  • KiltedTim Level 9 Level 9

    No, I've just learned that' it's pointless  to argue with idiots.
