I just recieved a new Iphone 4s and I tried to restore it through Iclouds which didnt work and when I tried to do it through Itunes they prompted me to use a password but I cant remember it is there a way to receive this password
The password for an encrypted backup is local and cannot be recovered. If you cannot remember the password, the only thing that you can do is restore the phone as a new device, not using the backup. I'm not sure why the iCloud restore would not work, but here is a support document regarding restores from iCloud http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4859
