I have an iPad 3 with iOS7 (not sure if 7.02 or not)
When I first got the notification that iOS7 was available I installed it. I was sick in bed at the time and I barely remember doing the install. I remember it talking about a passcode and I thought I remembered using a four digit number that is very familiar to me. It was several days later that I was well enough for me to pick up my iPad and low in behold when I put in my passcode (the one that I thought I had used) the iOS said it was the wrong one. Not realizing that after 6 attempts or whatever, my iPad is now disabled completely. It is a long story of several surgeries since I first got the ipad and I have never backed it up, synced it or even could have hooked it up to a computer. I am to the point of wanting to restore to erase the device completely. I tried the Remote Wipe and "Find My Phone" said "All devices are offline".I tried going thru hooking iPad up to my laptop and doing a restore wipe it clean and that did not work for me either. I am at my wits-end at this point and would deeply appreciate any help I can get as I need my iPad while I am still in bed most of the time.
I went thru all the things again in great detail and I am not sure which idea made things work but finally I got my iPad restored to the factory default and I am back on my way using my iPad. Since I am still in bed most of the time I really appreciate all the wonderful support I was given by the people in tis community.
Thanks again for everything.
