Question: wrote down incorrect passcode


If anyone could help that would be great. I was setting up a replacement phone this evening. when pass code screen set up came up I typed in what I though to be an easy passcode for me to change later. I even wrote it down but when I completed phone set up and went to open phone it did not work. what can I do ??

You will need to erase the phone and start over. The passcode is known to you only, and if you enter it wrong too many times, the phone will become disabled.

Here's how to erase it and start over: If you forgot the passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled - Apple Support
