Answer:

See the following from Use parental controls on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch - Apple Support

If you forget your Restrictions passcode, you need to erase your device, then set it up as a new device to remove the Restrictions passcode. Restoring your device using a backup won't remove the Restrictions passcode.

Thanks for replying. I have followed all apple instructions. I already tried to Erase my device and set it up as a new device. iTunes will not allow unless I turn off find my iPhone, which cannot be done as I need the restriction code. My iTunes and iPhone operating systems are up to date. I have tried everything and am becoming Increasingly frustrated. Especially since I know my restriction code (my phone access and restriction code were the same) The new iOS download either reset it to an unknown code or will not recognize my code. Any other suggestions?

I tried that, too. Ugh...first it said turn off find my iPhone. The second time I tried it (and the third and the fourth) it said iTunes was not compatible with my current iOS, and to verify I had the current version of iTunes...which I verified. At this point I’m disgusted. Thank you so much for all your help. Maybe you have another suggestion?
