Greetings, fellow G2G's ;)

Welp. Lets face it, I'm full of problems. :D

As the title suggests, I'm having an issue with my phone..actually more or less my mom is. See, she activated the...Parental Controls thing, Restrictions if you look at it on an iPhone, in the Settings-General-Restrictions area..except time has passed since she has done so and now she can't even remember the password!

And I'm pretty sure some of you have the gears going in your head thinking I just want to bypass the password. This, my friends, is In-Corr-Ect. Don't believe me I'll lend ya my mums # and you can even ask her.

Word to point, is there a way to reset the restrictions' password? She's already tried numerous attempts at it, but now each time she 'fails' (According to the phone) to type in the correct password, it has us wait longer and longer between trying it again.

Any help with this would be great!

Thanks!

Bah..I wish rules like that had some slack towards the latter part of that: And/or Recover password.

Oh well. Thanks for the reminder Spyware..hopefully I can solve this issue. =/

Try this:

This should wipe your iPhone to its initial configuration, even if restrictions are in effect. Remember to back up important data though.
And believe me, the "no password recovery" part in the ToS is pretty useless. Anyone with physical access to a computer can compromise it. Tools like chntpw can reset Windows password of any user, given boot access. BIOSes can be reset at will. Sooner or later, one can remove the passwords/restrictions if s/he is motivated enough.
