l changed my passcode and dont remeber it how do i fix this
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

Sorry to hear that your iphone is disabled...:(

Unfortunately, the only way to get out of it, is to restore the iphone to factory settings.

Open itunes in the computer and connect the iphone. Now, on the iphone, press and hold the power button and the home button together until you see an apple logo. The very moment you see the apple, let go off the power button, but keep on holding the home button for another 10-15 sec.

your computer will now give a message that it has detected an iphone in recovery mode and needs to be restored.

Restore the iphone now and finally select the option "set up as a new iphone".

Let me know if you have any difficulty.

Thank you
Vinod

It should be restoring. When you followed that procedure, did you get a message in the computer that "itunes has detected an iphone in recovery mode and needs to be restored"?
