Hello Justin! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer / tablet professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Is this the 4-digit passcode/password? Do you mean you cannot use / open anything on the iPad at all?

Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8, or mac computer? Do you have the iTunes program installed/working on your computer?

Can we do a remote session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

Please let me know. Thank you,

No I don't, is there a way I can just reset it?
Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 3 years ago.

I'm sorry, unfortunately, unlike Android tablets, Apple iPad tablet cannot be reset without a computer. Can you borrow a computer temporarily, so we can reset the iPad, then you can return the computer? Please let me know. Thank you,

Yea I can, how do I do it or hook it up? And could I use a laptop? Ans is it going to erase my stuff?
Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 3 years ago.
Yes, stuff will be deleted, but did you have iCloud/backup enabled on the iPad? What stuff do you need?

How are you communicating with me right now? Which device are you using?

Thank you
