First, you will need to reset the Apple ID successfully to recover your Apple account.

Then you can unlock the iPhone again.

If you have previously synchronized your iPhone with iTunes on a computer, you can connect it to that same computer and recover it:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer [that you have previously used to sync the device].
  2. In iTunes, select the iPhone in the "Devices" list, then "Summary" at the top of the screen.
  3. If iTunes doesn't automatically synchronize your iPhone, do so manually [and confirm that the sync and backup were successful.]
  4. Click “Check for Update.” iTunes tells you if there is a newer version of the iPhone software available.
  5. Click Restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process. When restoring, it is recommended that you [again] backup the iPhone when prompted.
  6. When iOS Setup Assistant asks to set up your iPhone, choose "Restore from iTunes backup."
  7. Select your device in iTunes and choose the most recent backup of your iPhone.

After this process, your iPhone should be restored with the information from its last backup, but it no longer will have the passcode enabled.
