Cell Phone Technician: Richard, Technician replied 4 months ago

Thanks

You will have to reset the iPhone, there is no other way to remove this. It will remove all your data and return the phone to new but this you cannot avoid

To do the reset

Connect the phone to the computer and open itunes

Hold the power and home button down until you see

"iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode..."

Click Restore Phone, let this complete and it should now work

Let me know the results please

Thank you
