I will answer this question but what I ask is that you do not give me a bad rating for facts which I have no control over... If you wish a refund at the end of our discussion then JustAnswer can help you with that but unjust negative ratings effects my ability to earn a living.
To answer your question; There is, sadly, no work around for the sign in passcode on this device. Apple has created it with security in mind and so it simply isn't possible to readily get past this obstacle (otherwise anyone could steal your device and gain access to your personla data).
If the iPad WAS previusly syncing with your husband's computer then you may be able to connect it there and have iTunes unlock the iPad.
However, short of that there must be a back up of some sort to recover data. This could be in the form of an iTunes back up BUT, also, if iCloud
was enabled on the iPad it may have been sycning and/or backing up data automatically. I can help aith any/all of the above.If you still have concerns, simply reply back before rating. I'll be more than happy to work with you further
. Hopefully, this info will answer your question. When you are satisfied, please give my answers a positive rating. You are judging my personal service only (not this website or your issue) and positive ratings assure I am credited for my time.
Thanks and good luck,
