I locked my Iphone (couldn't remember the password) after numerous tries.
Worse......can't remember the Apple ID and now completely locked out. Getting a message that the Apple ID is disabled and reset is necessary.
Can you help me get started all over again?

Hi there,

You can try to recover your Apple ID first from:

https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid

Once you recover your Apple ID you should then be able to recover the phone as well.

In the worst case, if you cannot recover the Apple ID then you will need to create a new Apple ID and reset the phone to its factory settings and start again.
