I have tried all the pass codes I know to get into my iPhone…

Customer Question
I have tried all...

I have tried all the pass codes I know to get into my iPhone to activate it. Now what do I do?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

I have used every passcode to activate my iPhone. What do I do now?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

No, how do I do that?

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't believe so.

Before we proceed further, I would like to ask you few question about this problem. Do you have any backup of your iPhone in iCloud or Computer? The reason why I am asking is we can go ahead and try doing reset on the iPhone which will erase all the data and the password. If you have a backup, we can restore the data and contact back to your iPhone.
