Could you please tell me what do you see in the Iphone screen? Is it showing disabled?

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.

Just reset it

I understand but unless you made a backup before you forgot your passcode, there isn't a way to save your device's data. You'll need to erase your device, which deletes all of your data and settings. In order to do a reset the iPhone we need to Connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. So do you have any computer like Windows or Mac computer?

Once the iPhone 7 is connected to the computer, please open the iTunes. And then Press and hold both the Side and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Keep holding them until you see the recovery-mode screen. Once it is done please let me know.

Can you try this, Press and hold both the Sleep/wake button and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Keep holding them until you see the recovery-mode screen.

In this case I will opt-out and allow another expert to take over. Other experts will be able to see this question and the conversation which you had with me and they will be providing you a proper solution. Thank you for your patience.
