Hi, thanks for using JustAnswer.com I am Cris and will be glad to assist you.

If you do not know the current passcode. The only viable option is to reset the iPhone with iTunes using Recovery Mode.

I can explain step by step on what you will need to do.

Please try the following solution. Restore your iPhone through iTunes using Recovery Mode.

  1. You will need to have iTunes on your PC. Make sure to download the latest version from www.iTunes.com
  2. Open iTunes on your PC.
  3. Plug the iPhone to the PC with iTunes open via the USB cable.
  4. While it is plugged in press and hold the top button (on/off) and home button down together. Continue to hold both buttons until you see the Apple logo appears. When the logo appears let go off just the top button and continue to hold the Home button.
  5. You will then see the iTunes logo on the iPad and be prompted in iTunes with a Restore option.
  6. Click on Restore and the iPhone will shut off then turn back on and go through the process.
  7. You will then need to re-setup your iPhone again and can restore from iCloud if you have been backing up to iCloud.
