    Default iPhone 5 help

    I am locked out of my iPhone 5. I don't have iTunes downloaded on my computer, but I have it installing now. I changed my passcode, but it's not working to enter my iPhone. I need help on how to get into it!

    I hope you have backed up your data recently. Once iTunes installs, you will have to restore your device as new. There is no other way to get around a passcode.

    I am afraid that the above advice you have been given is true and the only way to break a passcode. Backed up or not, this is what you are going to have to do and then start over from there.
