    So I upgraded to the new iPhone and forgot to remove my password lock from this note that I had locked in my previous phone. I tried to open the note with the password I placed at the time(6months ago), it's telling me it's wrong and my hint isn't helping at all. I've tried every password I can think of that I would use and nothing I working.

    Is there a way to go about unlocking this note either by iTunes or a backup reset or am I SOL and should just forgot about what's inside the note? I've tried google searching some answers but nothing is showing me a backend way of doing this. Only stuff that is already in the settings to reset the password (if you know what the old one is).

    Any help would be appreciated!

    You are out of luck. You will have to have the password that belonged to that Note to open it. Unfortunately there is no back way around it.

    Yea that's what I figured. I'm surprised apple has it this way though. Oh well, lesson learned. Thanks for the reply!

    Me too... Otherwise what's the point of the password if easily bypassed?
