    hello, I have an Iphone3 that I kept after upgrading just for my grandkds to play games on. They apparently tried to enter the password too many times and now the phone is disabled. With a total wait tile of over 22 million minutes they will be grow and gone long before I can unlock he phone again. All info I can find says I need to connect to iTunes and restore the phone. I no longer have the cable and don't want to have to buy one if there is another way to get passed the disabled status without connecting to ITunes. Any ideas?

    Wow that must be frustrating. I'm so sorry but no, I can't think of any way to restore the iPhone without using the cable to log into iTunes.

    Have you got any friends who might be able to lend you a cable?

    You really don't know anyone who has a 30 pin cord connector. They are not that expensive and you are going to need it anyway no matter what you need it now for so you can keep it charged so you. Might as well buy one.

    I'm not questioning you're integrity, but if you don't have a cable,(provided you don't have some sort of power dock) how did the phone have any juice for them to power it on and disable it?
