I couldn't delete an app on my ipad 2 so I searched the internet and found out that my 'restrictions' are turned on. I clicked on it to change it and it asked me for a passcode. I can't remember turnng the restrictions on so naturally I have no clue what the passcode is. After about 10 tries, I still can't get it right. So what do I do? :O

Hi and welcome to the Forum!
If you can't remember the pass code for your Restrictions, you will need to restore your iPad to factory conditions and then load it again manually with your apps. The App Store does keep a record of any apps you have bought, so you will not have to pay for them again. If you have synced and backed up your iPad before this restriction was set, you could sync it again with your computer after restoring it. But if you can't remember setting the restrictions, this restriction may very well be on your backup on your pc already.
