    I am new to this site and am hoping someone
    can tell me how to reset my passcode on my iPad
    without needing to connect to my computer.
    Thanks!

    Do you remember your old passcode? You should be able to enter it, then either turn off the passcode lock/restrictions or reset the passcode that way. Or you can do a restore of the device(thus wiping everything off to factory settings) but I think if the device is passcode locked to start with, you can't get to that screening settings anyways.
    That's all I got, sorry:(

    I think you are stuck with syncing to a computer to do it(even then, I think you'll need to do a full restore/reset to wipe out an unknown passcode without entering it.

    When you say reset your passcode - do you mean change it? Also is this the passcode for your iPad or for iTunes?

    Thanks, I don't know old passcode and yes this is for iPad not iTunes. Will need to wait until I go to work tomorrow and connect to my computer there.

    Unfortunately, if you don't know the passcode to get into your iPad, you will have to do a restore in iTunes. And, yes, with that, you will need a computer.

    The only way you can "fix" this problem is to sync the iPad to the iTunes with which it is synced. As Apple's directions say:

    I just wanted you to be aware of that last part. Your data will be lost if you don't use the iTunes the iPad is synced with.

    Good luck and hope you get it straightened out.

    P.S. I deleted another thread you had started on this same topic. Not only does it mess up "conversations" as people try to keep track of what's going on - it's against our forum rules to make more than one post per question/concern. So, please, keep response here in this thread. Thanks and again, good luck.
