    A couple days ago, me and my buddies were partying and one of them changed my passcode. I've been trying for the past few days and I cant figure it out neither my buddies. It's now telling me to connect to itunes but it says I need to unlock it.

    thanks

    It should unlock if you connect to the iTunes computer that it has been synced with.

    locked out

    I, too, am unable to figure out the lock combination. I did connect the iPad to my computer (where it synced right up) but it is still requiring a passcode before letting me in at all.:ipad-keyboard: The passcode comes up right after slider key to unlock.

    The only way I know of to do this is to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup).

    Good joke though. Next time you're out with him stick his head in the toilet and flush.

    Love that opening. To me it seems that the only way should be to make a full restore. If it was something simple, then the all issue of password was usless in the 1st place.

    I appreciate all the participation - I did restore and then re-sync and will never play with passcode again unless I mean business (which inherently means actually remembering the passcode... :eek:). I am fine except that I will be re-purchasing some apps. At least I got all my books back! :ipad-peacock:
