    I seem to have quite a problem - which is caused by the lack of possibility to restore/rest restrictions password (could e.g. be done through SMS like other services do).

    The problem:
    1) Restrictions was enabled quite a while ago on the iPad.
    2) The restrictions PIN is lost
    3) "Find my iPad" is enabled
    4) I go to iTunes to reset to factory, but it tells me I have to turn off Find my iPad first
    5) I go to Privacy + location settings on the iPad, but the Find my iPad setting is grayed out (likely due to Restrictions being enabled?)


    Seems to me right I have a catch 22 going on. I cannot reset my iPad becuase Find My iPad is enabled, and I cannot remove Find my iPad without restting the iPad to get rid of Restrictions.


    Help please!
