    If you forgot the passcode (the code you use to unlock your iPad after it was "sleeping"), this is what has to be done: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1212

    If you forgot the password of your Apple ID, go to appleid.apple.com, and follow these instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5787

    If you set up restrictions and don't know this password, you'll have to restore your iPad to factory settings: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414

    Thanks for posting this Johanna, I've had some passcode issues in the past and this is a nice little compilation for what to do in case you forgot your iPad passcodes :)

    Hi, what if the I pad had never been connected to iTunes and have no back up. ??

    Then your settings and data will be lost, you'll have to set up your device as new.

    If you have an iCloud backup, you can erase all content and settings after restoring using iTunes and restore from the iCloud backup.

    Thank you so much Johanna for your quick replay. The good thing is that there is no important data and we both share the same App Store account to download his games again.
