Hi, I'm Patrick Coll, and I'm here today to tell you what to do if your phone gets locked. So, you may have put a passcode on your phone, or you may have a child who's put a passcode on your phone and doesn't know the passcode. Oh dear, what do we do? This is an unfortunate situation. If your phone is locked with a passcode and you don't know the passcode, there's only one way out of this. It's to connect your phone to your computer to iTunes and restore. If you've been syncing your phone and have a recent backup, this isn't so much of an issue because after you restore it will give you the option to restore from your latest backup, putting your phone back the way it was the last time you synced. If not, then you may lose some information. It's an unfortunate situation, but there is a way out of it. So, once again, if your phone gets locked, the only way out is to restore with iTunes. I'm Patrick Coll, I hope this has been helpful, thank you for watching.
