Hello @mgatto

Hmm that is a tough one but maybe you cam contact Apple for their support. Sadly not many on here can help you with that. If you forgot the password for ur device, that is the hardest thing to get back.

Wouldn't resetting the phone in recovery mode help??? i know it will lose any saved info but that might fix password issues...

Hello @jkroesen

It might BUT Apple's new lock system might prevent it from doing so. Hopefully it does not. Also if the OP doesn't want to lose everything then there isn't anything else other then that
