Apple iPhone password rage
« on: August 29, 2017, 09:05:00 AM »
Have to use a password to download apps and suchlike.
Made one up months ago and promptly forgot it.

Now I need to use it again.

There seems to be now way of recovering or changing the password without resetting the sodding phone to factory settings, wiping everything and starting again  cussing: cussing: cussing: cussing:

Take it to an Iphone store, it will be expensive and the spotty yoofs in there will probably laugh at your predicament (although you should be used to that happening by now) but you should be able to use the phone again.  whistle:

By the way, a number of Android phones come with this quaint little thing called fingerprint recognition....  whistle:

Not sure how Acetone Peroxide would be able to backup Nick's data but I plan on being far outside the blast radius...  scared:

Given how similar Nick and BM are I'm guessing that they will have the same password....  rubschin:

So try:

12345678

or

87654321
