If you keep on trying to guess the passcode and get it wrong eventually the iPhone will say “iPhone is disabled, connect to iTunes”.
Don’t panic – you can unlock an iPhone if you forgot your passcode.

Considering upgrading to the new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus?

Before you splurge on such an expensive device, you might want to seriously consider upgrading your phone to the iPhone 6, instead. The iPhone 6 has many of the same awesome features offered by the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Yet, it’s significantly cheaper — especially if you buy it through Gazelle Certified.
It’s also important to consider that Gazelle Certified devices go through a 30+-point inspection process to ensure their quality and functionality. Plus, Gazelle Certified devices come with a 30-day return policy so you can test-drive the iPhone 6 to see if you like it. Lastly, you can get around those pesky carrier contracts because Gazelle Certified means no contracts. You can simply get a great phone at a great price without strings attached.
It’s totally cool to upgrade, but upgrade smart so you don’t spend a mint on a phone that may not live up to the hype.
