I forgot the passcode for my old iPhone 4 which I planned on letting my friend borrow while she waits for a new one. Here are the things I tried:
holding home and sleep/wake button until symbol shows up then holding down those buttons until the reset screen comes up. It seems to work but then still asks for the 4 digit passcode to get into the phone.
I tried using the restore option on iTunes but because "Find My iPhone" is still activated, it won't let me restore the phone. When I went on iCloud.com to delete it that way, the phone is not on my account for some reason. (I do have a new phone so maybe that one replaced my old phone on iCloud.com?)
