My 89 yr old Dad just died. Before I catch static, yes, I have a death certificate. He was somewhat forgetful and would often forget passwords and reset them (and forget those too). I have his phone and I know his iCloud ID but I do not know his phone unlock code nor his iCloud ID. When I try to reset his iCloud ID, it wants to notify his iPhone (which I cant unlock).
- erase his iPhone -- so it will be unlocked
- have iCloud send the password reset to the iPhone
- get into his iCloud and then restore the phone?
