After the screen was replaced on my iPhone 4S, I a got "disabled for 24+ millions minutes" text on my screen due to battery being unplugged. Unfortunately I have disabled cellular data and I wasn't connected to any Wi-Fi network. Is possible to unlock my iPhone without erasing data? I know the device's passcode.

  • Can you swipe up from the bottom to control center, turn airplane mode on, then off again. What happens? I think that time is transmitted over cellular network, even when data is off. – NoahL Mar 16 '17 at 18:04
  • Thanks for comment. No, I unfortunately can't. Only think I can do is to call emergency. – David Sýkora Mar 16 '17 at 18:08

Connect the device to the same iTunes library which the device synchronises with over USB. This will reset the disabled timer and allow you to enter your passcode.

  • Unfortunately i haven't got any computer synced with this device (not anymore). So it means that I lost my data? Although i know my passcode, Apple Id etc. ? – David Sýkora Mar 16 '17 at 17:43
  • Problem was, that half of screen stopped working and I could not unlock it. I was abroad, so I have disabled Wi-Fi and Cellular data. There is no way how to change settings of iPhone to enable Wi-Fi or Cellular data over USB? Thanks a lot! – David Sýkora Mar 16 '17 at 17:45
