i have forgot my password for encrypted iphone backup. i have upgraded the os but unable to restore from the backup which is having all my contacts and etc.. can i get the contacts by any means from the encrypted backup.
Have a Mac lap top, desk top, and ipad. Just got and iphone, but cannot get my mail account started on that, because for the love of all things beautiful and simple, cannot remember my email account password.
Would one of you tech savvy persons be able to direct me on how to retrieve or change my mail account password (using other) its a .mac email address.
Just bought a new I-phone and I'm trying to back up my old phone so I can transfer everything to my new phone. I must have created a password a while ago to unlock the I-phone back up, but now I can't remember it. Is there a way to reset it or obtain the password?
Okay a while back I encrypted my iPhone 3G's backups, but the password I THOUGHT I used doesn't work. I've tried every password I can think of and it won't allow me to uncheck the 'Encrypt iPhone Backup' checkbox to turn off the encryption.Is there anyway to get rid of this? I don't care about loosing the backups.This setting must be saved on the iPhone, since it keeps the setting if I goto a new PC (my usual system is a Mac) and plug the phone in. Is the data actually encrypted on the iPhone when you use this setting? So, I could probably do it by reformating my iPhone and setting it up as a brand new device, but is there anyway to avoid that?
