    Anyone know what I need to do? I got this phone from a guy that I'm doing some work for the LCD was cracked, so I got it replaced, now come to find out it was locked and I can't find his # anywhere. SO I tried as many times that it would let me to figure out the code, now it's disabled and wants me to connect to itunes. which I did and it won't let me do anything because its locked to this guy that I can't find his #. Anyone?

    HOLD the Power Button and the Home Button until a 'Yellow Hazard Triangle' Appears...(30 SECONDS)

    Then connect to iTunes and it will prompt to Restore...

    Hit restore, and you should be on your way..

    Ya. I thought that was wrong with it at first. From what I have been reading and heard it might be from water damage.
