Can I recover a forgotten iPhone restrictions passcode?

Can I recover a forgotten iPhone restrictions passcode?

The purpose of iPhone restrictions is to lock certain functions of the device. They are also referred to as Parental Controls, capable of hiding songs with explicit lyrics, preventing YouTube from running, etc.

Without the four-digit passcode restrictions can't be changed. If you have forgotten your restrictions passcode you must restore your iPhone using iTunes to reset the passcode. When asked, do not restore the iPhone from backup, otherwise the old passcode you don't know will be enabled.

After restoring as a new iPhone the Parental Controls are reset to default and the passcode disabled.

This is slightly ill informed advice I'm afraid :( there is a nice little article on how find your passcode without having to restore your iphone. It's pretty easy really :)

The only thing this did was take over my computer an added in a line of MJMIX in place of my search browser bar. I downloaded the free version and then when I wanted to look for my com.apple.springboard.plist I was informed I need to pay $24.99 in order to do what in needed to recover my restrictions pass code that I have forgot.
