    I restored my iPhone 5 with iOS 7 without knowing that iCloud account will be asked. I already forgot what email and password I set on that phone.

    Now, after the phone was restored and unlocked but no application can be used. I don't know what to do. When I connect it to iTunes, it keeps on asking for the iCloud email and password.

    itunes - How can we unlock an iPhone backup file if we don't know the password?

    I've got a rather peculiar problem. My wife's iPhone got stolen and we bought a new one from the insurance money. When trying to restore the backup file to her new phone, iTunes asks for the password:

    Enter the password to unlock your iPhone backup file.

    The problem is, that she removed the password a long time ago. Hence she can not remember it. All we know is that it must be a number between 1111 and 9999.

    Is there any way to brute force this? Other than by hand?
