    Default After restore, iTunes wants a password?
    A friend of mine asked me to try and get his wifi working on a old 2g iPhone. He is running 3.1.2
    I tried the network reset trick. That didn't work, so I decided to restore.

    We backed up the iPhone to iTunes. Normally the phone has a finder passcode lock for everyday use.

    I then did a restore. When we reconnected to iTunes to reinstalled the back-up from the last sync, iTunes is asking for a password.
    I've never entered a password when syncing before. I thought maybe it was referring to the phone passcode. But that did not work. I tried the computer admin password, that did not work.

    Any suggestions? The info from that last back up is crucial as it has notes we need.

    Did you password encrypt the backup itself? Maybe that is the password it is looking for.
