iPhone asking for Passcode before adding one! – Phone locked


While setting up a new iPhone, at the step where you are supposed to type your new Passcode, we let the screen lock. When trying to unlock it it was asking for the Passcode to unlock! Since we never gave it a Passcode that made it impossible to unlock the phone. We tried using the iCloud password with no success..

Please note that we created an iCloud account from the iPhone on the setup process and used a phone number to verify the ownership. When trying to sign in to the iCloud, we got an error that the password is not correct. While trying to recover that password, we’ve verified the password by SMS but we clicked that we do not have the option to used the iCloud account to verify the ownership.

Even though we clicked that we do not have access over the account, it notified us that it will use that account to contact us!!
