Without the backup passcode the only option is to restore the phone and set it up as New. You get unlimited guesses for the passcode, so you might try a bunch of passcodes that you have used in the past. And to speed up the process just uncheck "encrypt backup" in iTunes and you will be prompted immediately for the passcode.

Can't say I'm impressed, its been running for 24hrs a day for a week, tried some 20 million plus passwords if the screen is to be believed but as yet its not confirmed even one character. Lost the will to live and reset it as a new iphone, 40 bucks down the toilet it my opinion!

I tried Elcomsoft Phone Breaker software trial version but that is not working at all. Its asking me to buy the software and can't waste my money.

I bought iSeePasswrod based on some recommendations like above. No password found after spending a few days on it. No feedback from their support or sales (they claim 12h answer). On their refund policy, they take no responsibility and make no promise… A big loss of time and money… What finally worked for me was to try every single password I ever remember that I used on the phone (lock pins, email, cloud, itunes, …). It was an old Lock Pin with 6 digits.
