I Forgot iPhone password, How to change or get access to the phone?
First of all, as always, is to backup all your data before you proceed to do anything with your iPhone. Since your passcode does not stop you from syncing your phone to the computer so go ahead to save your data in iTunes. In case you an iCloud user, you better shift it to your PC to ensure safety of all your data. Then following the 6 steps below start recovery.
1. Turn off your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch
2. Plug the Sync cable to your computer
3. Plug in the sync cable to your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch while holding the "Home" button.
4. iTunes should say "Found a Device on Recovery".
5. Restore your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch
6. If you have a backup of your device, then you should be good to go or else you will have start as a new device
Problem Solved!

Forgot iPhone Backup Password, i need to restore my backup file!
No matter your forgot iPhone screen password or backup password, you can still continue to back up and use the device, however you will not be able to restore the encrypted backup to any device without the password.

I don't know whether you realize the iPhone backup has a bug, I can say this because I have days trying to access the backup of my iphone and every time it ask me for a password, because I don't remember typing a password I try a lot of different passwords and they don't work, because the file is over 1.2GB of size I have to wait more than 20 minutes between asking another time for the correct password, I found a great utility to speed things and to try a lot of passwords in seconds without waiting minutes for the correct one. The utility I tried was this : SmartKey iTunes Backup Password Recovery - http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/itunes-backup-password-recovery.html With this nice utility you can crack all kinds of iPhone password.

If you are sure that you have typed a password and you can't remember, just try the utility I placed. This software is for the people who forgot iPhone backup password. But to the strange password come across after Os upgrade, it also work.

Once you unlock iPhone backup password, do you also have another question: how to restore iTunes backup files? The answer is easy, don't need to find the solution everywhere one the internet, here is the solution i have found to extract iTunes backup files perfectly: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/itunes-data-recovery.htm

    1. Search it on your computer, the default file name is manifest.plist file.
      And this is the default path:
      # Windows XP: \Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
      # Windows Vista and Windows 7: \Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
