    Folks - I work for a small company & one of our employees recently left and didnt wipe their company Iphone. The problem we now have is it is locked with his pin code and we cant unlock or wipe the handset as the PC he used to sync it with was his personal one.

    Any ideas or am I stuck with a brick ?

    Its running IOS 7 btw.

    I'm willing to jailbreak or anything to get this functional again

    Disconnect all cables from your device.
    Turn off your device.
    Press and hold the Home button. While holding the Home button, connect your device to iTunes. If your device doesn't turn on automatically, turn it on.
    Continue holding the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.
    iTunes will alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode.
    Click OK, then restore the device.

    I tried that but it failed when it asked me to enter the pin. I believe that used to work but for security reasons Apple locked it out in ios7

    Can you not just get in touch with the old employee? You will need their apple account information aswell to reuse the iPhone.

    Many thanks - the powerdown and hold home button while reconnecting to PC method worked perfectly. Many thanks
