Needs activation but has passcode
I have an iPhone 3gs that all of a sudden needs to be activated. I connect it to iTunes but it says that the phone is locked with a passcode that needs to be entered. The problem is that I have no way of entering the code because as soon as i slide to unlock all that comes up is emergency call. I know I can restore it in DFU-mode but that means everything on the phone is lost since I haven't backed it up in a while. Any ideas?
