You need to perform a hard reset. This can be accomplished by connecting the device to a computer with iTunes. At this point you need to hold down both the home button and sleep wake button at the same time until the device turns off. Once it turns off let go of the sleep/wake button but continue to hold the home button. This will place your device in recovery mode. If done correctly iTunes will give you an alert noting that it has detected a device in recovery mode. You can then restore it to factory settings in iTunes by selecting the device and clicking the restore button. Please note that this will erase any content on the phone. I hope this helps. Good luck.

You can just connect it to iTunes, look at the settings of your device and back up all your data on iCloud. If it says that you need to enter your passcode, hopefully you remember it after a lot of years. Next, after the backup, erase your iPhone by clicking the erase all content and data button. That will erase the data and your passcode. Next, set up your iPhone and then log in to iCloud and download all your data and you will get all your stuff back. I have the iPhone 4s and it got disabled as well a few weeks ago and the battery died. When I charged it, it went into set up mode and that is better than it being disabled. If your battery is dead you can just charge it. You can also take it to the Apple store and let them repair. I hope you can unlock your iPhone again.
