Waiting time Attempts for passcode in IOS 3.1.3
I am using again my old iPhone 3G with IOS 3.1.3 because my iPhone 4 broke (and I am still waiting for the screen to arrive in order to repair it).
Until then, I had forgotton that the iPhone 3G had a Passcode, I didn't remembered the passcode and so I tried with a lot of codes, it blocked me and made me wait a few minutes but nothing to do I wasn't able to remember the code.
I've found a bloc of paper with the code on it (I put it there a few years ago in order to never forget it). The problem is that, more than 24h have passed and the phone still won't ask me to enter the code. I now there is a waiting time but is it normal that it is higher than 24 hours ?
I've found in the internet that, after 11 attemps the screen goes blank and everything is erased, but that's on newer versions of the IOS. On the IOS 3.1.3 it still says "This iPhone is blocked, please connect it to iTunes".
The problem here is that it won't be recognized by itunes since I change my computer. And I can't make a reset of the phone since the home button is not working.
Could anyone help me solving this ? Is there a way to force the menu to enter the code ? Is there a way to reset it without the home button ?
PS: Sorry for my bad english.

Is this a good question?
