I recently left my iPhone unattended, and it got permanently locked. Since I recently bought the phone, I have not synced it with iTunes on my PC. I have tried restoring it by putting it into recovery mode and restoring it, but when I turned it back on after that, it was still disabled. Is there any other way I can erase/restore it without going up to the local Apple store?
Just take it to the place you bought it with your receipt, the way you worded this makes me believe it is stolen. If I am wrong then there is nothing stopping you from taking you iPhone to the place you bought it from with receipt and explaining the situation to them, they will gladly help you out
