How to backup data on locked iPhone?
1. Okay guys last night i locked myself out of my iphone. I need help! How do i restore without losing pics/data?
Its a iphone 4 if it matters. Im really worried about losing all my pictures/music/data. I changed my password lastnight then almost instantly forgot the new password:/ Then i permanently locked my self out. I need help restoring without losing my stuff. I read online if i back it up now then restore my phone. backup my stuff to my phone again the forgotten password will still be there?? - Matt

2. My dad was using his iphone and it got locked?
Well he turned on VoiceOver and I didn't get what happened after that, but I'm guessing he couldn't turn it of cause he didn't know you have to double click and stuff when its on, so I gues he was putting the password wrong and his phone got locked. It's now telling him to connect to itunes, he took it to an independent electronic store and they said if they connect it to itunes it will erase all his data, and I highly doubt that cause he know the password. I would have helped him but he travelled for business, so now what will happen when he connects to itunes - Jake

Like the above people, they likely not backup their iPhone data with iTunes or iCloud when their iPhone locked, so they worry about lost data. Another more, although syncing with iTunes, sometimes lost data. So I think you would better use a third party tool to backup your iPhone data to computer, here recommend the FoneLab or Mac FoneLab, it not only an iPhone data recovery, but also can back up contacts, text messages, photos, video, music, calendar, note etc from your iPhone to PC.

Back up Data on Locked iPhone

Step 1. Install and run the FoneLab. Then select "Recover from iOS Device" mode and click "Start Scan" button to scan your iPhone 6/5s/5c/5/4S.

Note: For iPhone 4/3GS users, just follow the instruction the program shows you to start scanning the locked iPhone.

Step 2. When the scan completes, all the content on your iPhone will be shown in clear categories. Tick the data you want to back up and click "Recover" button to save all the data from the locked iPhone to your computer with one click.

Step 3. Erase and restore
You can use the iTunes, iCloud or Recovery mode to erase and restore your iPhone and remove the passcode. Here is Apple support guide.
Forgot passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled - Apple Support
