No one forget passcode that much easily...and even you don't have a computer........so it make me think that ain't you've stole this iPhone?

If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your data will not be present. Refer to Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software.

Might not hurt to give your cellular provider a call, or an Apple Store. Maybe they can do some "hard reset" or something. Other than that, I'm unsure.

This is a very "fishy" story. OP didn't use iPhone for so long that OP forgot the password, and of course the laptop was sold (although what that has to do with iPhone password I have no idea) I call a likely "stolen phone".
