    Hi ive just joined to get some help to see if theres a way of getting passed that bypass code on iphones. Ive found a 3GS phone but im a samsung guy and have a Galaxy S so really I have no need or want this phone to tell you the truth. If i hand it into the cops I know one of them will just get so stuff that for a idea but im guessing one of the numbers in this phone must say "home" or mum or dad or something on it. Strange this is ive lost phones before and always said good luck to whoever finds it but i really want to return this phone and im being honest...

    This is the internet. For all we know you stole it and are trying to bypass the lock screen. If you are serious about getting it back, the best way is to let the authorities handle it. If you choose not to do this, it's unlikely anyone will spend any more time trying to convince you.

    Slide to unlock, tap Emergency Call. Enter '####", hit call, and immediately hit the lock button. It should kick you into the Phone application. Tap Contacts on the bottom and voila.

    Works on my 3GS (4.0.1) and both of my 4s (one on 4.0.1 and the other on 4.1). Not sure why 'iMaconApple' thinks it only works with the 4.

    This method should please the 'you're trying to steal it' posters- you can go into the phone app and nothing else. All you can do is look at the contacts and make calls.

    You could take it to an Apple Store if the police are really that bad where you live.
