    Ask the friend, if s/he'd be so nice and give you her/his pass code as s/he already gave you her/his iPhone.

    Or give it back. Otherwise it's theft.

    I was just thinking the same thing.Kudos for picking up on it.

    OP, return the phone to its original owner or report it lost. You know you'd want someone else to do that if it was your phone, so give them a bit of respect and do that.

    Strange friends you keep? Why if you paid for the iPhone did your "friend" happen to ommit mentioning the passcode?

    Right after I posted my reply, I went looking on kingcrunk23's profile.
    At least it's not spam.

    Only two conclusions can be drawn from these threads.

    1. The iPhone was stolen.
    2. Significant others spying on eachother.

    My powers of deduction conclude that the OP won't ever get an answer, will be bashed repeated until a mod steps in, and he/she is unable to use the search function.

    If there was a way to do it then it would kind of defeat the point of the pass code now wouldn't it.

    Either you stole it or your "friend" stole it!

    Don't Listen to everyone.
    It's easy to unlock the phone, take it to an apple store.
    Make sure to wait for the police though because they are the only people that can unlock it.

    Kinda goes to show you what you do actually know based on the fact that Apple generally doesn't get involved. Stores of similar nature can be read here in the forums where Apple have assisted the "owner" of phones and laptops with "lost" passwords with no verification of ownership at all.

    Heck, I walked into an Apple Store, gave my first name and said there was a new Mac Pro waiting for me. They walked it to my car, put it in, and never once asked for ID. I even laughed about how easy it all was to get the Mac Pro out of the store. Red flags is a term Apple Retail staff doesn't seem to comprehend. ;)

    :rolleyes: you do realize the chance of someone

    a) knowing the correct name
    b) knowing the correct product
    c) knowing the correct date to pick up

    is a pretty low percentage?


    maybe you're just a really attractive person ( would explain the lack of questioning :p )

    Sure there is a way, you just need two pieces of electrical wire and a 12 V car battery

    1.) Turn phone on.

    2.) Plug the phone docking cable cable in to the phone.

    3) With one piece of wire connect the right hand side pin of the USB connector of the phone cable to the + terminal of your car battery.

    4.) Connect the second piece of wire to the -ve terminal of the car battery.

    5.) Tap the other end of this wire 3 times on the 2nd from the left pin of the USB connector, while holding down the phone's home button.

    he presto, one pass-code free, jail-broken, unlocked phone with firmware upgraded to 3.0

    No, for this you need to use the David Bain method. This requires one 4 inch sewing needle, one 5 ohm resister, a 9v battery and a gold fish.

    Okay. If that didn't work, you seriously have something wrong with your phone.
    The next option you would have is to masturbate and ejaculate into the iPhone. This should fix it.
    Good luck!
