    Hello guys,

    Do you know if there is any way to bypass the iCloud activation in iPhone 6?

    My dad passed away a few months back and when I decided to go through his things I found his iPhone. His email address registered in iCloud was his previous company`s email, so I have no access to it. The company probably erased his iPhone since he had the highest position within the firm and this cellphone probably had a lot of confidential information.

    I was thinking about trying to make a Jailbreak, but I guess you need to have the iPhone activated to start the jailbreak, so I have nothing now...

    Well, hope you guys can help me. Thanks in advance!

    1. If there were a way to bypass iCloud Activation Lock, telling you how to do that here would be violating the rules. There are no exceptions to this rule for the myriad sob stories that have been concocted over the years.

    2. I don't buy your story. It's your details that don't sound authentic. It may be true but it's not the first time I've heard it here - in different variations of course.

    3. Why are these kinds of questions always posted in the jailbreak forums? Why do people trying to break iCloud activation lock never post on the actual iPhone forum? Is it because the people asking the question think that us shady and corrupt jailbreakers will have the answer? Or be sympathetic? Or even be familiar with breaking locks because we jailbreak and that therefore makes us experienced in that sort of thing?

    Always curious why asking the question in the open iPhone forums is never the option taken. But I believe we all know the answer. Asking the already gray area jailbreakers how is less risk than asking the goody-two-shoe people who run stock and would never dream of doing an illcit thing such as jailbreaking.

    Finally jailbreaking has nothing to do with defeating a security measure designed to protect people's privacy against theft.

    A simple "No, there is no way to by pass activation lock" would be enough, eyoungren, but thank you for all your hate! The reason why I came to this forum is because people who jailbreak know how the software works and might be able to help me.

    You can question my story the way you want to, but this is the truth. I`m trying to find a solution because I have an iPad and an iPhone in my drawer and I think it is a waste to throw them away. Mainly because my father paid for them on the past.

    Anyway, I have made a huge search this afternoon and found out that there is no way to bypass the activation code. What I will do is contacting the company and try to activate a new password through their email.

    Please close this thread. Thank you.

    If you bring the iPhone and the receipt (or other proof of purchase) to an Apple Store they should be able to help you.

    There's no software hack of JB that can bypass that. Its an anti theft feature.
    But like said above bring the receipt and fathers death certificate to Apple and explain what happened.
    They should be able to assist you as long as what you stated above is valid.

    Your story on your fathers work was far to detailed. Thats lie catching 101. The more detail you add to the story the more we can question.
    But what am I saying, these topics are never true stories anyways. :rolleyes:

    You could try and contact Apple. It's a long shot but you never know.

    You haven't stated your intent for getting into your dad's phone..which seems a little fishy. What are you trying to recover?

    Either way..Contact apple. None of us can help you here. Good luck.

    closing this thread down, since there's no way around the iCloud lock and its pointless in keeping this open as the thread will degenerate into accusations and arguments
