I'm sorry if this topic has already been addressed, but I don't have time to search given my family's current situation - our youngest son passed away last weekend. I want to get into his iPhone 3GS (iOS 4.3.5), but he has the four-number password feature set. I was thinking of just doing a brute force attack using the 10000 possible combinations, but I didn't know that the iOS locks you out for one minute after 5 unsuccessful attempts, then 5 minutes after the 6th attempt, then 15 minutes after the 7th attempt (I stopped trying after that). So is there any way to hack into his phone while still preserving the data, particularly the saved email passwords and text messages? I don't care if it affects any other capabilities of the phone since I don't intend to use it again and will cancel the service after I review the data. Obviously I am desperate to do this and will be eternally grateful to anyone who can help. Please let me know ASAP is you need more information. Thanks!
