    A co-worked gave me an iPhone he bought from somebody so i can unlock it for him via pwnage. When i try to do it, it brings up iTunes saying it needs a passcode to be able to use iTunes with it. It also doesnt have a sim card in it so how would you enter a passcode since it only will allow for emergency calls in that state?

    Anybody know a way to get around this?

    He got it from somebody he doesnt know from craigslist. Im thinking the guy doesnt know it which leads me to believe it wasnt his if you know what i mean.

    Just wondering if there is a way around it. If not im just going to give it back to him and tell him is is SOL. I just thought you could put it in DMF mode, or whatever that mode is called or something to get around it. I forget how to even out it in that mode from the phone.

    What happens when you put it in DFU or Recovery mode?

    I would only say it was stolen if the craigslist seller can't give him the passcode. I'm also going on the assumption that he's a regular at the forums and not some newbie. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, but not the seller.

    Im assuming it was stolen since the guy didnt mention a passcode to him but dont really know.
    Anyways i put it in DFU mode and restored it and then unlocked it & did a jailbreak. He is going to use a AT&T sim in it anyways which he said a buddy has an extra line and he will pay him to use the card so he didnt need it unlocked but didnt find that out till after i did it and then called to tell him it was done.

    He wanted it jailbroken though. Anyways thanks for the input. First time ive dealt with a phone with a passcode. Not that ive done many of these but ive helped out a few buddies.

    You CAN do that and it will still be unlocked but you will have to jailbreak it again.
