Iphone model a1221 i can not open my phone its locked o forgot passcode How can remove password from my phone?


Restoring your iPhone is a surefire way to wipe out the passcode or password you can't remember, but performing a normal restore won't work as your passcode will prevent it. (Arrgh!) Fortunately, this is easy to override. Just follow these steps:3

  1. Even when your iPhone is locked up, you can still sync it with your computer. Do that first so all your data is backed up in iTunes. If you're using iCloud, you might want to switch it over to your computer for now just to be sure your information is safe.4
  2. Put your iPhone into DFU mode. To do this, reboot your iPhone by holding down the power and home buttons simultaneously for about 10 seconds. When you see the Apple logo, let go of the power button but continue holding down the home button. Soon you will see an image displaying a USB cable, the iTunes icon, and a message that says "Connect to iTunes."
  3. Assuming you still have your iPhone connected to your computer with iTunes open, you'll also see a message telling you iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode and needs to restore. Now you can click the Restore button in iTunes and then wait for iOS to download and install on your iPhone.
  4. Sync your iPhone with iTunes to restore all your data and you'll have it back to normal with no password!

How to bye pass passcode on iphone


Your iPhone enables you to add a four-digit passcode which locks your phone to prevent unauthorized users from using your cell phone.
When you enable the passcode, your iPhone prompts you to enter the four-digit code before you can unlock your phone.
However, if you have forgotten the passcode and unable to use your iPhone, you can override the passcode using iTunes the default iPhone management program.

Restore your iPhone back to the default settings to override the passcode.
To do so, connect your iPhone to the computer using the USB cable that came with your phone and launch iTunes.
iTunes displays your device in the left panel under "Devices."
Click your iPhone under "Devices" and click the "Summary" tab.
Click the "Restore" button.
Keeping in mind that restoring your iPhone back to the default settings deletes all the currently saved information.
When prompted, click "Backup" to back up your iPhone.
Click "Restore" again and follow the final guided prompts to restore your iPhone back to the default settings.
When the process completes, click "OK." You should see the "Connect to iTunes" message on your phone.
Keep your iPhone connected to the computer until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated" message on your phone.
Right-click your iPhone under "Devices" and click "Eject."
Close iTunes and disconnect your iPhone from the computer.
Your iPhone no longer prompts you to enter the passcode.

I forgot my iPhone Passcode. What can I do to unlock it?


iPhone setting:*
- Auto-Lock: 1 Minute;*
- Passcode Lock: On, require passcode immediately, after 15 min or 4 hours etc;*
- Network: Turn 3G Off

Scenario 1: Home screen is active with screen on*
1. Press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2. Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key, then slide to unlock
5. bypassed passcode

Scenario 2:*
1. On the screen of being asked to enter passcode, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
2.*Slide to power off
3. press power button to turn on iPhone
4.*When asked to enter passcode, DO NOT touch any key on the screen, press power button for seconds until asked to '"slide to power off"
5. Slide to power off
6. press power button to turn on iPhone
7.*When asked to enter passcode, touch the "Cancel" key on the right bottom corner, then slide to unlock
8. bypassed passcode

Notes:
1. When Network setting changes to Enable 3G: ON, "3G" signal shows up, passcode CANNOT be passed through
Go to a underground parking lot or a lift where 3G signal is weak, when 3G signal switches to "E" (Edge), passcode CAN be passed through following above steps
2. When no 3G or Edge signal, above steps don't work

Conclusion:
Seems passcode security is related to network status
Possible security hole under Edge

Forgot my passcode


Bad News... you may have to Restore from iTunes. Here is some info from the users manual:
Passcode Lock By default, iPhone doesn’t require you to enter a passcode to unlock it. Set a passcode: Choose General > Passcode Lock and enter a 4-digit passcode, then enter the passcode again to verify it. iPhone then requires you to enter the passcode to unlock it or to display the passcode lock settings.
Turn passcode lock off: Choose General > Passcode Lock, enter your passcode, and tap Turn Passcode Off, then enter your passcode again. Change the passcode: Choose General > Passcode Lock, enter your passcode, and tap Change Passcode. Enter your passcode again, then enter and reenter your new passcode.
If you forget your passcode, you must restore the iPhone software. See “Updating and Restoring iPhone Software” on page 204.
Set how long before your passcode is required: Choose General > Passcode Lock and enter your passcode. Tap Require Passcode, then select how long iPhone can be idle before you need to enter a passcode to unlock it.

Dear sir i forgot the passcode of iphone so please tell me wha i have to do. apu_iit@yahoo.com


The easiest but data clearing way is to do a firmware restoration through iTunes. This will wipe all data though. The more complicated but non data clearing you need to do these things, I'll list but you will need to Google each.

1)Make custom iPhone RAM disk (little complicated)
2)Get iPhone Utility Client to use new RAM disk on iPhone

This will override springboard configuration and reset to default of no passcode.

ustom RAM disk will need to mount /dev/rdisk0s2 and simply delete the file /mnt/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist

Just lookup how to make RAM disk to use! Done!
