This information is something that the previous owner would have because it is user entered. In order to get into the device you wiil need it from them.

How do i disable the passcode on a iPhone 6 plus with IOS 10.0.2.


You can't unless you do a factory reset, this wipes the phones memory clean along with the password or code.

Unactivated phone need to bypass pass code


You do have the option in "Settings" to turn the passcode off. You might have to enter a passcode to get to settings, but then turn it off.

An iPhone can be used to surf the Internet and receive email even if you are not affiliated with any carrier. I have an old 4s that I use in emergencies for those things.

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.

How to open my iphone if i forgot the passcode.?


If you can't remember your passcode, you'll need to erase your device using iTunes, Find My iPhone, or recovery mode. Then use a backup to put your data and settings back on your device. You can try plugging it into iTunes to see if it reboots itself

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.

Unlock code from ipod


It depends on the severity and the settings you have given the iPod... Here's the full explanation. I would recommend reading the second paragraph first, but the solution if you really forgot your password is in the first paragraph.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device on the computer that was used to originally sync the iPhone or iPod touch so that you can reset your passcode and resync the data from the device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced to the iPhone or iPod touch, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode but your data will not be present. Refer to "Updating and restoring iPhone and iPod touch software."

"If you enter the wrong passcode too many times, you'll see a message that says "iPhone is disabled" and to try again later. If you repeatedly enter the wrong passcode, iPhone or iPod touch will be disabled for longer intervals, before you can try again. After too many unsuccessful attempts, you won't be able to try again until you connect to the computer you normally sync with. Note that starting with iPhone 2.1 software, there is a setting to cause the device to erase itself after 10 consecutive incorrect password attempts. This setting is off by default. It  can be turned on by tapping Settings > General > Passcode Lock after you enter a correct passcode."
