Bypass passcode on iPhone 5s without SIM card, Siri or iTunes.


You must call the person you have bought the cell phone from and ask passcode. Apart from this, there are not many options left. In case, you cannot contact the previous owner, you need to go to service-center and they will unlock your phone for some payment.

Once settings opens swipe down slightly to reveal a search bar at the top of settings menu.

Type "Passcode" and select the third option down which is "turn passcode off".

Learn what to do if you have forgotten your passcode, or if your device displays a message saying it's disabled.If you enter the wrong passcode six times in a row, you'll be locked out and you'll see this message:
  • iPhone is disabled
  • iPad is disabled
  • iPod touch is disabled

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. Here's how. Use iTunes If you have synced your device with iTunes, you can restore your device.

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

I have bought a iphone 3gs from a friend i do not have the original computer to restore factory settings on itunes. Is there any other way that i can bypass the pass code as my friend has forgotton the...


Forgotten his passcode? Odd... on a Mac, the passcode he needed was the computer's passcode, you know, the same one he needed to update anything on the Mac computer or to load any new software. Assuming that was the same as his iTunes password, he also needed that when he made itunes purchases or updated the OS on the phone. Kind of sounds like this wasn't your friend's phone after all! Sure it isn't stolen? Might want to take this one to your local Boys in Blue!
Go to an Apple store and they should be able to do it for you, unless the thing is reported as HOT! Good Luck!

I forgot the password for my iphone


If you have forgotten your iPhone’s Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.

1. First you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process.
2. Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
3. Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
4. Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
5. After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
6. Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
7. Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone’s setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode.

You should then follow these steps below to activate the passcode again.
  1. Click the Home button to bring up the main menu
  2. Click on Settings
  3. In the Settings screen click on General
  4. In the General screen click on Passcode Lock
  5. This will open the Set Passcode screen. Enter a memorable 4-figure code and re-enter it when prompted
  6. You will now be at the Passcode Lock screen. You can change when you are prompted to enter the Passcode. The default setting – Immediately – means you will be asked to enter it as soon as your start using the iPhone. But you can change the setting so that the prompt appears after a certain period of use
  7. Press the Home button to return to the main menu.

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.
