Recover your iPhone 3GS or 4 password without software

In some cases it may be possible for Forgot iPhone Password to help you to bypass your iPhone password without using any software. In fact the method below allows you to bypass your iPhone password without even connecting it to a computer. While this is a relatively easy process to follow it does have at least one drawback. This will only help those who forgot their iPhone password if you happen to be running an older software version. To be precise this will only work for the 4.1 version and it only works with the iPhone 3GS and 4. Any other users will have to proceed to the Gecko Toolkit brute force iPhone password recovery section.

This password bypass method involves a backdoor to your iPhone which can be exploited using the emergency call option. Even if your phone has a lock code on it you should be able to make emergency calls to 911 or 112 depending on what part of the world you are located in. Even if you don’t have an active SIM card, making emergency calls is enabled by default provided that you are in an area with cellular coverage. For the record you can always carry a cell phone for emergency calls even if you don’t have a plan. It is a legal requirement in the US for wireless carriers to allow this and for good reason.

So if your phone meets the specifications described above you can use this procedure to bypass your iPhone lock code:

Select the emergency call option. Instead of dialing 911 just enter the hash symbol three times and then initiate the call. As soon as you have pressed the call button click your power button on the top of the iPhone one time. Do not hold it down. Instead click it as if you want to lock your screen. This should take you to the address book that is stored on the phone. From here you can gain access to some but not all of the phones functions. While you might not be able to recover all of your stored data you should be able to get your contacts and photos which tend to be the two things that are most difficult or perhaps impossible to replace.
