So I bought an iPhone of Craigslist a while back, it seemed legit, but as I was setting it up, it got locked. I think he did it, just because the timing was so close to after the purchase. It was running iOS 7 so yeah, activation lock made it unusable. My friend, out of pity, gave me his iPhone 4. same model # and everything according to the back cover. But it was really messed up, as in the back was shattered. It just stopped working a few days ago. as in it only powers on when plugged in and loops the apple logo unless I put it in recovery mode, then it holds an apple logo + cable icon. But when I try to restore it, it always fails. Error 2014, 2009, 2005, 21, and now its stuck on error 23. Is it possible for me to replace the activation locked iPhone 4 with the shattered back iPhone and basically bypass activation lock? Or can I do that vice versa and use the parts of the activation locked iPhone to repair the shattered one?
How To Bypass Apple ID Activation Lock iphone 5
how to bypass the 4-digit screen lock passcode for the iphone 4- sprint - but service has been disconnected
how do i either bypass the lock screen with the 4-digit passcode and be able to use the apps also or how can i disable or change the passcode so i can get into the phone and not erase any of my stored info? i have an iphone 4 sprint but its service is disconnected please please please help
Ok, this is pretty specifik, I know. But I think it is an important question to find an answer to, and Apple doesnt really seem to know.
I just got my iPhone 5 stolen from me. I had a passcode set, so no worries, but the thief immedietly turned off the phone. As soon as I could get to a computer and log into iCloud and the Find my iPhone service the phone was offline already.
I initiated an Erase throug Find my iPhone, which now is pending. Since I had a passcode on my stolen phone, I assume there is no way for the perp to connect to any WiFi, and therefore the Find my iPhone service will not be able to complete the pending Erase.
Now to my question: If the perp connects the iPhone to a computer running iTunes with an internet connection and tries restoring it, is iTunes then able to complete the pending Erase and lock down the iPhone?
Im aware of the fact that the perp acutally cannot restore the iPhone in iTunes since hed be needing my Apple ID password to disable the Find my iPhone feature in the Settings app. But, even so, the perp might not know that and actually might try to connect it to iTunes and restore it. And if he does, it would be REALLY neat if iTunes could complete the pending Erase.
Does anyone have a clue?
Hi I brought my iPhone from apple on the release date it broke so I took it back about a mouth ago they swap it and that way fine.
But I have two SIM cards one O2 and one virgin mobile. When I swap the phone I put an O2 one in it, yesterday i went to put my virgin one in it doesnt work its saids its lock to O2 now what should I do O2 said they wont unlock and apple said they cant. But its not an O2 phone thats why I brought it from apple help please
I live in the UK and want to buy an iPhone from O2. End of next year I will move to Germany, where T-Mobile DE is the official carrier.
I dont intend to use the phone on both networks.
Due to the permanent carrier lock it wouldnt be possible to use the O2 UK iPhone in Germany - no even on the O2 network. According to the O2 UK customer service they are not able to unlock the phone, even if the contract has ended.
What is Apples approach in such a case?

i already upgrade to iOS 6.1.3 but cant pass through the iphone Activation it always say activation server is temporarily unavailable help me
i buy from my friend. but the Safari explorer and Weather forcast seems to be crashed. so i made a decission to upgrade to iOS 6.1.3...
I think it would be really handy for Apple to update the new phones to where you can lock individual apps. Like develop an option for App developers to select a locking option in the template. I keep some pretty private and important info in my Notes app and would like to keep others out.
What do you think?

Now that the Original iPhone 2G is coming up to 2 years, a lot of the people who purchased it, have their contracts expiring. Therefore they would legally own their iPhones and can do what they want with it.
I have heard that other phone/mobile carriers remove the lock once the original commitment has been fulfilled. Does that mean towards July 2009, Apple might in fact remove the SIM lock on the iPhones with the serial numbers that surpass the 2 year mark?

Im really looking forward to upgrading my iPhone to 2.1, but in order to upgrade it has to backup the iPhone first. Its been running for an hour now and the progress bar has barely moved! At this pace itll take at least 10 hours to backup! And if I receive a phone call, Im screwed. Since this is my business phone, chances are really high that Im going to get a call in the next several hours.
So is there any way to bypass the backup so I can install 2.1?

At the risk of sounding like a complete idiot, when I plug my headphones into the iPhone, they dont work, i.e. bypass the speaker. I tried them out on an mp3 player and they work fine. So, I figure theres some setting somewhere that I havent set properly and Ill be darned if I can find it. Can anyone help me out? Many thanks.

I support the iPhone at my business. One of my users has put a passcode on his iPhone and doesnt remember what it is. He says he didnt even create one. Soft reset of the phone did nothing to help. Any ideas? Anything would be appreciated.Thanks

I cant believe I did this, but for reasons too embarrassing to explain, Ive given my iPhone a passcode which I cant remember. What can I do to get rid of it and restore my access to my phone?

My Iphone is not working for some reason and i realy need the information that was on it.
I have a backup in my itune and i tried to download it to my ipod using the restore from backup option.
Unfortuanlty, it asked me for a backup password which ive never put and without it i cant get into my backup information.
Is there any way to bypass it or find the password somehow?
Ive tried to find it in the keychain accses (im using mac) but didnt find anything there
it is realy frustrating..
Lalala long story, short of it is - touchscreen is only working and responsive to right and upper portion of phone, preventing me from being able to use # keypad to unlock my phone, which allows me to answer calls, view texts, etc... GR! So is there any other super secret way to flip the screen, or do a little dance, or plug it into I dunno.. my trucks jumper cables and cross my fingers?
Naw, didnt think soo..
Is there any way to keep YouTube from switching to YouTube Mobile when you go to YouTube on Safari? The reason I ask is because Id like to be able to comment on videos. It doesnt seem like the iPhone 3G would be incapable of viewing the full version of YouTube, as Im able to view the full versions of many other websites without problems. Its not like its a standard cell phone that cant manage full websites. Thanks!

Just curious if I can bypass the backing up of my iPhone and go straight to sync?
Normally its fine, but there are times when Im in a hurry to get out the door and I just want to add a few songs to my iPhone without having to wait a good 5 minutes for the backup to finish..

will touch id stop my phone from being stolen and hacked into to bypass pin. a friend of mine said that if he found my phone he could plug it into itunes and retore it to new and earase the phone and keep it as his own. the only reason why i would get the iphone 5s is because of the touch id only if it would make the phone useless to anyone who has my phone besides me and would not be able to hack into it. i like my iphone 4s and that was ther reason why i didnt get 5. but 5s would be a good by for me if anyone could let me know if touch id is the solution to phone theft. I think itunes should have a password in order to access the phone anyways. also is apple going to use landscape mode anymore. it seems like more and more apps are fading away form this but i have big hands and landscape mode is a lot more comfortable in my hands. I dont see why i could enable a landscape mode for my home screen layout and all the other apps that i would like to use my phone sideways for. thanks

Please do a recall on Apple iphone 4 and 4s Chargers is this an APPLE call or cell phone company problem Apple please help I I take excellent care of my wall charger and it unravel where the charger is attached to the Apple iphone call can u help
Dear community Happy New Year .listen I have a Apple Iphone 4s:I have had this as a gift since may 2012.Its good,but my daughter and about 10 other people I know are having problems with their wall chargers in home and maybe even mobile im not sure.I especially take great care in disconnecting my device and removing the cord when not in use. the wear and tear cannot be that often to cause this damage we are all having !The cord on the charger is unravelling from the base where the apple iphone is attached when or while charging. I have use the cord in very bad conditions because #one I cannot afford to replace this item at the OFFICIAL APPLE STORE so Im guessing people like myself is going to discount stores to make purchase of chargers they most likely not work! I have tried 3 and none work spending anywhere from $8.00-$15.00 dollars. Im also concern about the fact that a lot of CHILDREN who must most likely go un supervised on using this unravelled IPHONE CHARGER CORD when their parents maynot be aware. I not the voltage may not be of that large in which someone could cause shock or harm Im not certain of this either, However theres always a first Im asking can you either number one recall these chargers via Apple Corportation or two these cell phone companies who sell your product make them accountable for this .I learned today through Apple that the cell phone companies that sell Apple product use 3rd parties material to produce these mobile and home wall chargers and that they are not made by APPLE CORPORATION I WAS VERY UPSET TO KNOW THIS !I am asking you APPLE to look into this very important concern that not just me but other consumers may have before their is an injury. also if you sell a $500.00 product thats MADE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY CERTAINLY YOU CAN INCLUDE A GENIUNE CHARGER WITH YOUR APPLE PRODUCT WHEN SOLD IN CELL PHONE COMPANIES STORES AND STRIP MALLS ACROSS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND SURELY PEOPLE ARENT AWARE THAT THE REAL PRODUCT IS ONLY AT THE APPLE STORE EVEN IF THIS IS TRUE ! ps I called the apple store today to get a replacement they wanted to charge me would only offer me a $1.25 cent discount ! IST THIS WHAT APPLE PAY TO HAVE OTHER COUNTRIES MAKE THE IPHONE? THANKS APPLE FOR HEARING MY
CONCERNS....email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to use my iphone as an ipod without a sim card but it won't let me do anything without a sim card any way to bypass
Help! I reset my old phone to use it as an ipod and now it wont let me do anything because there is no SIM card.
Hey guys I have purchased an iPhone 4 from apple as a replacement phone. The guy at apple has inserted my AT&T SIM card in front of me and everything worked fine. I came home did a update to 6.0.1 and the phone has I guess locked its self? I cannot activate the phone what so ever. I insert a AT&T SIM card that I use and just says Only compatible SIM cards from a supported Carrier may be used to activate iPhone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported Carriers store to receive a replacement SIM card. And the phone wont activate ! Ive been stuck here for 2 weeks any SIM card I try just fails to activate and keeps telling me that. I then purchased a factory unlock for it and still same exact problem. One of my buddys say the phones registered to United Kingdom Instead of USA? Could that be why I cant activate it with a AT&T SIM card? Any help fixing this would be appreciated
I currently own a 3GS, i am planning on preordering iPhone 4 and have it delivered to my house. my question is if i just put the micro sim and connect to iTunes will the phone activate, or do i need to somehow associate the micro sim to my at&t account.
iphone 3gs iPhone OS 3.1.2
Heres the deal Im under a family plan with at&t. My dad is the owner of this plan. I ordered the iPhone 4 today. Since he is the owner I had to enter his info (of course) but also his phone number (I couldnt do my phone number online because its a secondary line on family plan). Its all ordered and planned to be delivered. When I get it, how do I activate it so Its under my line on the family plan? If I activate it at home will it just recognize my dads number as a family plan and let me choose my number? Or do I have to go to an at&t store and let them deal with it like getting a new sim card or something like that? Please answer I need my phone to work and I really dont want to mess up my phone plan or like replace my dads phone with the iPhone 4 instead of mine.
