Problem: 1. Forgotten passcode on girlfriend's 8GB iPhone(cancelled
account).
2. Desire to use phone with T-Mobile.

Will unlocking phone clear passcode protection? Is it possible to save all her old information(numbers,etc.) on the phone?

What is the best/most affordable/most reliable software to use? Too many web sites selling stuff and I don't want to be ripped-off for junk.

I have working T-mobile account and sim card. Thanks for any help...

We'll i'm not sure about your first problem, but as far as unlocking and money. The best program out there is ZiPhone, from www.ziPhone.org and is completely free. You just run the "Do it all" command in the program.

Restoring the phone will erase passcode, though I am not sure about just unlocking.......
don't know about contacts either.

recovery mode restore?

do a recovery mode restore, and then use ZiPhone 2.6b to "Do It All" (www.downloadziPhone.org) and then you are set, sir.

Thanks for the information. Sorry for my ignorance, but how do you do a "recovery mode restore". Is the "recovery mode restore" done through the ziPhone software?

I am good with computers and electronics, but a iPhone newbie. It looks to be a fun new toy to play with and tweak as soon as I figure it out.

I have read a lot of your threads to people's problem. It's great that you are so knowledgeable and willing to help. It sounds like I may be able to save my girlfriends info.

THANK YOU!

after you download ZiPhone, connect your iPhone to the computer, and open ZiPhone, and click advanced features, and click recovery mode.

after a second, your iPhone will reboot, and you will see iTunes say it has detected an iPhone in restore mode.

click Restore, and then when iTunes is done, open ZiPhone again, and click Do It All.

in 4 minutes, it will reboot as unlocked.

also, don't forget to set up your phone as a new phone in iTunes when it asks you if you want to restore from a backup.

Where've you got the fact that he stole it from? :eek:
Just a hunch :)

Plus, if it is really his - his cousin would need to know the passcode to change it, which he shouldn't have shared. Secondly, his questions already been answered in this thread :rolleyes:
