Today, we discovered a method to bypass the passcode lock on any iPhone running the newest software update iOS 6.1. The method is a bit complicated and will allow access to the phone application. While hitting the home button will re lock the phone, the exploit does have potential to snoop through peoples contacts and make calls.


1. Lock device

2. Slide to unlock

3. Tap emergency call

4. Hold sleep button until the power down prompt shows. Click cancel, you will notice the status bar turn blue. Type in 911 or your emergency number and click call then cancel it asap so the call dosen’t go through.

5. Lock your device with the sleep button then turn it on using the home button.

6. Slide to unlock then hold the sleep button and in 3 seconds tap emergency call. This will spazz out the phone and cause it to open.

[Make sure to continuously hold the sleep button until you are done looking in the phone]

And there you go, the phone will reveal its contact, call, and voicemail information.

You can also create a contact and view the photo gallery in doing so. You can also send emails and texts through the sharing a contact feature.

    Can anyone tell me how and why my completely dead iphone4 should send this message while it is not in use nor has changed the sim card: REG-REQ? v=3;t=56B25A6A8A62801E44CB67A0C40ED2F120EDF3F1378C686D778FF26DA40F5219;r=7226d7fa

    if i have got the correct info on this, this is a message sent to the telephone company if the sim card is exchanged. my problem with this info is: i never changed the card and my phone was not in use and out of power at the time when the message was sent…
