  • Found an iPhone. Can't get past the passcode. Any tips?

    Found the phone in my work parking lot frozen into the ice and snow. I had to use my car keys to cut it out. Dropped it in a bag of rice for a couple days and it powers up just fine.



    I have been trying to find the owner but Apple and Sprint have been completely unable to help. A little finger pointing between the two but in short, Apple puts the SS# inside their devices now and does not let Sprint open them up to see it. If they could, then I would be able to return the phone to the owner.



    The Apple store pretty much told me to shove it. I am so glad that I am not an Apple follower.



    Any tips on how to get past the passcode screen so that I can find the owner?

    Take out the sim card, stick it in another phone.

        Should have installed the "find my iPhone" app...



        It's amazing how accurate it is. A buddy of mine dropped his iPhone in my Jeep after a hard night of drinking. I went to a chick's house, and he was able to track it there.

            I don't have another iPhone. The sim card in my Droid is different. I guess I could try the Apple store again and make that suggestion. My last experience there didn't leave me with a sense of customer service being their priority.
