What would you like to do?
You found an iphone but its locked how do you unlock it?
Hold down the top lock button and the home button down until the apple sign comes up on ur phone, once this comes up release the lock button at the top but still hold the home button until the connect to iTunes screen comes up, once that screen comes up continue holding the home button and insert the iPhone cable to connect it to iTunes, once connected let go of the home button and iTunes will register the phone. Click restore phone, this takes a while but it takes the passcode etc off

Thanks for the feedback!
Yes. If you update your iPhone's software using iTunes it will lock your iPhone again. You will then need to unlock it again.
Yes, by plugging the iphone into your computer and updating the software on it using itunes.
Well one thing you could do is guess it wrong so many times until it says to plug it into the computer to unlock it. Then I think it unlocks itself.
Why would you be locked out of your iphone? Are you locked out of somebody elses iphone. All you need to do is hook it up to itunes and restore it. how do u do that
You can put a SIM from just about any network in the device and make or receive a call! Otherwise you could go into an Apple care store and ask them to tell you. If you cann…ot trust a seller that it is unlocked before you buy it off of ebay or some electronics store, you may want to purchase a Network Locator service. This will tell you where the iPhone was purchased, model and specs, (optionally) if its stolen, and if is is carrier locked or not. Companies like iFactoryUnlock provide the service and it is almost instant in most cases.
If the info is already saved on the device, yes, just don't do any updates or you will lose everything and the unlock.
just restore (same as reset) the ipod. there are 2 ways to do this: 1: hook it up to itunes the click retore. 2: (the easier way) hold down the power button for a REALLY long… time, 5-10 minutes, (it feels long when you are holding a button)
You go on settings>General>Passcode Lock>Turn Passcode On>enter a 4 digit number for your code. Now whenever it turns off it will automatically lock.

You must restore it
My sister too recently found an iPod on the side of the road and it took forever for her to unlock it. It doesn't work if you connect it to iTunes and go to the "options" butt…on since the computer you are syncing it with isn't the "home" computer. I PROMISE you this works: 1. Connect iPod to computer with a USB cord 2. Once you are connected to iTunes it will say you cannot sync because you haven't unlocked you're iPod-this is OKAY! Actually this is good. 3. Turn the iPod off (keep it connected to the computer, do NOT unplug) 4. While the iPod is off press and hold the home button until an image of the iTunes logo and a USB cord pops up 5. You then wait and it will connect to your computer and you have to update and restore it, this may take a few hours but will get you a new iPod that isn't locked. Hope this helps :) SM
ask some one who can jail break it
If you bought an iPhone 5s from eBay and it is locked with a fingerprint lock, it will not be possible to unlock it if you do not have the Apple account.
I had a iPhone 4s, Verizon carrier but i unlocked it for my friend so she can use it in different carrier. However, she told me that she can not use it because it is still loc…ked. Even technical unlocker person can't unlock that cellphone. She gave me $200 on april but I feel like she is lying and want her money back. Before when i gave her a cellphone. Verizon name disappeared on the screen when service center told me it was unlocked. Would iPhone 4s still be locked? And i didn't take out my old sim card so would it work if she put hers?
If you want permantly unlock then ask the provider which is or visti phoneunlockingshop(dot)ca
