Hi I no this type of thing can be used by thefts, which i am not! but a friend passed away & police give this mum back the phone but they didn't unlock it, she has asked me can i try to get it unlocked for her to get photos etc

He has a pass code on it, any help welcome please let me no!

You can PM me if you don't want thefts to no!

As far as I know, the only way round the passcode is to wipe the phone. Can't you just take the memory card out and see what's on there? Sorry for your loss by the way.

Over the past two weeks it's been allover the news that all the photos even deleted one's can be recovered, even Snapchat ones from unencrypted android phones. First place I'd look to be able to do that is YouTube.

sorry to hear that.
i know that apple's passcode is so difficult to bypass that SA detectives in the pistorius case had to travel to USA to try to get Apple to help with unlocking the phone because old oscar claimed he'd forgotten the code

if you plug it in to a computer and open android file transfer, does the phone need to be unlocked?

thank all of you,

I have searched you tube and there is a video but it wipes the phone but as i said I dont care for the phone its whats on it! thanks

I would like to no is there a pay service that unlocks it? Thanks

Can't you wipe the phone, gain access and then use a file restorer? Don't know enough about it to recommend it unfortunately.

Other than that, does she know his banking pins as they are often used as pass codes, also birthdays etc etc.

if there any pictures on the phone if theres a memory there will be on there by default if there an sd card in it once youve removed the sd card you an put the sdcard in a laptop or pc that has an sdcard to check
