When I swipe upward to open the camera app (before entering the Passcode Lock number) and then close the camera app, my phone is completely unlocked. This is a security weakness that permits anybody to use my phone without needing the passcode. Is there a way to require a Passcode to be entered? I can't seem to find it. I found a claim in the iOS 5.1 description that says if you click the Home button from the camera app that "you're intercepted by the Passcode Lock" but I don't find that to be the case.
Do I have to reset my phone to eliminate this function? The "turn passcode off" funciton is gray'd out in the phone settings. I was prompted to put this passcode on while adding a new Exchange email account and did not recognize what I was doing. I thought the prompt related to Exchange..
Have downloaded update 5.1 to my iphone 3gs. I now require to enter passcode before I can access my emails or any other applications. This was not the case prior to this update. Can anyone assist with access without having passcode?
The phone lock feature on Sony Ericsson does not seem to work the way Motorola does. I wanted a feature that would prevent people from snooping around my phone if it is left unattended. I enter a pass code for the phone lock feature but I can still get pass the key pad by pressing * and Unlock soft key button. On my old phone, which was a Motorola, I could lock the keypad and you need the pass code to open phone for use or looking up contacts.
You can still answer phone calls if one comes in without entering pass code. But after call is answered and closed, you get kicked out again. Is there an application out there that can be added to my phone to do this? My mom has the same brand but different model of Sony Ericsson and I want to install it on hers too.
Friend of my husbands gave my daughter an iphone 4 with a cracked screen. This is good enough for the daughter who would probably crack her screen soon. We WANT to restore it and not have any old data. She purchased an ATT Go phone sim card, so that she can use it with the phone. it works, says it's activated, but still won't do anything without the passcode. Isn't there a hardware reset or something?
I have version 3.1.2 jailbroken with blackrain Iphone 3GS ; it has been jailbroken since blackrain came out; today out of know where my phone is asking for a passcode. I can't do anything except emergency calls; what should I do.

However do not have origional computer it was synced with last and also do not want to restore and lose all the numbers and personal information can I bring into apple or ATT to reset for me?

My iphone screen has gone blank. Im trying to back it up in to itunes but because i have a passcode i cant. i cant enter my passcode on my phone because i have a blank screen, is there a way around this so i can still backup my phone onto my computer?
I can navigate around my phone and use it just fine, until it randomly freezes. Also, I cannot for the life of me get in to disable the passcode. I know this is causing the problem because everything was working perfectly until I set the passcode lock. I can get as far as Settings > General > But it freezes when I click Passcode Lock, changes to blue and then nothing happens. I can get into other areas inside the General settings just not the ONE I need to.
Everytime when I connect my Iphone to my Mac and open Iphoto with a phone connection, a warnig window keeps popping up. Showing "Photos in the Camera Roll on "Iphone 4S" cannot be viewed or imported because the iPhone is locked with a passcode." But i have never set up any passocde for my camera roll.
someone thought that it would be funny to lock me out of my iphone 4s. I have not backed up my phone to itunes the only thing i want are my contacts. so basically i am asking for help to log in and see my contacts so that i may wright them down and reset my phone.
Info: iPhone 4S, im trying to to have to reset it.
