Has anyone tried to access an IPhone of their beloved one without the password to open the phone eg…eg 4 or 6 numbers however they had it set. I’ve tried. I have even asked the police to take the phone as I know there is stuff on there, but they don’t seem that bothered. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I have contacted Apple support but not got anywhere. Thank you xx
I’m sorry to hear the distress this is causing you. You would need to seek legal advice on this, as you may need to go through court action in order to access your loved one’s digital devices unless they have left provision in a will.
Take care, Rhi
Thank you, maybe I will contact my solicitor who is dealing with loads of stuff for me. Thanks again and greatly appreciated xx
Thats one thing I discovered when my daughter died that i had no idea how to access her phone and all the photos on there…i was lucky that I managed to guess correctly eventually but there were things on there that I wish I’d never read…whilst it was amazing to access her photos there was also things that should have remained private and things that hurt me and her sister…be careful
I have tried so many times to get in it. I’ve even told the police they need to access it as I am convinced there is info on there which they should look at. However a very valid point that what you may see is very upsetting and perhaps not beneficial to us to see. Thank you for replying xx
@MJG there are mobile shops or stalls in large towns where they can unlock phones xx
Thank you. I live on the coast but next time I’m near my nearest city I will call in one of those mobile shops:+1: xx
If you have a deatch certificate you can contact apple that will unlock the phone i have juat done this with my sons so it was a we bit of waiting as they gave me a date it would happen…hope this helps sending love
Thank you will try apple when I have the death certificate xx
I waited a couple of days then they gave me control of the phone…i cloud…some of it was hard hitting but i enjoyed the photos of my boy n grandaughter…apple are great…sending u love xxx
Thank you Karla for taking the time to reply xx
No problem…be strong going through the phone its no easy but gave me the answers i was looking for
I have after along time got access to his iCloud account getting on it via my iPad, some very disturbing things I found, but also some nice things, I just know that if I could get access to his phone it would answer some questions. I’m keep telling the police they need it but they say no. They do have access to his iCloud account. It’s only me and the police that have the password, not even my partner. I am when I feeling ok keep looking at bits on there and I think I have made a bit of connection with a few things that were going on, drugs related so I hope the police have worked it out. Going to give it a few days then email then they can hand it to their intelligence team. I e lost my son through drugs, if I can save one person or stop someone dealing then I think that helps. I’m in complete meltdown at the moment and can’t wait for the day to be over, sorry I’m full of gloom xx
Dont be sorry i am the same most days im just a message away if u ever want to chat…i feel absolutely the same…the police took2 of my boys phns and his ipad…he was in it real bad too i hope all these dealers get caught…ruining peoples lifes…xxx
I’ve just lost my son and the first thing I wanted was his phone, but my daughter told me not to go through it as it was personal and I may see something I won’t like, so I’ve decided not to it’s in his little box think before you do this you may regret it
Think that is a very good decision…i did manage to get into my daughter’s phone and there were things that me and my other daughter should never have read…some were hurtful and it does taint your memory of them…it was lovely to access her photos but everything else should have stayed private
The police have said they are not able to give me my daughters mobile. I personally wouldn’t want to see what’s on there just in case I see things that may hurt more. I appreciate everyone is different though. I’m having a tough day as well.
sending hugs to all xxx
We’ve decided not to look at our sons mobile too . Once you see you can’t unsee and nothing will bring him back
From how I have been today, crying most of the time I don’t think it’s a good idea to try and get into the phone. I’ve managed a walk to the coast with my partner. Sat and looked at the sea. Feel bit calmer. Said to my partner I hate feeling like this but can’t help it, he say’s tomorrow you may feel bit better xx
Tomorrow is another day .
I suppose we never know how we will be from one day to the next .
