    i've been looking around and can't seem to find an answer, if there is one - does anyone know how to disable the passcode?

    we had a situation in the family a couple of years ago, where a family member was severely ill and his phone was locked, nurses needed to get into it for phone numbers.


    iphone 5 running os7


    thanks all, kim

    sorry, im new at this one, just left bb again - i went into settings>general>auto lock which is set to 1 min. if i turn to "never" my screen never turns off. under passcode lock, says "immediately" hit that and i have keypad to enter passcode - i have nothing in that. and it still takes passcode to open.

    obviously i'm doing something wrong........cause i can't seem to get rid of it,

    Have to know the passcode to start with. There's no workaround if you don't know the code.

    Or, if that's the only reason, just make an image with the phone numbers and make that the lock screen image.

    We just had "let's all forget our passcodes" week. I'm getting good at doing factory resets since none of our users backup to iCloud and Websense blocks iTunes from the PCs. Are there any good "back door" apps out there so we can save these good folks from themselves?

    The advice given here does not work. After you've entered the passcode, selected Turn Passcode Off, and waited for that process, you will be asked to reenter the Passcode. Sure enough, the Passcode is still required every few seconds as your phone blacks out to save the battery. I will need to call 611 for expert consultation.

    611 will tell you no different. Go to Settings >Passcode>Turn Passcode Off

    Alternatively, you can set for different times.

    Thank you, but my iPhone 5c does NOT have a PASSCODE option under Settings.General. When I am under SETTINGS, my phone displays the following options:
    About; Software Update; Siri; Spotlight Search; Handoff & Suggested Apps; Accessibility; Usage; Background Refresh; Auto-Lock; Restrictions; Date & Time; Keyboard; Language & Region; iTunes WiFi Sync; VPN (says "Not Connected"; and Reset.

    Any idea what I need to do in order to not have to enter my PIN each time?

    THANK YOU.
