How do you un-lock an iPhone?

My mom got a new IPhone and doesn't want her old one anymore so she said I could have it. One problem.... she forgot the password and it's completely locked. How do I un-lock it? (It's okay if all the info. gets lost)

take it to the apple store. They wipe it, and you can create a new password of your choice. Good Luck.

Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the iPod, which will erase all music and data.

I gave my son my old iPhone & he bought a different simcard by the same provider but it won't work in it so I know how you feel. I took the old no with me to my new iPhone.

i know you're looking to "unlocK' the device so you can use it, but a lot i found this while trying to "unlock" my iphone so I could use another SIM. if you have the AT&T iPhone and need to unlock it so you can use it with another carrier you can now do it without jailbreaking the device. it's very easy and requires a new sim, iTunes and this service: http://gsmunlocklabs.com/unlock-iphone/
