Find Phone Number From a Locked iPhone Or iPad
Guess what? You now don’t need the passcode to access the sim card number of your phone which means that now it is possible to know about the number associated with your phone even when your phone is locked. You see, with an unlocked iPhone, you can easily find your phone number, like you just have to head to the settings of the phone and you can even check the original packaging to get to the number but when it comes to a locked phone, things are pretty different.
Now, before getting started with the process of access, we would first suggest you to check if your iPhone is activated or not and that’s also pretty simple, you just have to contact the Apple support, give them the IMEI or the MEID number of your handset and they will tell you whether your phone is activated or not.
Now, if nothing works for you and if your iPhone is locked or requires a passcode to open then here is what you need to do in order to access the number of the phone’s owner;
There is a feature called Medical ID and all the iPhones have this feature. With the Medical ID you can easily access the information of the owner’s phone in an emergency situation if the phone is locked. The thing is that as an owner, you have to set up your medical ID feature first. What actually happens is that once you activate the feature, you then get an option of medical id on your lock screen and you can fill it up with all your medical information and emergency contacts when in need. This way if you ever meet an accident or if you are going through an emergency, you can quickly make a call to the contact that you have added in Medical ID and for that, you won’t even have to unlock your iPhone.
This is how you can access your Medical ID even when your handset is locked. Now, we are going to tell you about the setup process that you need to go through in order to activate the Medical ID feature on your handset.
How To Set Up Your Medical ID In The Health App Of Your iPhone
Before starting with the step by step process, let’s talk about the importance of having a Medical ID on your phone and how can it help you in an emergency.
You see, you never know when an emergency situation comes up or you never know when you meet an accident. Now in such situations, obviously the first responder won’t be able to open up the lock on your iPhone and he would need to know about your personal information or he would have to contact anyone who is in your emergency list. Now, this is where the Medical ID features comes handy.
You can upload all your personal medical information on the Health App that is available on your handset and that information is then stored in the cloud. Also, you can add your emergency contacts to whom you can call if you aren’t able to unlock your phone.
Now, here is a step by step process to set up your Medical ID
- You first need to go to the Health App of your phone and then go to the edit section of the Medical ID.
