ICE Contact and iPhone Passcode

December 07, 2011
 
As most of you know by now, you should have an I.C.E. (in case of emergency) contact in your phone. In the unfortunate case of an emergency, first-responders can easily and quickly find out who they should contact. These days, paramedics, police, fire fighters... all know to look in your phone for that I.C.E. entry.

However, from an IT perspective, we strongly urge everyone to use a passcode on their phones so that, if the phone is lost, your personal information and data is (relatively) safe. Of course, if you have a passcode, then the emergency personnel can't get into your phone, right?

What to do, what to do...

I came up with a clever idea that lets you have both an I.C.E. entry and a passcode. Using Photoshop (or your favorite image-editing program) create a 320x480 pixel image of your emergency contact info and make that your Lock Screen background.

Then emergency personnel can get your contact information without actually having to get into your phone. Here is what mine looks like:
