I don't know if anyone has broken that yet.
You basically need to beat the password out of him. The whole point of the passcode is to lock your stuff down. And the whole point of little brothers is to do things like this.cash removed my sig of a donation link.

If you have forgotten your iPhone's Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes.
But first you have to put your phone into the restore mode.
Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable
Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone
Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button
After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode.
Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab
Click on Restore to restore your iPhone. This will reset all your iPhone's setting to the factory defaults, including the Passcode. You should then follow the steps above to activate the Passcode with a memorable number and un-lock it.

What is his brother, a cryptology genius? How did he unlock it in the first place, in order to change the password?

voicemail messages and emails are stored in other places besides the phone so they wont be erased durring a restore and text messages get backed up when you sync so you dont really have too much to worry aboutI am the MacBook Pro

exactly, even though the memory gets whipped clean you can re-sync the contacts and text messages, and then just download your emails againI am the MacBook Pro

another option would be (that's what probably i'd do) spend a day trying every single combination starting from 0001 ending 9999... LOL

How important can a few sms messages be? Restore the phone, and if they're lost, then you'll know better than not to let your little brother mess wtih your passcode
