Not sure if anyone has seen Chris Ramsey's YouTube videos. There was a video he did at an office building under the category street magic (nothing up my sleeves) There was a trick that he did on a young lady to unlock her cell phone while asking questions using her calculator. Does anyone have any info on the name of that trick ? I've tried to reach out to Chris but haven't heard back yet.

Thank you in advance.

Matt, you're right, it might have seemed rude.  I'm sorry if I offended anyone.

What happened is that I grabbed my cell phone and looked at the calculator app and noticed something interesting, something I never noticed before.  

I PM'd the OP because I didn't want to reveal something that was a marketed effect.  Even if it is a standard function on the phone, if someone has published it, etc. routined it, or is selling it, I didn't want to "break the code".

After thinking about it, I'm just going to let it fly.  Maybe I'm the only one that has discovered this secret?  Nah!  

If you have an Android phone just open up the basic calculator.  If it is like mine, there is a button just above the display line called 'History'.  Click on that and it will pull up a list of all of the numbers you entered!  I tried it and it showed the numbers in the order they were entered.  So all you'd have to do is remember the order in which they entered them to make sure you got the PIN.  Then just memorize it.  If you have trouble memorizing the number, ask Harry how!

Not my phone, but mine looks very similar.  I found this pic on the web.

There doesn't appear to be a function such as this on an iPhone, however there may be a secret hack that allows you to pull up the sequence of numbers entered.  I did read where you can eliminate the last number entered by swiping right.  I also found that your iPhone calculator can be turned into a fully-functioning scientific calculator.  You have to hold it in landscape orientation, but all of the scientific function keys are there.  That could save high school and college kids from having to carry an extra calculator.

Thank Ray. Looks like it might be something totally different. I'll keep checking on this.
