    ok... dont laught...

    but I was messing with my phone and I set a password for it to see what it was like having one and if I liked or found a need for it. Anyway, I used my phone all afternoon and I locked and unlocked the phone fine. I remember my password, but for some reason now it wont let me back in!? I even connected it back to my DM and it asked for the password and it was correct and went on to sync and everything. So I know I'm typing it right. wtf!?!??!

    any way I can reset the password somehow to get back in?

    You can go back to the DM and backup the phone....and use 10 wrong passwords in a row and wipe the phone....

    You do a bat pull?

    Yes and no. After 10 failed attempts it will wipe the device including all data which will remove the password.

    Make sure caps, alt ... is not active and try your password again.

    Check to make sure you don't have caps lock or num lock stuck on. If you've been able to unlock it without any problem today and you know the password, I bet that's it. Look for a symbol you don't recognize in the upper right hand corner of the screen.

    Or you may see a little padlock icon on one of your keys on the keyboard.

    yeah. I did the battery pull twice and nothing. I also checked for caps or num locks and everything.

    but I did manage to get back into the phone. I had it connected to my DM as I started this thread. It must of someone "lost" what my password was, but it recovered after I used the DM to enter my password because I just now unplugged it and tried it again and this time it let me back in.

    I'm so glad. I was out having dinner with my girlfriend and I needed my phone and I couldnt get in to use it. I kept trying and trying all the way home and nothing. But finally, everything is back to normal.

    Thanks for the help.

    FYI - you will need the password to backup via DM.
