I forgot the password for mine, how can i get around this to cancel or even change the passwprd?
If you have forgotten your password you should be able to use
the password hint to figure out what it is. You can try a soft reset to
see if that will clear the password but I am pretty sure this won't
help. To do a soft reset use the tip of the stylus or something pointed
like a paper clip and inset it in the hole on the back of your palm pilot.
This will make the unit reset it's self. If this doesn't help then you
must preform a Hard rest to continuing using your hand held. You need
to make sure that you have all your information backed up on your
computer as a hard reset will erase everything on your hand held. Here
are the steps to do a hard reset:
1. Press and hold the power button.
While holding the power button, use the tip of the stylus ( or a
similar object without a sharp tip) to gently press and release the
reset button inside the hole on the back of your hand held.
3. Wait for the Palm Powered logo to appear, and then release the power button.
4. When you see the message that warns you about erasing all of the info on your hand held do one of the following:
a) Press UP on the 5 way navigator button on the bottom of your hand held to finish the reset and show the touch screen.
b) Press any other button to do a soft reset.
When prompted , tap to align the screen, and then set the language you
want to use on your hand held. A screen appears showing the Palm logo
and a progress bar. From there continue to set up your Palm and then do
a hot sync. You should be able to reset a password if you want one.
Best wishes....Hope this helps.
