Re: phone locked but I don't my passcode
Try "0000". If not I hope tou have a comp. cable, cause you should be able to download a program and unlock it. I have a Sony Ericsson W580i, and I used XS++ (http://forums.se-nse.net/index.php?showtopic=16338)

you will have to restore it. The only was is deleting everything hopefully you have a backup on itunes.
Hold the power and home key once the phone phone turns on then release the power continue to hold the home key. make sure you are plugged into itunes and when it ask you to restore then click yes. If you are unlocked to tmobile this will undo the unlock also. Precaution if you are running on 3g updating to the new firmware will run laggy also. if you on 3gs or iphone 4 you dont have to worry about it running laggy. hope this helps
If you have forgotten your iPhone’s Passcode you will need to restore your phone via iTunes. 1. First you have to put your phone into the restore mode which is a slightly fiddly process. 2. Plug your iPhone into your PC or Mac with the USB cable 3. Press and hold the power button at the top and then slide to power off the iPhone 4. Press the power button to power the iPhone on and keep it held while simultaneously pressing the home button 5. After a few seconds a yellow alert triangle will appear and the iPhone will say it is iPhone Restore Mode. 6. Open up iTunes and click on the Summary tab 7. 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 these steps below to activate the passcode again.
Click the Home button to bring up the main menu
Click on Settings
In the Settings screen click on General
In the General screen click on Passcode Lock
This will open the Set Passcode screen. Enter a memorable 4-figure code and re-enter it when prompted
You will now be at the Passcode Lock screen. You can change when you are prompted to enter the Passcode. The default setting – Immediately – means you will be asked to enter it as soon as your start using the iPhone. But you can change the setting so that the prompt appears after a certain period of use
Bad News... you may have to Restore from iTunes.
Here is some info from the users manual:
By default, iPhone doesn’t require you to enter a passcode to unlock it.
Set a passcode: Choose General > Passcode Lock and enter a 4-digit passcode, then enter the passcode again to verify it. iPhone then requires you to enter the passcode to unlock it or to display the passcode lock settings.
Turn passcode lock off: Choose General > Passcode Lock, enter your passcode, and tap Turn Passcode Off, then enter your passcode again.
Change the passcode: Choose General > Passcode Lock, enter your passcode, and tap Change Passcode. Enter your passcode again, then enter and reenter your new passcode.
If you forget your passcode, you must restore the iPhone software. See “Updating and Restoring iPhone Software” on page 204.
Set how long before your passcode is required: Choose General > Passcode Lock and enter your passcode. Tap Require Passcode, then select how long iPhone can be idle before you need to enter a passcode to unlock it.
it's a workaround, but it works if you're going to leave your phone unattended...
First, go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock
Turn the passcode on and create a password to protect your phone--set this to the time you prefer for your phone to go into locked mode.
Next, under the same Passcode Lock screen, set the "Show SMS Preview" to off.
Lastly, when you're going to be away from your phone, set the phone to Airplane Mode under general settings. By setting to airplane mode, you won't get any new information pushed to you.
If you're not in airplane mode, it will still show on your home screen that you received a text message from a specific number but it won't preview the message. In order to retrieve the message you will have to go into the sms function, which will require that you enter your passcode.
It's not perfect and it requires you to think about it, but it will work for you.
