No way except by a Factory Reset AKA a Hard Reset.

Hold the Volume Up button and the Power Button from powered off. It scrubs the phone clean, but you should get an option to Back Up first. Tell her to use a passcode that is impossible to forget, or write it down.

You can reset the device back to factory setting by holding the power button for 15-30 seconds. CAUTION it will clear away your address book and any custom set ups you have done.
You also might contact your cell phone provider

My daughter forgot her password for her netbook how can i reset it?

i think you can do it from "safe mode" anyway shut the computer down, turn it back on and hit F8 choose safe mode. wait till the logon screen appears..there should be no username/password.

Right click "MyComputer" scroll to manage, Expand "Local Users/Groups", Open "Users", Right click your daughters account name, Reset Password/Set Password

hopefully that helps...if not then you may need to use a crack cd to get "Winternals" or "Spotmau"
