I have a Sumsung Continuum, and my carrier is verizon & I had the same problem, except my 6 yr old kept drawing the wrong pattern & it locked me out completely, i could only receive calls couldnt text or make any outgoing calls. I contacted verizon & talked with several different agents & they all gave me same solution. A hard reset that only they can perform. I lost all of my text messages but was able to keep my contacts (that were either backed up or saved to my google account) & they were able to save my pictures.........but yah, hard rest was the only way they were able to fix my problem....hope this helps....good luck!

I have forgotten my password

Your phone will lock you out if you incorrectly on the tenth time or maybe the third time. However, there are two ways you can reset your passcode to access your device.
1. contact the service provider, verify the account, and ask to reset passcode.
2. If they try to transfer you to HTC the manufacturer, dont bother because HTC only takes u through a master reset to unlock the device. A master reset will erase everything on your device, so transfer information you need onto your sd card first. check your voice messages as well cause you may loose them.
Your service provider online has the device tutorial that will take you through a step by step process of performing a master reset.

My Blackberry 7250 locked me out

If you use a BB desktop manager your in luck, you have a back up file? Keep reentering passcode and eventually your blackberry will master reset. Make sure you have the lastest software on your blackberry.
