T-Mobile Dash Smartphone Password doesn't unlock phone

I know the exact password to unlock my phone.  I chose the option of creating an alphanumeric password with upper and lowercase letters, numbers, and a punctuation. I get two responses when I try to enter it:

1.  The screen won't even allow me to enter the entire password before it goes blank

2.  If I manage to type the whole password I am told that it is not the right password

Tech support said my only option is to reset the phone to the manufacturers settings..which of course will cause me to lose valuable data!

Wich you might have to do.i know for a fact it will fix the issue......if that does not work, try to press the alt key when pressing numbers.....if the computer will recognize the phone, the pc will say unlock the phone first then sync, so unless you have that data stored on the media card you will loose info

Deal with Forgotten SQL SA Password

Here is an essay which will introduce something about SQL Server password such as the policy of what kind of the SQL SA password should be, and also how to reset the <a href="">SQL password</a>.<br /> <br />I. Policy of SQL Server password<br /> <br />Password Complexity<br /> <br />Password complexity policies are designed to deter brute force attacks by increasing the number of possible passwords. When password complexity policy is enforced, new passwords must meet the following guidelines:<br /> <br />1. The password does not contain all or part of the account name of the user. Part of an account name is defined as three or more consecutive alphanumeric characters delimited on both ends by white space such as space, tab, and return, and any of the following characters: comma (,), period (.), hyphen (-), underscore (_), or number sign (#).<br /> <br />2. The password is at least eight characters long.<br /> <br />3. The password contains characters from three of the following four categories:<br /> <br />* Latin uppercase letters (A through Z)<br /> <br />* Latin lowercase letters (a through z)<br /> <br />* Base 10 digits (0 through 9)<br /> <br />* Non-alphanumeric characters such as: exclamation point (!), dollar sign ($), number sign (#), or percent (%).<br /> <br />Passwords can be up to 128 characters long. You should use passwords that are as long and complex as possible.<br /> <br />II. Reset SQL SA Password<br /> <br />1. Way to change the known sa password to a complex one<br /> <br />Step 1: Run command prompt when you have made sure the SQL has been connected.<br /> <br />Step 2: Type in the following command and then press Enter<br /> osql -U sa<br /> <br />Step 3: Type in the command as the following shows to change the password and then press Enter<br /> <br />Sp_password @old = null, @new = 'complexpwd', @loginame='sa'<br /> go<br /> <br />2. Use MS SQL Server Password Unlocker to reset the unknown sa password<br /> <br />As we suggested in the policy of the SQL SA password, the password should be as long and complex as possible then it would be easy to lead a serious problem -- forget SQL password. So here we also need to know some convenient tool to reset the forgotten <a href="">SQL Server password</a>. And following is an efficient tool which you can use -- MS SQL Server Password Unlocker.<br /> <br />MS SQL Server Password Unlocker supports MS SQL Server and MS SQL Server Express 2000/2005/2008 SQL password recovery. Also it is known for the clear and interactive of the design. You can use this tool to reset your SQL password instantly within a few steps.<br /> <br />Step 1: <a href="">Download MS SQL Server Password Unlocker</a> on your local PC, install and launch it.<br /> <br />Step 2: Click the Open button to import the file of master.mdf.<br /> <br />Step 3: Select the SA account and then click Change Password button.<br /> <br />Step 4: Enter your new password and click OK. Your SA password will be reset.<br /> <br />You may have a check on the website to see how bright the interface is.Also MS SQL Server Password Unlocker would support you whenever you get any questions about the program as they got the most patient customer service and professional technical supporting.<br /><br />For more info please visit: <a href=""> </a><br />

I dont know how to get a password on my nokia x6 - like when i go to my messages or images ect.. - i just want a password thing so only i can get in, anybody know how...? thanks x

Select Menu > Settings and Phone > Phone mgmt. > Security > Phone and SIM card. > Lock Code

The lock code is used to unlock the device. To avoid unauthorised use of your device, change the lock code. The preset code is 12345. The new code can be 4-255 characters long. Alphanumeric characters and both uppercase and lowercase characters can be used. The device notifies you if the lock code is not properly formatted.

Hi,i have problem of my imate ultimate 9502,i put a password but i choose easy password but when i try to put the password,only numbers appear in the can i view in the screen tru letters..

If you want to enter alphanumeric characters, when setting it up, choose 'Strong alphanumeric', under the 'Password type' dropdown menu. The password must be at least 7 characters long, and contain at least 3 of the following: uppercase and lowercase letters, numerals, and punctuation.
Hope it works for you.
Regards, Carlos

I dont understand how to create a password can u help me

1-Creating a password is simple...creating one that is memorable AND strong is not so simple. First, think of a word that describes you. Example: I'm funny. Word: funny

2-Next, think of something you like. This could be your favorite day of the week, a color, a time of year, a movie, a band...etc. Just make sure it's something you know how to spell. Example: Black or Friday
3-try a number, may be your date of birth, house number, Id no etc. Example- 1990

4-Finally, find a way to string them together with numbers and other letters. Example: funnyblack1990 or funnyblackfriday

5-You can make the password even stronger by adding uppercase and lowercase letters: Example : FunnYBlacK1990

Note:To mix it up one more time (and really confuse the infiltrators,) try using a letter that sounds like the way yours is spelled: Example: FunyBlck90
Hope this will help. Thank you for using fixya !!!
