    Question Need to reset screen lock password, but forgot old one.. Help??????

    I FORGOT MY SCREEN LOCK PASSWORD, IN ORDER TO GET INTO MY PHONE I INSTALLED THIS UNLOCK PROGRAM FROM ANDROID MARKET CONNECTED USB. THIS ONLY A TEMPORARY SOLUTION...

    HOW CAN I RESET THE SCREEN LOCK PASSWORD WITHOUT HAVING TO INPUT THE OLD PASSOWORD FIRST???

    OR GET A RESET LINK SENT TO MY ANDROID EMAIL?
    ON MY PHONE IT NEVER SHOWED ME A FORGOT PASSWORD LINK.

    Here's what worked for me:I had an invisible lock where you trace a specific pattern with your finger to get in. Naturally I forgot the pattern right after I locked the screen. So I went back to where I'd gotten my lock program and uninstalled it from there. That opened the phone. I chose not to re-install the program because I never want to go through that again !

    I found out the reason I could no longer access one of my email accounts was because it had been hacked by a third party who changed the secret question and answer. Needless to say, I was upset when I got nowhere with the email service when they would not assist me at all.

    How could your dad be confused into thinking that phone was an iPhone? That phone has a fairly large screen - iPhones have TINY screens, the size of a pack of matches.

    Have you tried asking on an actual iPhone Forum? We deal with mainly Android phones & tablets here.
    Another option would be to take it to your carrier and have then reset it.
    Good luck!

    (As for being tricked.... Don't feel bad.... My parents wouldnt know an iPhone from an Android). :D
