    After you screw up a few times, it will lock you out and on the right hand side at the bottom, there is a link that says something like 'forgot your passcode' or something similar. Touch it and it will take you to your gmail login. Once you log in with your gmail/password, it will let you reset your passcode lock.

    I have same issue as heythere...

    Per ak8s' reply, I "attempted" to reset the passcode about 20 times. Still no luck.

    Ideas?

    Oh, the one with the numbers? I think the default is four zeros. Try that and see if that works. I was talking about the pattern lock earlier.



    Here is a thread about it. http://www.lgallyforums.com/topic/15...ntry1000008515

    Nope - four zeros doesn't work either. Tells me that current passcode needs to be at least six characters. 000000 doesn't work either.

    I turned on the pattern lock, but i'm a little paranoid that there is a passwd on the phone that I don't know.

    Rumor is that the 2.2 OS update is coming in Feb. Do these OS updates require resetting the phone?

    I found this while poking around on the interwebz... give it a try. Can't hurt.




    If the lock code has been personalized the default codes will not work. Attempt to perform an OTA programming of the device (*228, select option 1). This should reset the lock code to the last four digits of the 10-digit mobile phone number.

    So - after trying to reset the passcode 1,016,710 times (almost), turning pattern match on and off 2,387 times, standing on my head, rebooting, and scratching my back side in random sequences; I finally found the sequence that allowed me to change the default 000000 passcode. Just don't ask me to repeat or describe it. Thanks for your help.
