my new htc eris is locked and I can not recall the swipe password I put in it. I did not establish a gmail account, so sync never took place. I just set up a gmail account. How do I get back into it without a hard reset, or how do I back up my #s before a hard reset?
:welcome: to the forum! I think you're going to have to go to Verizon to fix that problem. Good luck!
My phone black sceens me every so often too. Track ball is flashing, stuff is happening and I can't get into my phone, WTF. I take the back off, remove the battery for a few seconds, reinstall the battery and I'm back to normal. What ever normal is on a droid??!!
Not sure posting how to thwart a locked phone's security on a public website is such a good idea, even if such a method existed.

Good point, LWA. :)

Not that I'm complaining about that, that part just stood out to me. I could be wrong on this though.
