I joined this site yesterday after no luck searching for information online. I posted a question and was receiving quick responses. A great positive sign. That is what anyone with a question would want to see. However each response was negative. Then when I openly noted the device I was asking about was not mine. I was told that I stole the device. And then the thread was closed. End of story. The Device was not stolen. Someone asked if it was mine. I openly responded no. But for some reason everyone wanted to jump to conclusions and not even give me a chance. Thanks for the help! Why is it that people seem so angry and negative on these chat boards? It seems as if everyone takes there own frustration out on someone else via words in a chat board. If anyone could help me out It would be greatly appreciated. My question was is there a way to bypass the pin lock on an HTC Incredible? I know previously on old software you could hit the back button during an incoming call but that has been updated. As I mentioned this is not my device. But it is not stolen. The phone belongs to my cousin who passed away on Monday night. My aunt and uncle asked me if I would be able to contact his friends because we went to school together and are only 2 years apart. I know some of them but was hoping his phone would be helpful to make others aware and let them know about arrangements. Sorry I didn't disclose all of this information earlier. But I guess thats what it takes for people to not think you stole a phone. If anyone knows a way around the pin lock it would be greatly appreciated. Someone had mentioned a hard reset but I was also told I would lose any numbers that weren't saved to his account. That numbers stored on the phone would be lost and that I would lose recent calls and messages as well. Thanks for everyones help in advance.
