    i'm locked out of my phone and the password i thought i put in isnt working. also, its not going to the alternative gmail user and pass after i mess up (i got to 45 incorrect tries). is there any way to reset it without having to unlock it, e.g. via a computer?

    its an original motorola droid, with the version 2 upgrade. i'm also not a very techy guy, despite having a techy phone.

    thanks to all who can help

    if you cant remember the original gmail password that you have linked to your phone i think you might be stuck. i think the only thing you can do here is flash a stock SBF to get to stock 2.2 and lose everything.

    im not positive on this though, see what other members say

    i know the gmail pasword. my problem is just the generic phone lock/unlock password. i just changed it from a pattern to a regular alphanumeric password, and now that password isnt working. the issue with the gmail is that even after i mess up on the lock/unlock password a lot, it doesnt offer the "forgot your password?" option of going to the gmail account

    Do you mean you put in a lock screen password and you have locked yourself out ?

    Unfortunately you will have to take it to Verizon and have them solve the problem for you, we do not discuss the unlocking of locked phones here at D/F even though your problem is probably a legit one, the information that would be up for discussion could be used in a unlawful manner and therefore is not condoned here
