    I set my lock screen PIN, after taking pain medication.......I cannot remember what I set the dumb thing at! I have tried the thing 55 times and it just keeps telling me, you have tried the unlock "5, 10, 15, 20.......etc up to 55 times, please try again in 30 secs!?" Any ideas on how to help my unlock?

    You could attempt a bootloader restart, but I doubt this will help.
    Do you have a favorite set or grouping of numbers you often use?
    Since my phone is always on me, I find using a PIN code to lock/unlock my screen is an annoyance far more than a security measure.
    If you finally achieve unlock, I would suggest you write down your code, and store it in your purse/wallet or whatever you carry, this way, you always have a reference and the actual code in possession, and not need to worry about memory retention when you are going about your daily activities.
