WARNING! I hope that this never happens to any of you, my fellow Palmers
I recently accidentally locked myself out of my phone, by some how in a real screwed up one in a million fashion, managed to misspell my password incorrectly twice in a row, by inputting the new password, followed by confirming the password *face palm*
I was shocked, and more than anything just had to laugh at myself about the whole thing. What are the odds?
So anyway, I went to Verizon to see if they could help me unlock it, they could not help at all. They instructed me to speak with someone directly at Palm.
They said the only way to bypass the lock was to do a partial erase of the system. Caps lock key, sym key and the power button, all pressed together for 12 seconds.
Now I am going to Doctor because my theme and a few patches are still left behind with remnants.
Is there any other way out there to bypass having to go that route? or is this how our 'smart-phone' really treats us all, when we make a small mistake?
Is there a patch or app out there that could be developed, perhaps that could get us around this, at all???
