HTC Incredible :: Forgot Password And Can't Unlock Phone
Sep 25, 2010
HTC Droid Incredible running Froyo 2.2 (Custom ROM, forgot the exact name but nothing to spectacular)
I forgot my numeric password to my phone. I do not get the option to put in my gmail user id and password, and i dont know how i would reset my password! (have tried over 100 times and I do not get the option to use gmail user id and password.
However, I have full root access, as well as ADB (running unrevoked forever)
So it goes the the screen where it says type in your email and password to unlock. I don't even remember my username or password. Some people say type "null" but it doesn't work. I'm willing to restart everything can anyone help me to reset this phone?
i just got a new x10, put a visual lock on and forgot the pattern,tried too many times,phoned locked.keeps asking to sign in i have put e-mail address and every password i would have used and keeps saying wrong password
Today I made the mistake of setting a pattern lock, and with my horrible memory this did not go well. I could not remember it and after several tries I decided to hit the "forgot password." It asked for my gmail account, and I do not remember creating one, after many tries, I gave up. Is my only option a hard reset? I have a samsung moment.
I have recently wasted all of my time on my tablet. I have stop using my tablet since new years eve due to my forgotten google account password. I have to hard resetting it but my Tablet does not have volume buttons on the outside only on the touch screen.
Is there an app to unlock my HTC Incredible by either voice OR alpha/numeric? For example in a crowded area I might want to type it, but if I'm alone in my car rather than typing I might want to just speak it out loud.
I have an Exchange account that requires a password; with the newest firmware update as of June 29, that works fine. However, when I input my password on the unlock screen, it shows it in plaintext and doesn't mask it as I enter each letter as most phones do. Under the Security settings, I do not have "Visible passwords" checked, so the password shouldn't show, but it does.
How can i shut off the password to unlock the phone. With 1.5 the patter wasn't as annoying as having to type a password every time my phone sleeps and then i want to do something and have to type a password every time. Can i shut this off. I can't find it under security settings.
I was searching through google for my problem with my xperia x10 and I found this forum which should help me! Basically I forgot my pattern unlock and I tried it 5 times and I had to unlock it with my google account. I've tried 2 google accounts and they wont sign in and they work on my laptop! Its been locked all day and its not unlocking!
I unfortunately didn't write down my PIN and apparently have forgotten it on my Nexus 7. I did not get the "Forgot PIN?" prompt, or did not notice it the at the 5th or 10th attempt point. It just says to wait 30 seconds.
Is there any way in my Google account to reset the PIN or remove it? It seems if Google lets you do it from the device through your Google account, you should be able to do it from your Google account.
I know this is not really the place to post this message, but this is the closest thing I could find to google android support. So a friend of mine did too many wrong patterns and the phone is asking for my username and password. When i fill in my login and password, it says "invalid username or password". I tried it like 20 times.I have of course verified the username and password on my gmail, and it works fine. Has this ever happened to anyone ? Is there a way around it ? I refuse to reset my phone to factory settings, i have all my contacts, and important notes in there.I was really looking forward to android, but stuff like this is just unacceptable, really disappointing.
How many of you guys actually use the pattern lock or password before you can use the phone. I have been debating whether or not its a waste of my time b/c even if I get my phone stolen I'm not getting it back. My friends that use my phone can't go through my personal stuff b/c I have a file locker. Even if I did have the pattern lock did anybody create a way to hack it and unlock it like they did with the iPhone?
Is there any way to set a numeric password so that when you wake the captivate up it asks for the password. Currently, I can only find that you can set a pattern to unlock the screen. But no option for a numeric password. Is this possible?
so I checked google and they're not there. Its been about an hour so i don't think they're going to show up by waiting. My question is if I restore will they be there so I can get them this time. Then flash the new rom again. Thanks
I just went from the HTC EVO to the Epic, and one thing i wanna find out. Is there any unlock pattern or password or anything for the Epic? They really need to update this phone with one because i can't lock my phone. People could just read my stuff whenever they want to or if im away from it. Its mostly pictures. What can i do for now, and think they will make a Update for this?
I have just swapped from an iPhone 3G to the Desire and am getting stuck whilst familiarising myself with the phone (and making it similar to my iPhone). I have put an unlock password on the phone but it is a pain as it requires alpha and numeric so I want to go back to using the visual password. Problem is I cannot find how to get the phone to swap back to using a visual p/w. Anyone able to help Whilst here is there an app out there to wake up the phone when you press any key and/or have the iPhone keypad pop up to unblock the phone? Other than that it is an impressive bit of kit and better than the iPhone in many ways but flawed in some basic areas such as the pathetic speaker. It nearly went back when I first heard it and seems a surprising oversight given it is obviously aimed at the social end of the market.
This thing is getting terrible signal quality, and in debug is never showing me anywhere better than -100. Customer service over the phone isn't helping a bit and want to debug the phone using another line. Well, I don't have another line.
The verizon lady set up a gmail for me when I first got my phone. I guess I used that email to buy my apps and stuff because using my current gmail it wants me to buy the apps again. It's been a while so I forgot the email she set up and I don't know the recovery email I gave her (if I even gave her one) Is there any way I can find out what email I used to buy the app?
Since I was rooted I was a little scared to do OTA update. I had heard that it was possible to brick my phone if I accepted it. So I did the simple unroot method and upon reboot I expected to be able to update to Froyo...
Not the case...I have yet to get the notification again after about 1.5 hrs. I was so happy too this morning when I saw it. Worst part?? I forgot to backup my contacts...
I was curious about this myself, and i have seen numerous post about this on the forums complaining about having to unlock with the top button
I searched about nexus since it is similar and saw a few things about the app LOCKBOT, i recommend you atleast try the free version and see, it gives you unlock with the trackpad button and the ability to do custom lockscreen with different styles like Iphone, and different android locks. THis was one grip i didnt like about sense. Stock Android has the ability to swipe to unlock or swipe the other way to mute sounds, which is a nice feature, although i prefer my iphones switch the best
The bad...Ive read stuff about it crashing and being laggy, now i havnt experiended this on the INC, it runs super smooth. But i have been having a few times where the front button will not unlock the phone, maybe an update will fix this or something, but its worth a shot to look at.
