Default Locked phone

Please Login to Remove!

My daughters friends thought it would be funny to put in the wrong password so that the phone is now locked. Is there a way to unlock this and get the phone useable again. It is a Curve 8520

Without knowing the current password, the only option is to enter the incorrect password enough times so that the device wipes itself.

You can then set up a new password (if you choose) and restore your data from your most recent backup.
