I have an 8520 Curve, and while sleeping I seem to have changed my password. What do I need to do in order to unlock my phone? Preferably keeping my privacy information. PLEASE HELP!!!

Do you take Ambien by any chance?
Just curious, because I took it for a short period until I realized that I did the dishes at 2:00am and had no recollection of it.
Amazing drug.

You need to remember your password. If you can't, then you can enter the password incorrectly until the device wipes itself.
You can then set a new password and restore your data from your most recent backup.

Do you really expect us to believe that?

What is the real story?

Actually people taking Ambien do all kinds of things in their sleep - it's possible he did that. I know someone who went grocery shopping in the middle of the night, woke up inside the supermarket and didn't know how he got there. He cut way back on the dose of Ambien after that.
