Well, good news I think is that with the auto wipe after incorrect password, would remove the need for a password as it wipes all data and resets the device to factory default.

Take the battery out of the device for about 2 minutes. Then put it back in and see what happens. If the device is not unlocked, then your SIM card would have to be from the same provider that your friend use.

The wipe feature may take some time to go threw but it will finish.
