Today, I remember that I changed my phone lock password when I was still half asleep this morning, but I don't remember what I changed it to. FML

Now I have to change my password.

It will come to you....almost as bad as when assholes get it locked for hours

There you are, Jenny! It's not a great password if it's on every bathroom wall in America.

Why have a lock password? I don't wanna be locked out of my phone

So no one can check your browser history 75

This is why it's best to have passcodes that are simple, but not obvious. Such as a pattern.

I always write mine down everytime I change it just in case I forget.

I hate when people do that! Some dumb-asses...

That sucks. Can you do a factory reset? You'll lose all your stuff but it doesn't sound like you have a choice.

He has to be able to go to the menu first for a factory reset and anyways he'll need the password to

Assuming it's an iPhone then they can do it through iTunes.

47 - #4 is actually correct. You can put the phone in recovery mode and reset it without the use of the pass code. Don't slander people's advice if you don't know much about the way iOS devices work.

Thank you 72 and 82. I don't why other people aren't aware of that option.

If its jail broken (and an iOS) then he cold use clever pin .

He has to put it into DFU mode (Device Firmware Update mode). Nowadays Apple makes the iPhone or iTouch useless without the passcode. Sorry OP

Where did it ever say that it was actually an iPhone? OP could've had a Blackberry or a HTC for all we know.

People tend to read things that aren't really there.

125 is right sorry. A lot of people have iPhones so I just figured...whatever.

Once, I've got this tweak for my iPhone that requires me to solve math when the alarm goes off... I nearly threw my iPhone out of the window.

Strange how this has nothing to do with the FML. Except for the mentioning of a phone. I'll give you that.

Sorry OP, but why would you do that half-asleep?

He probably didn't reason it out.. He was half asleep.

Doing anything while you're half asleep is never a good idea. Ever.

TheEpicMilkMan 13

Yeah, never do anything while half asleep, I found that out when I woke up with my milk truck bit open by shark here :(

FMLshark, your picture scares me. O.O

Doing something half asleep is almost as bad as doing something drunk.

I find that going back to sleep when I'm half-asleep is a good idea.

Except sex. Sex is good all the time.

It's said that staying awake for 17+ hours has the same effect of 2 glasses of wine on the brain ^_^

what_ever2007 11

Aww, *sympathy*, that happened to me once with an entire computer!! I put a password on the SCREEN SAVER! I can be really bad about wanting to make a password so good that no one can guess it.......then I find out that *I* can't guess it either!!

Password on the screensaver... BRILLIANT!

Once when going on vacation I changed my password on my desktop, when I got back a month later I had no idea what it was. Had to do a reset and lost 5 years worth of pics and other files. It sucked

You are an idiot... Why not make it something easy to remember?

what_ever2007 11

SloppyFlamingo -- LO388 got it right: emphasis. :) aerrol -- lol ikr? This was like 10 years ago when I was a kid, and I thought it was a good idea! :P lol DevilBoi69x -- Dang, that really stinks. :( It'd be really upsetting to lose everything from the past 5 years! (That's an understatement!) It's never happened to me, but it's happened to someone I'm close to -- really sucks. Bazinga2010 -- thanks for the completely wonderful insult directed at something I did when I was like 13 years old!! Does it make you feel better about yourself when you insult someone else? (I also already answered your question before you asked it when I said I wanted to make a password that no one could guess, so I made it so hard that I couldn't even guess it! lol <-- that was supposed to be lighthearted, but apparently for you, it was grounds for an insult. Thanks for your negativity! *sarcasm* )

Forgot your password? Recover your files (after OS re-install, etc.) from its weekly backup.... Oh, you forgot to create the (weekly) backup? YDI :-)

Just don't be one of those people who keep putting random numbers in and locks your phone for hours.

That happened to my friend, she did it twice in a row and we had to reset her phone both times... Smart people

I do not understand why not just turn the phone off. then back on. the lock (at least on my phone) is not used the second you turn it on.

^ For an iPhone and the majority of touch-screen smart phones, I think it -is-. ....... (It depends on your settings, though.)
