Locked out of phone! DID NOT forget password

Hey all,

Yes this is my first post on this site. Heard nothing but good things about this community. Anyway, I have a TP2 and recently set a lock on it because my phone would always "pocket call" ppl. My password was set to "0776" and it was working fine. One day while my battery was low, I tried getting into my phone because I had received a text msg. when I typed in my code, I got the prompt saying "Incorrect password".

HUH?!?!?!?

Did my phone just forget the password I set and was using for the past 2 days?

Sometimes now when I try typing in my password, nothing happens when I tap the UNLOCK button. I dont even get the prompt msg. This is really frustrating. I cant even access my phone at all, only can receive calls. Has anyone else experienced this w/ this phone?
I can't believe my phone forgot my password......

I know the only thing I can do is the hard reset, but in turn im going to lose all my contacts and notes that are valuable. HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!

Try the last four digits of your number?

Re: Locked out of phone! DID NOT forget password

There is a slim possibility that such a thing happens if data gets corrupted. As far as contacts go, are they backed up on your sim card? And for your notes, you kept them directly in my documents or on the sd card?

Also do you have it synced with a pc? if so try plugging it in.

Re: Locked out of phone! DID NOT forget password

Same thing happened to my TP2. I ended up hard-resetting as nothing else seemed to work.

Did not lose any data (was all backed up or synched) but had to spend time on reinstallations.
