SensorLock permanently locked my TP, need help!

Hi all,
I was using my new Sprint TP and I installed SensorLock. I went into the options and I tried recording a gesture which ended up going real bad. As soon as I saved the settings, the phone got locked and it keeps vibrating unless I turn it on it's side or upside down. I can't get into the phone...I had the default unlock motion which I've tried to no avail. Is there any way to plug my phone into the computer and remove this program? If not, what can I do? Do I have to hard reset and erase everything I've set up? I've already tried a soft reset, so I'll do a hard reset if that's what it takes. How can I do that, anyone know the hard reset method for Sprint TP? I would much rather prefer another solution...is there an emergency unlock method? I can't even unlock by pressing anything on the screen. Please help, thanks!

Those apps won't do any good even if they are already on the device, as far as I know.

But there is no way to install them anyhow if the device is locked, because it will be locked so you can't click install when it pops up.

If you read the comments on freewarepocketpc.com about it a bunch of people said that plugging the phone in and connecting to ActiveSync seemed to unlock it for them so they could uninstall it. Might want to try that.

That did it, thanks! Sure saved me doing the hard reset which I was ready to do this morning since I had to go to work and take the phone with me (and be able to use it haha). Thanks again TurboFool!

Re: SensorLock permanently locked my TP, need help!

Glad that helped. I installed it (and loved it) before reading all the comments, then luckily read them before soft-resetting, so I was able to uninstall and save my butt. Can't wait for a fixed version of it, though. Very cool concept.
