Default Nexus S Forgot Password to Unlock..

Hi guys,

I put a 8 digit PIN password on my Nexus S last night, its a number I use everyday so can't forget it.

However, when I woke up this morning and tried using my phone the password is invalid.

How do I reset the password or disable it so I can get into my phone?

Cheers

If you find out how to put it in bootload, you have to do a full reset. I could be wrong there might be a easier way, but that's how I would do it.

Hard reset, although I think doing so will delete all your info so... you might be sol
