    Okay, I did something stupid. I tried to see if I could get my password by sending #password# from a trusted contact, but nothing happened, so I tried #lock# and it locked my phone with the pin. I thought it would lock it with my pattern, but it didn't. So now I'm locked out of my phone! And I can't even hard boot it. The recovery screen just says "No Command". I really don't want to root my phone, and I just want to hard boot it.
