    I've been using Lockpicker on my Incredible, which requires a password due to the Exchange policies. I turned Lockpicker off by accident and now it wants me to put my old password in. I have no idea what it is. I'm on attempt #10/10, and I don't want the device to erase my data. I can't turn Lockpicker back on without getting back into the menu system.

    Is there any way to recover my original password? I would've thought it'd automatically be the same as my Exchange password, but that's not working. Is there any way to refresh the number of attempts I have?

    I'm not sure. Are you sure it's not the same password as the email account that it's "protecting"?

    Call your Exchange admin and stop bypassing security. It's there for a reason. Your EA can create a separate EAS policy for you, but you will probably have to buy him/her a beer.
