    I have a buddy who was using an external keyboard on a tablet... I decided to try it last night. It didn't work... I tried to install a couple of different 'bluetooth help' apps like blueinput to try and facilitate connecting the keyboard. No luck... so i gave up and went to sleep.

    This morning i wake up and I can't unlock my phone. It looks like the screen lock activated (which is normal) and it refuses to use the standard on screen keyboard... and 'appears' to be looking for the external keyboard which was never connected. I've tried putting in airplane mode, restarting, battery pull, etc... no luck. I can't unlock my phone.

    Am I screwed? Am i looking at a hard reset or is there anyway around this?

    I searched some for hints online...but nothing seemed to really hit my situation on the head.

    Thanks for any thoughts.
