Re: Help!

Hey Lauren, you've got to remember the password.


After the tenth wrong entry, the device will wipe itself of all personal data, preferences, messages, calendar, address book, etc. The device will work as if new, and you can set up everything fresh.


If you have a recent backup you can restore that to the device.
