My wife woke me up in the middle of the night because my G2 was making a clicking noise. I got up and it was at a screen asking me to enter a pin/password and i had 0/10 attempts remaining. i didnt do anything abnormal with this phone before i went to bed, same routine as always. it must have been around 2 or 3 am when this happened. i restarted it a few times but it keeps going back to the screen with password prompt. it does mention it found a global sim card when first starting back up. also if i dont touch the screen for a while it really does start to make a consistently timed "click" sound. tried plugging into a windows 7 computer to at least get my family photos off but no dice there either.
this is my work phone and it is connected to an exchange 2010 server but the policy does not require password or encryption. Also the only other person i work with who has an android connected to that server has not had anything like this happen. no changes have been made to the policy either.
anyone ever seen this before? i can do a wipe if i have to but id really like to save those pictures and understand how and why this happened.
