Question HTC inspire AT&T bypass lockscreen password

My daughter has a HTC Inspire & recently lost it due to behavior unbecoming for a young lady!! My question is is there a way to gain root access in order to blow out the password file & access the phone or any other trick that wont reset everything? If im being honest, Im scared to death of what I might find but also believe its something that needs to be addressed before something even worse happens! Any of you with daughters know what im talking about.
I guess I could just record a youtube video of me putting a couple rounds in it!

Thanks in advance!

That looks like a nice program to instal on the device after I get into it but as it stands now the phone is locked & I dont even think its even rooted at this time! I need a tool or windows download of some sort. Any help greatly appreciated!

How about this?

It should work but it will require you to know the Gmail account (username and password) that your daughter used when she setup the phone in order to access android market on your PC and download the app.

Good luck

Do you know the # of characters for the password?

Start by trying things that you know your daughter is into... favourite band, tv show, etc.. or simple things like her birthday, her best friend's name

But honestly, why wouldn't you just ask her?

Tell her AT&T needs to know her password so they can try to recover the phone... just get creative, then once you unlock it install the app and you're good to go!

Yeah I figured out the password & tried to install the program but it says for security your phone is set to block installation of non market apps & takes me to settings but i couldnt find any options to allow me to do it.

Is this a relevant article or is there an newer or easier way?

Go to

Menu > Settings > Applications

Check the "unknown sources" box, good to go.

Not sure if AT&T still locks their phones from doing this.. but if so, the option won't be there..

I can't imagine that they would do still lock them from sideloading because then you wouldn't be able to use the Amazon app store..

Let me know

Jesus man ......... i so wish you hadn't posted this bro ........*sigh*.
I have 6 year old twin girls ......... and one of them Gretel ........ already has the most inappropriate friends you could possible imagine ...............

Am not being 'square' in believing 6 year olds do not need high heels am I??
That 6 year olds encouraging each other to kiss boys is unnecessarily early??
Or that in 2012 hair length and colour of garment should not be a big gender signifier??

Dood .......... please tell me it gets better??

No offence, but at six years old, you should be able to dictate who her friends are - so long as you have the mother's (wife's?) support

I do hear what you are saying.. environmentally it's hard nowadays.. so much inappropriate influence from media/friends/etc

but my five year old daughter does what I say.. end of story.. it all boils down to the parents. Act now brother! Save the children! (seriously) it only gets harder.
