Please explain, locked?

Turn it off if you can. If it's being wiped yank the battery out.

Use adb to install cwr. Then boot back into recovery and make a nandroid backup. Then share it!

how would I know if it's being wiped?

I'm guessing it would be if Google found out abou it. Or if the phone was stolen.

If you can't do anything they are probably trying to. TRY TO TURN IT OFF!

After you turn it off (by any means necessary including yanking the battery), follow the tutorial for rooting you phone then make a nandroid backup of what you have using CWM then mount your phone via USB and upload the back up.

After making a back up you may be able to safely wipe your cache and data. It could provide you with a working phone and provide the rest of us with a nice treat!

ok, battery is out.

i'm guessing the lock will not interfere with rooting my phone?

even if i was able to root it, is my phone unuseable now because it's flagged or something?

Not necessarily, It probably is but I don't know how google's software works. If I had to guess you could probably get it working again by wiping data and cache.

Be sure to remove your sim card as well.

idk, never experienced it before. I just assume it's what happens when you lose a phone and then remotely secure it so it can't be accessed.

Google has the ability to force ota to your phone and remote wipe

OP, if your phone works on T-Mobile 3G (not edge) follow this guide up until this point

select Recovery
then it should boot into this screen, if not then repeat the steps to download the image



at this point instead of installing a rooted rom go to back up and restore then select Backup.
wait for it to finish then connect your phone to your computer via usb then go back to the main menu and select Mounts and Storage then select mount USB storage.

search for a folder called clockworkmod on your computer and make it into a zip file. If you're awesome then you could upload it to mediafire and post the link.

Next select unmount after copying to your pc then go back to the main menu. Select wipe data/factory reset then select wipe cache partition. The phone is now factory reset and COULD boot.
