Help! my droid has a yellow padlock on screen. Cannot do anything and it is asking for a password to unlock but I use a swipe unlock. How do I get rid of the yellow padlock without going back to factory reset and losing all my text messages.
Does it say what kind of password? Gmail? Or it is possible that someone did something to your phone?

I have gone to a Verizon store on repeated occasions regarding this issue.

do and would just have to wait until I got a new phone.
I will be so happy to get a new phone in december as this has been a major
source of contention for me. With 4 phones on verizon and $200 plus each
month in phone bills the least you think I could get was a phone that backed
up my contacts.
My son at the <Edited for privacy> line has a phone that shuts itself off mid-call on a
I think that Verizon should sell a better quality of phone. We are likely all
moving to Iphones as our update dates come as each one of our smartphone
lines have repeated issues.
