I went to liturgy today for the
Feast of Mid-Pentecost.
It was so beautiful.
I had lovely pictures of it, so nice.
Then I went out for lunch with everyone from church
and I went to call Mr. Husband and all went down,
fast, with my phone...
I was super distracted while I was trying to
do the 'swipe unlock' for my phone, a pattern
that only I (ok and Mr Husband) know to unlock my phone.
So I accidentally locked myself out, trying too many times
and getting it wrong.....
And I had forgotten my backup pin, no idea what is or where it is written.
I have 2 factor ID on my google account, which includes the
Android Device Manager, which texts a code to my phone.
Yeah, the phone that is locked and I can't open it to get the code from
the text... So I could not use the device manager to unlock it.
A security black hole.
Samsung could not help as I had never set up an account with them,
not realizing that they could of unlocked my phone if I had.
Verizon could not help and the cloud storage would not work
as it was set to wifi only and my wifi was turned OFF
on my locked phone, no way to fix it.
And cloud storage was full for months and months so no new backups...
So I lost everything, guessed the PIN # wrong 10 times and
it factory reset.
I lost pretty much all afternoon and early evening.
Thank God, at least, that I only lost 1 week of pictures,
as I had downloaded them all last week from my phone to my
external hard drive.
Now I just have to download them somewhere else, so they are
saved in two places.
And that was today....
with a good dinner and lunch thrown in
and a beautiful liturgy this morning...
