    That would be worth trying. You get 10 chances, after that, you get wiped.

    To stop you from having a conversation with yourself.

    You can give the DM password a shot. What could it hurt.
    Either it will work, or you are going to face the inevitable
    wipe of your phone.

    But please post whether it worked or not, it may come in
    handy for someone else down the road. Good Luck.

    Glad you saw the humor there.

    If I remember, after the 5th attempt it will pop up the "type BB" thing
    but you still get 10 chances.
