    Wont it be good if we could unlock the phone and reset password by the Windows Phone app for PC and verified by logging into Live account or something? It could save our data if someone pranks on our lock screen and makes it to infinity.

    Yes. I think that's a great idea. I think you can wipe a phone if you have Fine My Phone enabled. I don't know if that in itself would remove locks though.

    i feel Wiping would reset phone and clear all data and settings. It would be sad if kids try and lock phone ending up in long long time to unlock and we only can WIPE :P
    It will help if there is some way to unlock the phone by logging into Live account and reset the password. May be idea is from Droid, but it really helps in such scenarios.

    A few master resets and POOF, the kiddies probably won't be playing with the phone anymore. I like the idea, but useless to me as I don't use a password on my phone. Grandkids know not to play with my phone, unless they ask and I am there. But I have a couple cheap older droids I keep around for the kids to play with. If you do a search, there is a thread, or a place on MS to suggest new ideas, find it and give it a try. They do listen, might take a while, but if they like it, it will become a reality...
