    welcome, this is exactly why i say backup, backup & BACKUP !! it's not that this is the first Q ever to lock up.. it may not be a widespread issue but the chance is there.

    ok that being said.. i think you are SOL, there is software called WM5torage, which turns the Q into a flashdrive/jumpdrive/whateveryoucallit.. i don;t think you'll be able to install it, but if that would work you can at least copy the pim.vol out of the Q's root, that contains contacts and the calendar.

    good luck.

    Wow. Yeah, if they're that important you probably want to back them up more often. I sync with my lappy once a day.

    how about i think you will not be able to get them out... as i said before, just because the help offered is not what you want to hear, it could be all the help there is available.

    Call Moto. Assuming it is truly your phone and you can prove it, you might be able to send it to them. Honestly I certainly hope there is no way to bypass the password and get data off the phone. If I ever lose mine I don't want anyone being able to get that data.
