The phone is running firmware 2.1 and it has my Passcode Lock on it.

The problem is that its stuck on the reboot logo and it restarts itself every 7-10min. I would like to find a way to backup my contacts at least, then restore the phone using itunes.

I have tried using diskaid to get in and delete the mobilewatchdog bundle file from the phone (thinking that it would let me get to springboard and unlock my phone). This hasn't helped at all...the phone keeps on restarting.

I also tried touchcopy in windows and it isn't able to access my contacts or anything due to the passcode lock.

Is there anyway to delete/override the passcode lock so I can just backup my contacts and then restore my phone from scratch??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
