    I've only managed to get the alphanumerical passcode part down a few days ago, and since then, I've only used two distinct passwords. And then suddenly I tried the one I've been using the latest, but it says it's wrong! I tried the other one too, and that didn't work either.

    So my question is, how can I get over this problem?

    Thanks very much in advanced. This is like, my 30th iPhone (slight exaggeration in use), and I don't wanna have to change again.. Help, please.

    Why would you need a new phone if you forgot your password?

    Worst thing that can happen is you need to do a factory reset and start from scratch.

    Mmh. Good point. But that doesn't help. I don't wanna do a factory reset.. Anyone know any other, less troublesome way to get past this?

    Do you have a mobileme (.mac) account?
    if so, log in to "Find my iPhone" and tick "set passcode"
    you can then remotely set a new passcode and override the current one

    /: No, I don't.. Never really bothered with a mobileme account. ***************. Anything else..?

    Additional details that may help to filter any unsuitable suggestions/narrow down suggestions:

    I use a Mac.
    I live in Malaysia.
    It's an iPhone 3G, software version 3.1.2.
    I use iPhone Configuration Utility to get the alphanumeric password setting.
    The iPhone is jailbroken with blacksn0w.

    Dial *#307#, press send and accept, then end the call quickly. You will be faced with your contacts screen. Retrieve all the data you need.

    Then do a restore from iTunes, set up as new phone.

    Don't think there's an easier way.
