    Just hook it up to your computer and restore from a backup.

    I assume she knows what password she installed. Ask her for it. Otherwise, so far as I know, you will need to restore as a new phone and reinstall everything.

    I have read somewhere that the iPhone security isn't very strong, though, so there may be a backdoor for you. In any case, asking what she used for the password seems to me like the easiest way to handle this.

    Does your office like practical jokes?
    Actually, if that works, it's a much better idea than restoring as a new phone. That is, unless your prankster will give you the pass code she installed.

    As long as this really is your phone, you shouldn't have to restore as new as long as you connect to the computer that you sync from. See this thread:

    just restore from a backup as I said above. That should clear the password setting. If not, set up as new
