The HTC ones running HTC sense 5-6 features a "security" function on the lock screen that wipes out everything on the phone in the event the password pattern or pin is entered indirectly ten times. This makes sense of you don't want someone to get any information from your phone but what happens if for some reason you messed up on the lockscreen too many times?"oops, poof all gone". The biggest thing here is that someone,anyone who gets their hands on the phone can intentionally erase your phone right there from the lock screen. We want to be able to secure our phones without the fear of the security.

      Because my phone just did a factory reset on me while it was in my pocket while I was working in the yard. It was a new phone and I hadn't set up the photo/video backup yet so I lost everything from my daughter's birthday party.

      I am devastated. This just happened to me today as one of my children was trying to play a game on my phone. Everything is gone now. My pictures, my game data, EVERYTHING. I am beyond angry. This feature doesn't even make sense. If someone stole my phone, now they can just reset it. I am so beyond upset HTC. I was always a fan, but I will never buy another HTC product again.
