    I tried that (Location & Security -> Security), but something seemed strange. I entered my PIN but it said "Sorry try again. Confirm PIN". I entered the PIN again and again it said "Sorry try again" but didn't say anything else.

    Strange, I took the above events as the PIN hadn't changed. But my PIN does not work anymore. Now I am locked out of the tablet. The PIN does not work anymore to unlock the screen.

    What can I do to get back into the tab?

    Had to do a hard reset. All good. BTW hard reset procedure is not the same as in the manual. Manual says hold down "Volume up" button. It's actually the "Volume down" side.

    Useful to know. I use a pattern for unlocking but had been wondering what to do if I forgot it.
    Do you have limitless attempts at entering PINs or patterns?

    you just get a time out after 5 erroneous tries - you have to wait i think 1 minute before it allows you to try again

    i also like the pattern, looks cooler

    Exclamation Remove lockscreen pin which is disabled by Administrators

    Thanks.
    I had an issue when I used my Corporate email Lotus Notus Traveler on my tab, it forced me to use screen lock pin, which was annoying. I wanted to remove this pin entering. Here is what I did, Go to Setting --> Locations & Security --> Device Administrators --> Uncheck all. Now you can go back to Setting --> Locations & Security -->Screen Pin and disable this option after you enter your pin.
