One of my coworkers picked up my phone and started playing with it and "acidentally" (or so they say) put a password lock on my phone and cannot remember what they put. Now I cannot access my phone. What can I do?

Either attempt to guess & hope you don't have the 10 retries until it wipes our phone or, and your best bet, is to restore it from the computer it normally syncs with.

I appreciate your fast response. One of our IT guys suggested I take it to the Genius Bar and since it was on the way home I did. Thankfully they were able to restore it and as I just did an iCloud backup last night I was able to get everything back.
