well to be honest if he is not giving up the password

You might want to consider just wipping it clean and start fresh Sucks that you had a jerkish man in you're life to be so immature to do that

Anyway i would start using some of the pass-codes he used before pet names familly what ever but ultimatly i would just clean it start fresh imply your own code and make sure he never get's it again

How are you so sure that it is a HE that did this to this person. I know
lots of females that could do it also.
