So it looks like windows store and wallet have a pin. It seems that they forgot to give you a method to reset this pin. Is there a way to reset it? I can't find anything on the Microsoft account pages. And there seems to be no info mentioning a reset on the wallet FAQ

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
Microsoft brilliantly decided that the only way to solve this is to do a full reset on the phone. Make sure you manually sync before doing this if you've made changes recently. The re-sync process wasn't too bad, except that it takes a couple hours and then there are some system settings and other things like apps not remembering your account info. So it takes a while to fully 'restore' your phone.
