I need to log into our Cisco 3500 series switch, and I forgot the password.
We never set a password, and I was able before to log in with telnet, but I can't remember the default password.

Some idiots are using all the bandwidth for P2P and it is making even browsing the web terribly slow for our network.

There is no default password.

That said, if you haven't set a telnet password, you won't be able to telnet to the switch. You will only be able to access the switch through the console port.
