Re: device password required

There is no "default" passwork - it would be one you have set. Is this a new phone or have you forgotten your password?

Re: device password required

If you bought the phone brand new then there would be no password. 

 

If you bought the phone second hard and the previous user has not removed their password just enter an incorrect one 10 times and the phone will reset itself back to factory settings without a password.

Re: device password required

Then the device should not have a password active to access it. 

 

As I said before, If you enter the incorrect password 10 times the device will reset itself back to factory settings and you will be able to start with it afresh,

Re: device password required

Ensure you didn`t set security PIN for your SIM.

 

If you have set security PIN then whenever you change your handheld or restart it, then it ask you for putting Security PIN/ Password.

 

thanks..!

Re: device password required

Did you buy that from a store? Was the box's seal opened or not when you bought it?
