My friend had his Galaxy S5 set to unlock with a fingerprint, however yesterday the strangest thing happened. It no longer asks for a fingerprint, it goes directly to the alternate password. I would like to clarify again that its not that it does not accept his prints like happens to a lot of people, it simply does not give the choice to use them. Now I don't know if he forgot his password or the phone wont accept it (like he claims) but he can't use the alternate password to log into the phone. He is completely locked out. As a last case resort I will back up whatever I can using my computer and reset it to factory defaults.
As a final note I've tried the google device manager to reset the password, his S5 does not appear on his account. I expect that is because it is not a gmail account but a school account using google apps.
I love my S5. Have been using the fingerprint scanner to unlock without a problem since day 1.Today, it wouldn't recognize my prints at all. I went in to try to re-register them, and it won't allow me to. It asks for my alternate password, and doesn't recognize it. I know I'm typing in the correct password.
If I click on change alternate password, it accepts it, and asks me to type in a new password (twice). Upon the second time, an error message pops up saying there is an issue with the scanner and to restart the device, which I've now done three times.For now, I was able to change to pattern unlock.
I bought an unlocked at&t Samsung s5 active phone online and I'm unable to place a call on hold and retrieve another incoming call. the option just does not come up, even though i activated call waiting by going to advanced settings.
I've been using the fingerprint scanner on the GS5 but sometimes I run into problems I tried to enter my alternate pass code (or at least what I thought it was) and it doesn't work, and in order for me to change it I need the original which I don't have. Is there any way to bypass this and create a new one?
My galaxy s5 is locked , it is showing now alternative password option only, no finger print option...., i am not remembering alternative password because i am using only finger print.. how can i unlock my phone...
I can't seem unlock my device using fingerprint or backup password. The fingerprint animation isn't playing and doesn't recognise that I am swiping the home button.I have tried entering the backup password and it says I have entered it incorrectly when I am for certain entered it correctly.Changing keyboards doesn't fix this. Restarting the phone and removing the battery and SD card does not fix this.
I have previously registered for the Google Device Manager and have tried locking my phone, but that doesn't seem to work. Do I need to have an Internet connection or GPS on my phone to do that? If so, I can't connect to the internet or activate GPS due to it being locked. Is there any way around this?
I really don't want to factory reset my phone unless it's the only last option I have.And I have contacted Samsung support regarding this and am waiting for a reply. I will update if they have replied to my message.

I have missed the 24th preorder date and I was wondering if by any chance even 1 in million manage to get on hold of a payg iphone 4 (uk) from a carrier like orange, 3 etc. Is there a difference having an officially unlocked iphone from apple vs an ultrasn0w etc. unlock device?? (other than any ethical/moral issues ). Any specific stuff that I will not be able to perform with such an unlock?, any downsides like slowdowns (if it’s a 24/7 background running service etc) ?
I know that O2 official unlock iphones for $15, but I haven’t found any certain info on the other carriers. (note: the phone will not be used to UK at all, so some proposed actions from carriers like: “use the phone for 3 months with the carrier and then ask for an unlock” will not work in my case.)
My daughter has bought today a new Torch 9810. She has entered a new device password. After a few hours she tried to enter her password, but she forgot her password.
After a read of some internet groups, the solution is simple, just type 10 times your password and the BB will restart. I know that all data will be removed, but that is no issue.
Unfortunately the BB will not restart after I retype for then times the wrong password After the reset it starting with a White screen, with a sort of document icon. Within this document icon, appear a lock and cross sign, beneath this icon there is a counter with is repeatedly showing from 0 till 100% and then start over again.
I've tried to disconnect the battery for at least 1 minute, Put in a different sim card, let it run for almost one hour, but nothing seems to work.
I have a unlocked Blackberry Tour 9630 that I purchased off ebay. I'm using it with a generic T-mobile internet plan, (someone told me that it would work).
However, whenever I open the browser I would get this error: "Your decivce does not currently have any Browser Configration Service Book entries, Please contact your service provider to enable the Browser on your device".What does this mean, and how can I fix it?
Got an unlocked 9550 (VW) activated but I am not getting emails (have BIS plan). I went to tmobile to change the device (PIN and IMEI) but tmobile says "The information you have provided is not valid for this provider."Also, I can't update the host routing table. It's blank and registering doesn't do anything. APN is set to epc.tmobile.com.
Need some help here please. I have an unlocked/jailbroken Iphone 2G that I've been using basically as an Ipod. I did a reset via the Iphone to erase everything off of it and now it is stuck on a black screen with a pineapple. Itunes does not recognize the phone.
I am attempting to flash a Samsung T819 unlocked Tmobile branded device. I have acquired the updated firmware for the device and am attempting to use Multi-Loader V 5.40 to flash the firmware. I am unable to force this phone into any sort of boot/recovery mode in order to load the firmware, attempted using OPTI FLASH no success. If anyone has any further instructions in order to flash this device on new firmware
I have a complicated situation with deleted files (photos and videos) recovery,
Phone : Nexus 5 Android: M (6.0) BN: (MRA58N) Root/unlock: Unrooted and Unlocked
Some one has deleted all the files in the camera folder in the gallery, i want to restore these deleted files. After hours of digging the internet, i found a lot of applications that doesn't work (almost all of it either require root or require USB Mass storage), and as you know we are only able to connect to the PC using MTP protocol. Rooting the device requires unlocking it which will cause the whole phone to be wiped.
I have two questions:
1) Is there any (REAL) way to recover the deleted files (Images and videos) with the current circumstances (Unrooted, Unlocked, MTP Connection) ?
2) If the answer of question 1 is NO, if i unlocked (and for sure wiped) the phone then rooted it, can i still have the ability to recover these files, i mean how badly the wipping process will affect the internal phone storage?
For Storm2 9550 users...I'm a texter kind of person and the Storm 2 9550 was certainly a mistake purchase as I was mislead by my carrier into thinking it would be a good phone for me because it has WiFi capabilities and the ability to text many people at once. I don't think my carrier realized that I'm not 80 years old, I can text more than 2 characters per second. I need a quick and snappy firmware for texting where my phone won't slow down so much as to only be able to text 1 character every second. Not only that, but a web browser that doesn't take 20 seconds to load [URL] (although I don't use it much anyway as I have a laptop). Seriously, can we get a custom firmware meant for high speed texting?
Recently I've updated my Torch 9860, after which I've found a changed app in my app switcher. When opening the switcher, there is an app called: AlternateApp. The icon has a question mark in in and opening this app freezes the app switcher. I can't find out what this app is referring to, maybe a recently updated app through the app world or there might be some other issue.
There has been an issue while setting a password policy . As per the security policy the minimum password length requirement is 6 . There is an another option to set Required Password Pattern which is cvCn(4 characters).When i try to set a new-password with 4 and 6 my blackberry does not accept any of the policy.Now the user is deleted on the server , still the password prompt is present and not letting me to use my blackberry.how to hard reset my blackberry with out entering the blackberry .
Even though Apple directions suggest I can "recover" my current password, it only permits me to change it to a new one. Then the new one works on one of my Apple devices, such as my iPad, but not my iPhone. Again, I'm given only the option of changing my password. If I try to change it to the existing password, it won't allow that. So now I have a password that works on one device, but not another.
