I was using c510 for past 6 months. My network provider is vodafone. Recently I changed to postpaid connection from prepaid keeping the same number for that I got a new SIM. When I inserted the new SIM on switch on itself it is asking for phone lock code.I haven't kept any lock code for my phone till now. And when I searched in the net for the default code i got it as '0000'. But when I enter that it says wrong code.
Then I inserted my old SIM for that it is working but its inactive since I got new one. I checked the phone security settings under settings->general->security->Locks->phone protection->Protection so as to turn off that feature.It was shown 'Automatic' neither On or Off. And when I tried to change that to off its again asking for the lock code. And I am not able to use my phone now.
Like so many people here, i have also forgotten my phone Lock Code. So today i have decided to reset it anyhow and while playing with my phone K850i - A2 phone, db3150, BINGO, i found the way. May be this should work with all platform phones. But still this has to be confirmed by the owner of different platform phones. The solution is- look in your FS in this folder. tpa/preset/default now delete this file- 'security_domain_settings'. That's it. Your Phone Lock Code is reset to 0000.Before deleting you might want to back up that file. Though it is not required. Tested by me.Pls confirm this method by different platform phone users. edit: Just found that by deleting this file, it is not recreated. so there might be some functions which will not be able to use if you delete it. But by activating it, it serves the purpose. asking for passward and all. if you give wrong passward, it will not let you access. Do it at your risk. this means if you forget the passward again, you will not able to retrive it. edit 2 : By flashing the phone this file is recreated and you will have the same passward as you have set after deleting that file. In my opnion, just flash your phone after you use the above mentioned method.
I have a SE Naite which I must say is awesome. Yesterday the phone switched off due to low battery. But when I tried switching it on it is asking for a code. Since its been long I have forgotten it. Is there anyway to retrieve it or reset it? I tried using the XS++(v3.1) tool but it seems that its not able to retrieve any info from phone.
I had purchased a Sony Ericsson Elm (J10i2) mobile last week. I found the mobile to freeze often and so, had to manually remove the battery in order to get it working. So, when I took it to the vendor, the person restored my phone to factory settings. But after this resetting process, all of my Sony Ericsson in built themes like GreenHeart got erased from the mobile except for Flow theme. I am aware that restoring to factory settings restores the phones to it's defaulted features and settings. But how come do the inbuilt themes get erased as well?
I broke my last phone (I didn't really break it the signal inside of it went bust) I had to put up with a brick of a SE anyway I found a better looking one; the problem is I've looked and looked to find how to "unlock" it and have tried setool2lt.exe and selected the W300. I also even held down C and plugged in etc. The only problem is that it doesn't seem to pick it up at all!
I have a sony Ericsson T303, and I don't know the unlock code for the handset. I spoke to SE on the phone and flashed the phone using their update software. They said if this doesn't reset it, I have to send it off to them which will cost me £25. I followed a number of instructions on internet to reset that code using XS++ software. But I don't think my phone is compatible with that, because after it tells me "port opened" it tells me "did not receive 0x5a, continuing.." and then basically everything ends there. Can anyone pleaaaaaaaase save me sending my phone off and spending that money, by telling me a simple way I can get round my handset code? I'm sure that can't be the only solution.
I have a SE Z520a that I want to recycle to a new carrier. My old carrier (AT&T / Cingular) gave me the unlock code which seems to work fine (I see unlocked icons for all five categories NCK, CCK, etc.). Now I would like to unbrand it.Will pushing a firmware update via SEUS be sufficient? It look like the current firmware for this phone is R3J017 while the phone internals say that I am on R3F017. I assume that if I update via SEUS, I will get the latest and greatest.If that is not sufficient, how do I get a generic branding? I know Davinci and some of those will do that, but I would prefer downloading software and doing it myself. I can't afford to brick the phone.
So about a week ago my phone dies and I put it on the charger... like 60 secs later I try and start it back up. I was also working on my laptop and used one hand to start the device. Once it booted back up it was factory reset. Asking me to set up my phone... I'll my pics and music were gone.
I may have been pressing the vol up or down while holding the power button because I was using one hand and I can see how easy that can happen but I doubt I went through all the steps to factory reset w/o knowing it.
I purchased a brand new LG V10 on EBay. I received the phone today, the phone won't perform a factory reset. Every time I try to factory reset the phone, the phone reboot and I receive the following message:
My boss has a GS5 and yesterday evening he was on his phone and all of a sudden it turned off. He didn't know what was going on but said it took an hour to boot back up. When it finally came back on it had done a factory reset and cleared his micro SD card. .
Im using nova launcher right now, and im getting sick of it. Im going to give sense a try, is there a way to reset my phone like a factory restore but without losing all of my pictures and contacts? I dont need any of the apps to stay as i can re download any of the ones i need. I assume if i just use some sort of backup service it will keep everything and thats not really what im looking for.
So my LG G3 is almost a year old and recently it had an issue which started about a week ago, where it kept restarting every time I opened Snapchat. This gradually increased over time to the point where I got so frustrated I ended up uninstalling the app. However, my phone continued to restart which lead to me realizing that Snapchat wasn't the actual cause of the problem. So I did some research and came across different possible solutions but unfortunately none of them worked :/ One post I found suggested it might be the battery but I'm still not sure. Earlier today my phone restarted but on a loop and I ended up factory resetting it, which I hoped would solve the issue.
My brother woke up this evening to find his phone stuck on the android loading screen saying "erasing". He didn't do anything, it did this on its own. Once it had finished, his phone had factory reset itself and he lost everything that wasn't backed up.
