Questions and Answers

Can you please help me reset my Alcatel Android Phone (slide type)?

My phone got locked after my cousin's son attempted over three times to enter the wrong digit number unlocking codes. After that, I was asked to sign in with my Google account in order to unlock device.

The fact that your phone is asking for your Google account is good. If you have your Google account information, enter it; your phone will unlock after you enter it, allowing you to remove or change the password to something you can remember. If you don't remember your Google account information, go to this website to try to recover it. If you are unable to retrieve your information, you will have to perform a Factory Reset to unlock your device. This will wipe all of your data from your Alcatel phone; in other words, your data will be deleted to bring your device back to its factory settings. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this VisiHow article. After the reset is complete, be sure to keep your phone away from little kids so you don't get locked out again. Also, make sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the password so you can unlock your phone should it happen again.

iNew V7 Android phone booting problem?

I think I accidentally touched a format data key on my iNew V7 mobile phone. I must have held the volume up-down button while switching it on, as its power button is on the opposite end parallel to the volume up- down button.

I used the key combination, but it sent me to a screen that had an Android lying down with it's stomach open, and below that it says "downloading, do not turn off"?

On the side of my screen it says start, and then my device information. I have tried: I just turned the smartphone on using the volume up and power buttons. I think it was caused by: I don't think its a problem. I just want to know if I'm on the right path, because it does not look like it does on the screen

It is the download mode. To exit it, either press and hold the power button or remove the battery. To enter the factory-reset menu, try changing the volume-up key in the combination (for example, instead, press and hold the volume-down and power buttons or press and hold the volume-down, power, and home buttons from the powered-down state).
