This great VisiHow article is dedicated to unlocking an Android phone to which you forgot the unlock password. If you have found someone's iPhone 5, you will need to return it. The owner likely used the Find My iPhone service to disable the phone so nobody could use it since it is their phone. If the phone does not show any message to help you find the owner and return their phone to them, you should take the phone to your local police station so they can track down the owner.

I did what it said I held down the power and volume key, and I came to the recovery page, I went down to the Factory Reset option I tried to press the power button that did not do anything so I hit the home button it took me to the list of no's and right in the middle there was the option to Factory Reset I went to it and pressed the home button again and it said confirm password but that is the whole reason I was trying to Factory Reset was because I had forgotten my pin number and my WiFi was off?

How do I Factory Reset without having to confirm my password. I am using a Samsung 5.0 mp3 player.

Unlocking my phone with SDK/ADB, I do not remember the password or have internet connection?

So I have an old Android phone I used to use and forgot the password (it is not connected to the internet) it has a password unlock, it is a droid Motorola bionic, I called the company about it and they said there is nothing I can do. I know for a fact that there is, I want my pictures off this phone so that I can finally toss it.

I set a password on my phone a day ago, and it was working just fine, but now that I wanted to unlock my phone it just wouldn't work, even though I am 100% positive this is the right password?

My phone is a Galaxy Note4, and apparently, in the Android version I have there is no such thing as a "forgotten password" link to access to the Google account and change the password. I also tried to log in my Google account from another device to change the password, but since there is already one set it just wouldn't work (this service is for stolen phones, and you can whether ring it, erase all the data, or set a password if there isn't any already). How can I proceed ? Thank you
