How do I get a forgotten call barring password?

I can't seem to remember my phone barring password.


Unfortunately, the only way to recover your phone barring password on your device is to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your phone's data to bring it back to its factory settings, thereby deleting the forgotten phone barring password. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow guide. Once the reset is complete, you will be able to set a new phone barring password on your Android phone. When you do, be sure to write it down on a piece of paper so you can refer to it in the future in case you forget it again. In addition, be sure to choose a password that's easy to remember so you are very unlikely to forget it in the first place.

I have a child Orbo tablet with Android OS. the password has been forgotten and I am unable to reset the device?

I have a child Orbo tablet with Android OS. the password has been forgotten and I am unable to reset the device


You can hard reset the Orbo tablet by holding down Volume Up and Power buttons until the Recovery Menu appears. If you have the Orbo Jr. this is how you get to the reset menu. Otherwise, attempt the password and then use the Google account associated with the device. To get to this option, you will click Forgot Password.

The question is for the pattern lock for icons z2 mini pad?

I forgot the pattern lock and I forgot the user name and password and no internet connection on the pad. The question is how can I unlock the pattern


For the Icons Z2, you will need to connect to the PC and install a new firmware. This will be the only way to factory reset the tablet and bypass the pattern lock. You do not have an internet connection so using Google as a bypass will not work.

How can I disable barring on my wireless landline phone?

In my landline phone's, all calls incoming and outgoing were barred, and I don't have the password

Contact your landline provider. You could try removing the battery to see if this disables the call barring but that is dependent on the type of landline wireless phone you have. Usually, the call barring is a bonus feature of the landline carrier. They should be able to disable it for you from within their system.

Why is SIM saying some calls are barred?

If I call someone it is appearing some calls are barred. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: Nothing

Go into your phone settings menu to Calls. Then disable call barring if it is checked off as enabled. If this is not the case, you may be restricted from the phone company. Other reasons that this would appear is that they system is down for the carrier, spotty reception, or faulty SIM.

I bought a new phone from other country and when I insert my SIM it shows emergency calls only and when I check settings of calls it is asking call barring password which I don't know?

How to remove call barring password and active outgoing calls. I have tried: Tried other password. I think it was caused by: The phone is from another country

The phone needs to be unlocked and also able to operate on the frequency radio bands of the new country. If your phone was not unlocked from the carrier previously, no SIM that is not theirs will work. If your phone operates on CDMA and not GSM then it will not work in most countries. Check your More Networks menu to see what radio frequencies the phone uses. Then see if you can set up the APN settings for the new SIM you have installed.
