Questions and Answers

How do I reset my Samsung GT5300 when it is at the user name and password screen?

Is there a code that can get me past that page where Google asks me for my Google account and password.

Hard-resetting will lead you to the same protection screen. You need to enter the original Google user name and password to bypass it. Please use the Google Recovery Web page to recover your original user name and password. This is, most likely, your only chance to make the smartphone usable.

If the original account is unavailable (for example, the recovery e-mail and phone number are not available or there is no way to contact the seller), then you can try bypassing the protection. Otherwise, you will have a nonfunctional device. The problem with bypassing protection with Samsung GT5300 is that it is unlikely that the on-the-go (OTG) cable is supported for that model. However, if you want to give it a try, then please do. First, clean the device.
