Insert the old SIM and turn off the SIM Lock. The card will need to be active, though. If you can't activate the old SIM then try using AVG Mobilation. Your phone may have had AVG pre-installed.

Rebooting the phone will not work. You will need to put in the old SIM and turn off the Privacy Protection first. Try the AVG Mobilation because it is possible this was what was on your Lenovo previously.

Use your old SIM and go into settings and disable the anti-theft settings. If you are using a SIM from a new carrier the phone would need to be unlocked from the previous carrier for the SIM to work, but if you are using your current carrier then bring the phone to a flagship store and request that they set it up for you. Some carriers have master codes for situations like this.

Privacy protection password is needed but I don't know it. I rebooted it already but nothing happened. Any other way?

Please help. Can't use the phone.

Use the AVG Mobilation in the top answer first. If this fails then try the old SIM to disable the anti theft by setting up a trusted administrator such as your spouse or friend. Insert the new SIM and you can request the code be sent to the administrator. This does not work on all phones but your phone may have this option.
