The Xperia mini pro is a smartphone manufactured by Sony Ericsson. It may seem a bit different than most other phones running the Android operating system as its main feature is that it has a tactile keyboard, however the procedure to reset it if you have forgotten your password is the same as for all other Android versions. Those instructions are available in our guide to recovering your Android Device in case of a lost or forgotten password or pattern.

Sony Xperia E5 SW problem: stopped accepting security code?

1) Security code requested when Android starts: entered, accepted.. 2) Security code requested when Android completes, to enter UI: entered, not accepted.. 3) The code has not been changed.. 4) The problem started 1h ago.. 5) Sony Xperia E5. Sony says: hard reset. However, don't want to lose the data. Didn't manage to read the article because this lovely dialog popped up and covers the article. I have tried: Restarted multiple times.

Chat with Sony support. What else you recommend I did? "details a bit too short" is a weird request. I think it was caused by: Sony SW. The code has not been changed, it is a procedure one can not do by accident.
