I bought a new phone and I accidentally put a password in it that I don't remember, now its locked?
I bought a brand new phone from Metro and they tried to reset it and its not working, they have me to cut the phone off, turn it back on, then scroll down and go to reset. I did all that and its locked and it won't unlock and they can't help me. I don't know what to do with my phone, I just bought it. I have tried: Well I called them, they told me to turn it off, turn it on, hold it and it should work, it should unlock and it did not and now they are telling me they saw me and can help me, I would have to buy a new phone. I think it was caused by: The problem was I just bought the phone and I was trying to work it somehow, I accidentally put in a password that I don't remember what it was, and it locked up and now they can't do anything and they keep resetting it but they told me I would have to have a password which I don't know.
Apparently, you need to reach the recovery menu and wipe data off your smartphone to remove the set password. Turning the device on and off will not remove it. So, power down your smartphone and follow the instructions in this tutorial, section "Factory Reset Android Devices Not Booting Normally".
