All your personal data like contacts, memos, notes, etc. will be erased. Your added apps will be lost also, the only apps will be there after resetting are the per-installed apps that came with the Tab when you first purchased it.

Can't get into an LG tablet. It appears to be a 7 inch model. I tried about 10 different codes that are supposed to be "common codes". Only 5 more attempts available.

I have no pin on an LG tablet. No Google account associated either. I am told I need to reset. I held the power key & down button & got "Recovery trying" or something like that. I did get an attempt to recover, but it said that recovery failed. I once briefly saw a safe mode but it quickly changed before I could do anything. I am attempting this for a friend who buys abandoned cars or whatever. The tablet was in the car.

My Question is too short? How do I unlock my WiFi?

I installed Facebook into my tablet. Facebook wanted me to enter a code which I did and I got into Facebook. The next time I hit Facebook it wanted me to enter the code again but the code didn't work. Then I asked Facebook to send me a new code. No response. So I uninstalled Facebook from my tablet. But now It won't connect me to the internet any more because it says my WiFi is locked. Don't know how to unlock it.

How can I unlock my S3100 ASUS tablet. Model K012(FE170CG)?

All applications in this tablet are locked. Model: K012(FE170CG). I only access billion lotto application because it was given to me dueling lotto promotion. I have tried: I tried to put different pins but non of them is working apart from the one which was given to me by lotto guys but that only takes me to lotto page. I think it was caused by: These guys did not want me to use it for other things yet the one who did this is no where to be seen.
