This will allow you to remotely reset your device password over the internet, so you won't have to Factory Reset and lose all of your data. You will need to have internet connectivity either through your WiFi, or your Android phone carrier's data plan.

You have to go into your Settings and under Security, disable the anti theft lock on your SIM. It may say SIM Lock in settings or Privacy Protection if you use a phone with AVG Security. If it demands a password to disable the SIM lock then the only way to get past this is to factory reset the phone or reset your password with AVG if that is what you were using. To factory reset your phone follow the article linked in the top answer which explains how to factory reset an Intel phone. You do not use codes but instead, you use the manual buttons on your device.

The way to do this is with your Google Account to access the device and then disable the pin in Settings. If you can't do this then you will have to hard reset. If your phone is operating on Lollipop or Marshmallow you will need to install new Stock ROM to the device. You can see more about bypassing the lock in this Youtube Tutorial.

Hi, Good morning, reviewing internet settings for an iTel1400?

I have an itel model 1400 but have failed to set internet on it? When I connect it tells me that {unable to connect review your network settings}. Thanks you

Turn your phone off and then back on to see if that resets your network settings. Make sure that you are not in Airplane Mode also. Go back into Settings if you are still getting the message and under the General menu you will see Network and choose that to manually refresh the network settings.

Your phone is not a dual band which means that it will not work in the US on the towers is trying to connect to. What you can do is get a cheap phone at many Convenience Stores and Walmart. You can connect it for the time you are visiting or use your itel over WiFi to connect and use data for Social Media and making phone calls over WiFi.
