Questions and Answers

I have a lost or stolen Galaxy Note3?

I need to remotely lock the phone.

If your phone had its GPS turned on before you lost it, you can go to this website to remotely lock or wipe it. You can also track it. Unfortunately, if you didn't turn on the GPS before you lost it, or if somebody found your phone and turned it off, you won't be able to remotely lock the phone or track it.

Hi, is it possible to turn ON a Note3 remotely?

It was lost and turned itself OFF. We need a couple of seconds to get the location fix.

Unfortunately, there is no way to turn on your Note2 remotely. You can wipe the data from the Google Device Manager and when the phone is turned back on that will happen. You only want to do this if you suspect the phone was stolen though and if you lock the phone there will be a three day suspension to use the phone.

I have lost my very new Galaxy Note3 before even turning ON the phone?

I have lost the phone before setting up any information needed actually I didn't turn it ON yet, Is there a way to find its location or to block it as I still have the box empty

Not if it was not registered with your Google Account first. Unfortunately, you will have to wait to see if someone returns the phone and trace back your steps so that hopefully you find it. If you get a replacement set it up with your Google Account from within the store immediately after purchase.

How to remotely wipe/delete all the data in a Samsung Galaxy Note3?

The phone is stolen/snatched earlier. It has a lot of personal information and precious pictures. The problem is I do not have the IMEI number.

You do not need the IMEI number with Google Device Manager. You can log in now if your Google Account was set up on the Note3 and wipe and lock the phone remotely. You also can send it to ring which sometimes will spook the thief out. If the GPS was not enabled though you will not be able to find the phone and if it was stolen it has probably already been hard reset and ready for sale.

More questions and answers

I lost my Samsung Note3, this is the second one, is there a way that you could help me to trace them?

I am not sure as to whether I did register with the Samsung security features.

Samsung Find My Mobile can help you possibly locate the devices as well as Google Device Manager. If your GPS was enabled it would be easier but you can at least wipe out the data on the phone from these two applications. Both will work with your phone if you have a Google Account plus the Samsung Security features.

If you registered the phone with Samsung then you can use Find My Mobile with Samsung otherwise you can log into Google Device Manager and lock and wipe your phone remotely as long as it is still on and the GPS is enabled you may also be able to find the phone through these recovery programs.

Lost my Note3 mobile and it is turned off?

I have lost my phone and its now switched off, how can I find that, please help me

Because the phone is turned off, the only way you can find it is by tracing back your steps. If you lost it on the street then go into the businesses and ask if someone brought in a phone. You should also contact your local law enforcement to see if it was returned and your local cell service provider location. Someone may have been nice enough to turn the phone in.

My Samsung Note3 Google account is failing to login?

My phone is locked with a Google account and every time I try to unlock it, it writes (processing failed)?

Try a soft reset on the phone. If this does not work then perform a hard reset. The soft reset should work though and remove the battery for 30 seconds.
