Questions and Answers

I just put a second SIM to my phone and on reboot I got this message: "Please enter the Privacy Protection Password to unlock". I recall I have set such a password in settings in Anti-Theft option, but I set a Screen Pattern as a password and its asking for a Pin code which I do not remember doing it neither the password itself! My phone is locked and I cannot use it anymore?

Please assist me to unlock obi SJ1.5



The SIM password is a code and not a pattern. Try the last 4 digits of your phone number. If that does not work then insert the old SIM card in and disable all anti-theft security measures including SIM lock. You can use the steps in the top answer if your phone still will require a password. AVG has created some solutions to the SIM lock.

You must have removed the SIM card because it is locked on the x45. Follow the steps posted on the AVG Security link in the top answer to gain access again. If you never set one up then try the last 4 digits of your telephone number, 0000 or 1234.
