First, put the old SIM back in the phone and disable all locks. The old SIM may allow you to do this so that you can transfer the new SIM. Second, you can reset your anti-theft password through AVG For Android. They list several ways including AVG Mobilation and resetting your password.

Factory resetting your SIM locked phone will change nothing. Use the old SIM to turn off the SIM lock. If you set up a password differently than your normal lock screen pinlock then the SIM lock password will be different. You will have to follow the steps posted in the top answer to get your new SIM to work on your phone.

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.

My infinix hot note x551-main-v1.0-w-vlg Android phone is locked and asking me to enter my privacy password. I have forgotten the password. I tried using Google smart passwords save but the password is not listed. Can you please advise me as to how to unlock my phone?

My phone is infinix hot note X551. I have forgotten the privacy password I used. I tried all my passwords listed on Google smart lock but I still could not open the screen. My passwords are alphanumeric but the keypad only allows numbers. I am able to receive calls but I cannot make calls. I have tried: I have tried keying in several of my saved passwords. I also switched the phone on and off severally in addition to removing the SIM cards and putting them back without any success. I think it was caused by: I actually attempted recharging my internet modem's data by replacing its SIM card with my phone's SIM card. Anti theft messages were sent to all the phone numbers I selected.
