Insert the former SIM back into the phone and go into Settings. Under Security, you can disable the SIM lock. Then insert the new SIM and you should be fine. If you are still not able to use the SIM then contact your cell carrier provider and request assistance or take the phone to a flagship store for the carrier and request they help you set up the new SIM.

Because your anti-theft was active, when you switched SIM cards it triggered the security features. The easiest way to overcome this is to use your former SIM card to disable the anti-theft. Since you set it up, you should try digits corresponding with your life like your birthday or address. The last four digits of your phone number is also a popular code to use.

AVG Support lists how to unlock the phone with their mobilation feature. It is likely the Sony device had AVG as the security provider. This will allow you to unlock the phone remotely. If you still can't bypass the Privacy Protection then you will have to use ADB tools to unlock your USB first before you can install firmware for the Sony Xperia z5.

Remove Privacy Protection in colors e20 phone, how to open

You will probably have to install new firmware for the Colors e20. Try first to put in 000000 or 123456 for the password if you never set one. The phone also might have the last four digits of your phone number if it was set up that way in the store where you purchased the phone. You could try first to use the AVG Mobilation since that may have been your Lollipop 5.1 anti-theft provider.

MY PHONE IS SAYING I SHOULD ENTER THE PRIVACY PROTECTION PASSWORD ITS Samsung S 6?

ENTER PRIVACY PROTECTION PASSWORD

The Privacy Protection password is 6 digits so for instance 121777 which is birthdate by date, month and year. Most use their birthdate or a combination of the last 4 digits of their phone number and their birth year or age at the time they set up the phone. Perhaps this will jog your memory. Most Samsung Galaxy S6 phones were preloaded with Lookout Security. You can reset the password here through Lookout on their website. Use your email that you linked to the phone and Samsung account if you have more that one email.

Same I need the privacy protection password? My phone is Karbonn and I put in an old SIM and took it out then put on my new SIM and that is when she said ppp?

Insert the old SIM and disable the SIM lock. Try your birthdate for the pin or 123456 if you still can't disable the SIM lock Privacy Protection. You can also bring it to your cell phone carrier and request assistance in swapping out SIM cards. Your final option is to install new firmware on the Karbonn but this means you will lose all data and if your USB is locked that also may be an issue.
