When it asks you for a password upon making calls. Normally, your account is not yet been activated from your network carriers system or data base. This is for them to prepare your phone number to be ready to be use, this normally happens if you have a postpaid plan from a network carrier.

Upon receive of the phone and when you inserted the SIM card, give it at least 24 hours for the activation. However, to expedite this process you can simply contact your network provider for them to assist you on this to have the phone registered to their system and start using it without being asked for a password.
