Your phone is SIM locked because you swapped the SIM card without disabling the SIM lock within your security settings. Put the original SIM back in. It needs to be active still for you to disable the SIM lock or set up a password on the SIM lock that you will remember.

How do I change from password login to PIN log in Windows8?

I made too many wrong attempts for PIN login and login screen referred me to the password login screen. The problem is I have forgotten my password, so I need to switch back to PIN login because I know the pin. Thank you. I have tried: I have tried using Ctrl+Alt+Del, but it can not switch me back to pin login. I think it was caused by: Entering multiple wrong PIN continuously

Try unplugging and removing the battery if you are on a laptop. You should be able to gain access using the Device Administer control panel on the PC. If this fails, contact Microsoft Support.

Hi, mister, need your help please?

I imported images from her Xperia M dual to her laptop. After doing so she saw that her phone had a screen lock, which she didn't do before. What is troubling her, is she doesn't know the password and doesn't want to reset her phone because she needs some files in it. What to do? please help, thanks. I want to help her bypass the screen lock, but how? It seems like her phone is not connected to her Gmail account. I have tried: Restarting the phone.. tried many pins but no security questions popped. I think it was caused by: a virus?

You should hard reset the phone. If you suspect a virus, this will remove the virus. She will lose all her data and images but the phone could get further corrupted if you do not hard reset and remove whatever introduced the virus in the first place.
