Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Is your cell phone configured to a Google account? If so, then doing a recovery of your Google email account's password, or a reset of it, patiently and carefully, may be able to get you access to your cell phone again.

But tell me: when does it prompt for a password? and what words/text accompany the prompt?

Customer: replied 12 months ago.
it is Google. It prompts for a password ***** a number pad.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 12 months ago.

Does it prompt for a PASSWORD ?

Or perhaps a PIN, or a PUK ?

The number pad hints that it might not be a regular password.

How did this come about? what were you doing with the phone just when it first prompted for this (password/PIN/etc.) ?

Prompts for a Pin, I'm sorry for using the term password. I have my phone charging. I tried everything and wore down the battery earlier in the PM.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 12 months ago.

OK, I see.

Do you know the PIN in question?

How did the problem actually start? this is an important point, which is why I'm asking about it. A password/PIN/whatever is prompted for because something, some event, came to pass.

Well, that is my home number. I was afraid because of the low battery and the lock. Cell phone is(###) ###-#### I may have accidentally hit the lock icon.
