Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

You will need to reset the phone. This will remove all data from it and return it to new but you cannot avoid this

To do the reset do the following please

Volume Down Key + Camera Key + Menu Key
1. Power on the phone and hold the Volume Down Key + Camera Key + Menu Key
2. Ensuring that above keys are being pressed, Press & hold Power button until you see “Formatting” on your screen
3. Release all keys & wait for formatting to be completed
4. Once completed, Phone is like just out of the box
5. Most importantly, your security code is now reset to the
default 12345

Let me know how you go please
