Customer Question
I downloaded an update...

I downloaded an update and when I went through the following things it asked for my passcode and etc also My credit card. It didn't like the passcode I had or the other thing and I have a new credit card, I am locked out of my phone.

Technician's Assistant: When were you last able to use your phone?

Before I downloaded the outdate

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a Factory Reset? The Smartphone Expert can walk you through this to ensure you don't lose your photos, contacts and other data.

The only screen that will come up is asking for my passcode which it doesn't like

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Smartphone Expert to know before I connect you?

Just how to unlock my phone and get rid of the update
