Can you use Android Device Manager from a PC or another smartphone to lock it and unlock it?
Usually around the 8-9 of 10 tries it asks you to sign in with your Google credentials.
I don't know. Would I access that from the Verizon site, HTC site, or where? Thanks.
Android Device Manager allows you to lock your device (already locked) and set up a new password. I tried that on my PC but still can't get it unlocked.
NO. Just keep trying to login to the phone. After 10 tries it will give you the option to reset your PIN with your Google account and password.
Someone else had replied with that same remedy and if that's all it takes, no worries. However, it is tellig me that after 10 unsuccessful tries it will reset my phone back to zero and I lose everything...pictures, emails, texts,etc. Is this true or not...do you know? Thanks.
It's telling me if I am unsuccessful after 10 tries it will reset my phone back to day #1...meaning losing all my pictures, texts, etc. Is this true or not...do you know? Thanks.
That is not the information I have.
If your Google password is correct, it resets your password and unlocks the phone.
i Will do a quick search to verify...
