Kyocera hydro wave

My ex girlfriend locked my phone with the device manager and I don't know the password/code. Ive tried the hard reset but that didn't unlock it. Is there a way that I can tether it to my laptop and get in to it

Warning my phone about to be seized

I was looking at posts in a closed group on Facebook, Dork Side Book Club.

Big beautiful photo supposedly of huge bookstore in Buenos Aires. Supposedly posted by web site twistedsifter.com.

Right after I clicked through the story (it also coincided with the 15% power left warning), I got a message over my phone screen saying I had picked up a virus or something from "adult" sites I visited. I don't remember visiting any.

It threatened to take over my phone. I had heard of this on TV. I panicked until my husband came in and said to power down the phone and remove the battery for a few minutes. Did that and the phone seems to be working.

What do you think? What should I do?

PLEASE SOME ONE HELP!

I purchased a Samsung Galaxy Core Prime about 1 month ago, and letting my children play games on my phone some how a screen lock was created and I was locked out of my phone. With instructions from a Metro PCS agent I was told to factory reset my phone. Now that my phone has been reset, I am unable to use it! The first screen it comes to allows me to select English as my language. I then have to connect to a WiFi network which i have done so on several different networks several different times. After connecting to Wifi there is an EULA message that I have to agree to. Once I agreed, im being asked to log into my GMail account that was linked to the device. Once i signed in, it goes right back to the EULA message. T...

MetroPCS Roaming Data?

I just joined MetroPCS yesterday, and I was told that I would get 2G on Partnet networks. Texting works in roaming just fine, I have not tried to talk yet, but it must work since texting works.

However, I have absolutely no data when I am roaming. I have data roaming switched on, Is there anything I need to do to activate this roaming data?

I live in coverage of MetroPCS service, but occasionally leave town where there is not MetroPCS coverage.

Wanting a T-Mobile phone for Metro PCS service

I am looking into getting the Note 3 on T-mobile to use with my service with Metro PCS. I am aware that it has to be unlocked, but am I suppose to look for anything else before I purchase a phone online (ex. Amazon or Ebay) to ensure I will be able to use it and not have to hassel with returning it. I want to be able to insert my sim card with Metro PCS into the phone and all works like normal. This phone is too expensive to pay up front and it not work.
