Just bought one from my friend. He got it from his friend that changed carriers...he wanted to get it unlocked and use it on tmobile but sold it to me instead. Put my sim in and it came up with an error. I thought it was the sim but mine is ok..seems that someone passworded it with something other than the default 1234 . I tried a hard reset and soft and its still looking for the password. I'm waiting for him to get back to me but does anyone know another way around this...seems to me there has to be some way around it in case people forget.
power the phone off by removing the battery, then re-power the phone holding down the navigator key. The phone will ask to press 1 or any key to skip. (press 1). Then press yes on resetting the phone. The phone will return to it's factory settings.
