I won't be able to help, but maybe others will if you at least tell us what phone it is.

Major,

Let's be hypothetical.

Just imagine if you had lost your phone, and you then saw someone had posted on a forum, asking how to bypass the security password, on the same model phone that you had lost.

From another viewpoint- let's be psychoanalytical-do you join a hifi forum,post normal stuff and 15 months later try to find out how to unlock a potentially stolen phone.

i promise it's not potentially a stolen phone, if it was stolen why would i steal a nokia lumia 720 i'd wait a while and swipe a brand new shiny Sony xperia Z2. Blum 3   My nokia Lumia was a gift, i may now have a good reason to get myself something better but would like to know how to check my messages as i have 3 plus 2 calls and i can't get into them. so frustrating. Every time i get it wong the wait to try again keeps increasing. I have Now Gave up trying.

I've just googled the phone, and I see what you mean.

It won't be on my list of phones to buy.

AFAICT, the only way is to reset your phone.  Do you have a backup?

You misunderstand me- I was on your side."Potentially stolen " was referring to the implications in the previous post about "lost a phone".
