my new nokia lumia 925 has locked itself. This morning I tried to use my phone and it is asking for my password! I haven't even set a password yet! Is there a default password on these phones? I can receive calls but that's all. Please help

  • What kind of keyboard is used to enter the password? Is it just numbers or is there even letters? – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Oct 25 '14 at 22:56

No there default password. Could someone else have set it? Did you buy it from someone?

The only way to access the phone if you can't figure it out is doing a hard reset.

(I'm assuming you're not taking about the Microsoft account but the lockscreen pin)

  • Yes just lock screen. It's a new phone and there has not been any screen etc asking for a password set so I definitely haven't set one. I will take it back to shop. Makes no sense to me,never come across this before. Thanks for your help. – Ian Oct 25 '14 at 22:56
  • You can just do a hard reset using the buttons(just google it). This might save you the trip. – Thomas Oct 25 '14 at 23:50
