Hello I have forgotten my password so cannot unlock my hand set what to do


Hello there....

I think you can only do a Hard Reset to your Omnia.

But keep in mind that by doing a Hard Reset, all your data and installed third party application will be erased.

- Hard Reset: Power cycle your handset and erase all data, rollback your device to default state (when you got it first time from the store/factory).

How To:
- Hard Reset:
1) Go to Start Menu >> Settings >> System >> Hard Reset >> Clear Memory >> and follow instruction.
2) or other way is: handset in power off state, push small Reset button near the power button while also pressing End & Call button simultaneously and then follow instruction appears on the screen.


Hope that helps.... :D
