Messed up setting up security code, now it doesn't work need to reset

Was trying to set up security code on my lg 8700 and I think I messed up how I put it in because it isn't excepting the password I put in. Now I can't lock my phone anymore. Is there a way to reset it back to default or do I have to go to telus to have them do it?

Apple can help you to reset your login, when you enter the correct password that belongs to your Apple ID. It will be partially on the screen. If you really messed up, setting up security, and lost unlock code and your Apple ID password. Only Apple can help. For that you have to take idevice, invoice and prove of your identity (Passport) to the Apple store and hope they will unlock your device. With iOS7 Apple made a very good security system. And while setting up the iPhone and the security, you are warned several times what to do to make sure you and only you could enter the system. Whatever you is told there is no bypass for the Apple security system.Be aware if Apple does reset your device, all data now on the device will be lost.
Apps can be retrieved from the cloud.

Want to reset all settings

Follow the instruction given below:
Press "Home" > Settings >Privacy >Factory Data Reset

Read the message stating the types of data that will be deleted, then tap Reset Phone.

If you are certain that you would like to restore all factory settings, tap erase everything. Your phone will reset to the factory settings.

You can also use the method:

  1. Select Main Menu from the Home screen

  3. Scroll to and Select Phone Settings
  4. Scroll to and Select Reset Settings
  5. Tap Master Reset
  6. Tap Yes to confirm
  7. Enter the device's security code, then tap OK. NOTE: The default security code is 0000

I called LG. The women there told me to do this.

Security (unlock code is usually the last 4 digits of your phone number unless you changed it)
Reset Defaults

Hit ok . . . you will have to set everything up again. . .

I took 15 pictures in a row and everything was fine.

Now if it acts up again after I reset my prefrences I will be pissed . . .

Cannot unlock my LG SHINE 8700

You could try entering random codes until it asks for a PUK code, if it doesnt ask for one already.
Now call you carriers help line and ask the person for a PUK code (You should have paper and a writing utensil ready for this)
Input the codes you given and that should reset the security code and you can use the phone normally.

Ipod touch won't connect even after disabling security

Whenever yo connect a new wireless device to your exhisting network, you have to do 2 things, before it will work, aside fron the settings on the phone itself, you need to set the ecryption code and key to the same as the rest of your wireless devices
The key is goning to say wep1 or wep2, and the key can be anything 10 digits or combination there of as long as they are all the same. If you really messed it up, call apple and they will help you for free. My friend did it one day when he messed his up and I was not around. He was on the phone for 45 minutes with them and they were nice as can be to him. Also you can start fresh, by resitting the router "push the little reset button, then go to the wireless portion of the routers setup page,, and set all of your wireless devices to the same key and code type. There are also different channels that you can select like channel 6, on the router. Go slow and you will get it, it's not that hard, just remember to rate me if I helped you, thanks
