    The tablet does not have a sim card. It's just a password on the tablet that happens to be a number p/word instead of a pattern.

Do you mean that the PIN of the SIM card is locked?

The PIN is needed to access the SIM card.
If you remove the SIM card the tablet will not ask for a PIN.
You do not need to change anything in the tablet.
(If you would insert your SIM card in a phone, the same would happen when you launch the phone.)

I hope this helps.

How to Factory Reset Your Android Phone or Tablet When It Wont Boot

When ca i get somebody to answer me about my surface2


Since the release of the latest Surface revs, problems are continuing to be reported where the Surface will boot into a screen that requests the BitLocker Recovery Key before it can continue. This issue was also reported with the first revision of Surface devices, however, it was not as widely reported as it is now.
This result can be caused by a wide range of things such as corrupted drivers or Windows Updates not able to install successfully. Whatever the reason, you'd like to be able to get past the BitLocker Recovery Key request screen, but have no idea how to locate this extremely long number.
Luckily, Microsoft stores this number for you in the Cloud. Using a working computer connected to the Internet, just jump out to the following link and ensure you are logged in with your Microsoft account.
https://skydrive.live.com/recoverykey
When you access this link, you'll something similar to below, except yours will contain the actual Key ID and abnormally long Recovery Key number.


The BitLocker Recovery Key is intended to add an additional level of security, ensuring that only the authorized owner of the Surface can unlock the device and restore access. Unfortunately, if you can't find your key, or your key does not display on the Microsoft account page, you'll need to restore the Surface to factory default settings, i.e., start over.

Why my tablet wont go to the home page


Do you mean it won't go to the "home screen" (past the android guy)? If yes then try to reset it (if a tiny hole on the back exists with "reset" marked, insert a tiny pin and push, so that it restores to factory default settings).

Sent incorrect model no. before. my daughter has set a pin no. password on her tablet in error. She doesn;t know what it is so now we can't access tablet. We have pressed reset button on back but no change...


Isn't this the same problem as this one?
http://www.fixya.com/support/t24390784-pin_no_set_in_error_tablet_now_access

The tablet has no PIN. It is the SIM card for 3G that needs a PIN to access the 3G service.
When you remove the SIM card, the tablet will work perfectly without asking a PIN.

I hope this helps.
