    Now you have your account number you can get your pin






    1. Step 1

      The
      PIN number consists of numbers and most of the time it is 6 digits
      number. If you remember what numbers you used, try to rearrange them,
      if you are using a date, makes it 6 digits and use zeros when needed.
      For example, for 'March 9 2001', try '030901'.




    2. Step 2

      Think
      of any number you may use as PIN number such as the 6 digits of your
      social security number. Try your birth day, your kids birth days or any
      other date important for you.




    3. Step 3

      The
      first time you created your PIN number was during the activation
      process, search for a piece of paper you might write activation details
      on it.




    4. Step 4

      Go
      to your provider web site put your phone number and click on 'forget my
      PIN number', you will be requested to answer a secret question. The
      secret question is a back up of your PIN number, you selected the
      question and provided the answer during the activation process. The PIN
      number will be sent to your email address or your phone.




    5. Step 5

      Call provider customer services, and ask them to send to you the PIN
      number, you need to answer the secret question in order to receive your
      PIN number.

    To enhance account
    protection, Sprint requires you to secure your account with a 6- to
    10-digit personal identification number (PIN).

    You'll need your PIN or the answer to your security
    question to access your account when calling us or visiting a Sprint
    retail store. This will better ensure that no one else can access your
    account without your authorization.

    You'll also need your PIN the first time you register
    your account online at Sprint.com - although you won't need it to sign
    on to your account once you've registered. Instead, you will use your
    Sprint.com username and password.

    You can easily view and modify your PIN by signing on to sprint.com and going to Settings and Passwords.

    If you forget your PIN, you can retrieve it in several ways:


    When you establish your PIN, you must select a
    security question and provide your own answer to it. If you forget your
    PIN, you can answer your security question to retrieve it.

    You can have your PIN or a PIN retrieval code
    sent to you via email, text message or regular mail. These preferences
    can be established in the Settings and Passwords area of sprint.com, or
    by contacting Sprint Customer Care.


    Remember to keep your PIN private. If you feel
    someone has gained access to your PIN without your authorization,
    change it immediately.

How do I unlock screen pattern if I forgot my pattern on Asus zenfone 4


Hi Sheena

If you forget your pattern:
1. After you fail to unlock the screen in pattern for 5 times (4 dots at least), there will be a text sign of "Forgot Pattern?" appeared on the lower-right of the screen.
2. Tap "Forgot Pattern?" and then enter your Google account and password saved in this phone to disable pattern lock.Note: If you do not log in your Google account or the device is not connected to internet before the phone is locked, you will need to perform factory data reset in DROIDBOOT mode to solve this problem.

If you forget your PIN or password:
1. To reset your PIN or password, you need to in advance log in your Google account in your device and have your phone connected to Internet as well as Location function enabled.
2. Then, visit website below: https://google.com/android/devicemanager
3. Choose your device that you want to reset PIN. After your device is located, tap "Lock" in the wondow and reset your PIN.

How do I talk to a boost mobile representative without my pin code to the account


if you never changed it it should be the last 4 digits of the phone number. if you changed it then they should just ask you other confirming information. people do forget and there must be other info only the account holder could answer. call and tell them you forgot the pin and they should ask for personal info regarding the account.
hope this helps
