    Welcome to Android Central! What happened? Did you forget the PIN? Did you get it wrong too many times? If you get it wrong too many times, it usually asks you for your Google credentials--did you get that wrong, too?

    There's an additional code (that only O2 or the manufacturer can provide) that will reset the counter. The odds of getting it aren't that great, though, unless you know an independent dealer who likes you enough to try.
