    Welcome to Android Central!

    Unfortunately the only way to get that off of the phone is to take it to Rent A Center. More than likely they have reported the phone stolen.

    It sounds like the phone was stolen. I would contact the person who sold it to you or contact rent a center.

    Don't let them lie to you as you can in fact remove the rent a center lock

    No one is trying to be deceptive here. The reality is that this lock is typically used for a device from Rent-A-Center that wasn't paid for, or possibly stolen. If it was truly a mistake, then bring it back to Rent-A-Center and ask them to help. We do not encourage trying to hack the phone to get around a legitimate lock function. Thread closed.
