    Go to Lockscreen in Settings. You'll have to enter your PIN. Then choose Swipe.

    (If you can't unlock the phone, there's nothing you can do - it's a paper weight.)

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you using the phone with a work account? If so, they might have a security protocol that requires the phone to use a PIN or password.
