    I bought a phone ๐Ÿ“ฑ from some one and when I got it they still had their lock screen passcode on it. Now I can't get a hold of them to ask what it is. I paid $200 for this phone ๐Ÿ“ฑ and can't even use it. How can I bypass the lockscreen?

    You could try inputting an invalid pw 15 times, and hope that they had they phone set to factory reset itself after so many invalid attempts. Or, if you stole it, give it back.

    The lockscreen code is there to prevent someone from doing what you're trying to do.

    I legit bought the phone ๐Ÿ“ฑ off ๐Ÿ“ด Facebook marketplace and now can't get the lady to answer any messages. As of right now I spent $200 on a paperweight!!
    And I tried the incorrect password thing already.

    Unfortunately it sounds like she possibly sold you a stolen phone or is just bad at answering emails. I am not familiar with Facebook Marketplace do they have any buyer protection?

    Or the person that sold it just didn't know how to properly sell a phone. Lesson learned, ALWAYS try to set up the device in the presence of the seller. This also ensures that if it's locked by FRP (your next obstacle if you can get the phone to wipe) you can get the seller to properly reset the device so you can use it.

    That's the phrase I use too. If there were some easy way to solve your problem, the password wouldn't be very secure, would it? All you can do is contact Facebook and see if they can help you get to the seller.
