    My boyfriend has put some kind of lock on my phone to where I can only open certain apps and it will not let me get into settings. How can I reset my phone without opening the settings?

    Why would your boyfriend do that ? It's your phone! I'll leave a link to register so you can communicate here , as a guest account you can't.https://forums.androidcentral.com/sh...d.php?t=409154

    Welcome to Android Central! I agree with the above advice. Also, which phone? You can typically access the Recovery Menu by a button press combination, but which combination depends on the phone.

    No one should be taking anything from any one - no matter who it is - therapy 101.

    As mentioned, research the phone for the key press combo to reset the phone - I believe it has to be out there. Then create a pin code for your newly restored device, and don't give the pin code to anyone - not mom, dad, girlfriends, the guy you are dating - Skippy the Squirrel - no one.
