I note that you have gone 12 years without a new serious diagnosis. Keep it up!
Below is a post that I entered regarding my early version Windows Venue Pro smartphone. Thanks for following up.
I haven't used the phone for several years, no longer have a SIM, don't know the password. I want to use the phone overseas, but I need to be able to get around the password, or to do a factory reset However, factory reset seems to require that I get into the phone o/s first.
Can anyone help me to reset without being able to get into the phone?
Can anyone help me to get around the forgotten password?
Since you mentioned that it is a Windows system, I would first try resetting my Microsoft Password, INSTRUCTIONS HERE.
Also try reading THIS ARTICLE. If this does not work, let me know and I'll see if I can find someone that can help.
Thank you, Rick, but nope. The phone only offers a numeric keypad for password entry, which would be consistent with my not having used a Windows login.
The second link really got my hopes up, but, although I tried multiple times with different configurations of finger and several sprained wrists, the phone just starts up.
Try looking at the video below.
If the above video does not work, maybe the second video below you can see better.
