    Hey everyone. I purchased this phone from a guy on letgo. He failed to mention that he couldn't remember his Google information. So now I am stuck at the Google log in screen with account that was previously synced with this phone. I have no access to a pc. I have tried most of the YouTube videos. I have even managed to put my Google account onto the phone but when I try to log in it says failed to login due to recent password change please try again in 24 hours. Yea well that doesn't work either and Google says my account is synced with the phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, you may have to return the phone to that guy... No other way, as far as I know...

    Yeh, Google account factory reset protection, it's really there to try to make make stolen phones much more difficult, or impossible to fence and use. So no way around it AFAIK.

    Return it to the guy and get your money back I think.

    I have tried to contact him through the website I purchase it from and also his cell number but he either blocked me or is ignoring me. Thanks for the input

    Doesn't that site have something to report him? (Use a different number to call him... ;))

    I did. Plus I also commented on everything he is also selling messaged him repeatedly. I'm still calling him 9,10 times a day and getting nothing. It was only 75 dollars but it sucks cause I wanted the s7. It is my fault so I will have to accept the outcome

    Maybe he is sleeping? If he sees your comments, then he will probably reply. There's still hope, don't give up!

    There's no way that man is sleeping that much. But good thought and I won't till I get inside the darn thing

    Hey fellas, sorry to stop this, but FRP is there for a reason and any discussion of bypassing it is against forum policy. Even if it is possible to get around it, discussing it in an open forum is far to dangerous to risk getting out to the people who would abuse it.

    While it's terrible that you've got a troublesome situation, you should look at different avenues of recourse. Since contacting the seller isn't working out, if you paid with a credit card or paypal, how about contacting them because you got something different than what was advertised.

    I'm closing this thread to prevent it going any further. If you have any objections, please send me a PM.
