    Hello I'm a new member so go easy on me.
    Just bought a brand new sim free m8 for my dad.
    I have put an SD card in and waiting for new sim. I decided to power it up for the first time without a sim so that I could get it set up with settings and apps etc. When it turned on I got an unfamiliar screen got scared and turned it back off just looking for advice as to if this is normal and what option I should select I will upload the picture of the screen hopefully upload works. Thanks in advance for any advice

    That's a normal screen but it won't show up every time you turn it on. In your case seeing where you bought a brand ne device with no apps on it choosing the Factory reset option will do no harm and bring you back tothe regular statup screen. I'm still looking for a pin to slide out my SIM card and turn the device on without it to replicate what happened to you. Usually to get to this screen to do a Factory Reset you hold the volume down keys and the power key at the same time. Now where's that little pin at when you need it???....

    Thanks for that. Perhaps I knocked the volume down key when I switched it on... I decided to power it up again yesterday as it seemed this thread was pretty dead and it started up as you would expect. Your reply is appreciated though makes sense about the factory reset won't be doing that now tho. Please stop looking for the little pin

    I left it in my jewelry box at home. The pin is safe. :)
