    I lost my phone. I used the Android Device Manager to lock it with a PASSWORD.

    I found my phone. It only shows the NUMBER keypad and I cannot enter my password to unlock it.

    I'm at a total loss. Any advice is appreciated.

    thanks so much.

    I'm not sure if this is still relevant, but I have found some references to using ADM with Samsung phones need to be unlocked with Samsung's own device manager.

    Thank you so much for replying. Very kind. I do not have a Samsung account bc my phone is prepay. DARN! I sincerely appreciate the reply.

    Did you have a PIN lock on the phone prior to locking it with ADM? You might try that first.

    Occasionally I would set up a lock screen with a 4 digit PIN. I tried that one and numerous others. I reckon I"ll just have to keep failing until the phone resets. This stinks. Thanks for all the help you guys. I'm humbled.
