Additional Notes

  • If you are unable to locate the original Google account associated with the phone it will result in the phone being bricked and no longer usable.
  • If you reset your Google Account password and need to do a factory reset, wait 24 hours after changing your password before resetting your phone. For security, you cannot use an account to set up a device after reset if that password changed within 72 hours.
