hi all,

I found that my Window mobile 10 build 10586.318 phone will totally clock after 3 times I input the password wrong, and the phone stupidly require me to charge the phone for 2 hours and reboot to phone to continue.

how can I fix that so that no matter how many time I input password wrong it don't lock my phone totally ?

have you considered entering a pin instead of using the password?

no a pin is 4 or 6 digits that replace the complex password. Also did you not see the challenge screen after entering the wrong password 2x ?

hi,

from that page this is also what I want:

Additionally, if for any reason you get locked out of your phone, you can also set a 6-digit PIN remotely to unlock the device without having to wait hours before trying again.

Open in new window


but this is not what I am asking. anyway to change the threshold of the phone locking.

the pin also involve to me turn on my PC and it take and waste time as I just turn it on for 1-2 minutes.
