    My screen was replaced and now it's locked for over 700000 minutes. I don't know how to reset this. How do I fix this. Everytime I restart the phone the time resets to its original 712102 minutes. Please help.

    Yeah... That's like 494 1/2 days.

    It may be that the repair simulated wrong pin tries as the connectors were put in place...

    Anyhow, the only way to avoid waiting the 494.5 days is to do a hard reset. Since we don't know what phone you have, try a web search for "<phone model name> Hard Reset" and follow the instructions. You will loose all data, but you'll be back in your phone.

    may the guy who replaced your screen has tried to open the lock by entering wrong pin many times

    It can also be a glitch I think sometimes happens.
    I've seen it happen to iOS devices too.

    yah, you normally want to remove enterprise exchange and unpin your phones when they are sent out for repair.
