    On Windows 10 Mobile there is a trick: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...any-times.html


    For Windows Phone 8.1 and lower:

    Sometimes this is a glitch.

    Often times it is from too many invalid PIN attempts.

    Regardless, the solution is the same. Hard Reset.

    Power off the phone > hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down

    Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down

    You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery. You do loose data, but get your phone back. Sign into your Microsoft Account and restore your backup during the set up.

    make sure your SIM is seated right.

    last resort, erase your device and start fresh.

    Are you on 8.1 or 10?

    You used WDRT and it is still saying wait for unlock?

    That is not really possible. WDRT resets the phone to fresh out of the box and you have to do setup. There is no PIN for it to insist upon...

    Any more details you can share, like how this happened, error messages from the WDRT, anything???
