    Took my Lumia 535 out of my pocket earlier, only to be greeted with "This device has been locked for security reasons. Connect your device to a power source for at least two hours and try again."

    I thought that's strange, but I did exactly that and put the phone on charge for about 4 hours. I tried unlocking the phone using my PIN but I still had the message. I then rebooted the device about 5 times and every time I was still getting the same message.

    This is getting ridiculous now and I currently don't have a usable phone. Any solutions?

    Have you people tried a hard reset using the key combo?
    I don't recall it though.

    But you'll probably have to revert the phone using the WPRT and upgrade again.

    Just happened to me too. Locking via Find My Phone website fixed it.
