    You can't, that is the point. Even device recovery tool will not work, as it checks the reset protection status before flashing the firmware. Can't you ask the original owner to remove the device from their MS account?

    It is doable. I just posted a response over here:

    Follow the procedure mentioned here: You should get it done in about 2 hours in two steps:

    1) Unbranding


    Optionally you might need WPI tool in case if your phone doesn't boot after step 1) Reflash the same .ffu from step 1) using this tool. Phone should boot.


    2) RESET reset protection

    I have done it for two of my in-laws ATT branded Lumia 640's and it worked!

    Good Luck

    This is a fan based news and discussion site. We are not Microsoft and can not send you the recovery key.

    Log into your Microsoft Account in a web browser, go to devices, find the device on the list and click the link to get the key.
