    If you have Windows 10 Mobile try this: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...any-times.html

    If you have 8.1 or below... 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.

    ????. My 18 month old was playing with my wife's phone and messed with the pin. All she got was 'enter this phrase / code' which when she did, the pin screen reappeared.

    I guess that's what you are on about, but the information is very limited. Could you elaborate??

    The only way it to hard reset via key combo. I've been in your situation. Sucks.
