My son has an HTC Desire 601
a few days ago one of his buddies was messing with it trying to figure out his lock code. Now his phone seems to be locked up completely and all he can do is receive calls. He can't make out-going calls, send or receive texts.
An ideas how to open it back up again or is his best bet to go into the koodo kiosk where he got it?
For today he switched his sim card into my phone so he could have a phone. He even tested my sim card in his phone it still wouldn't unlock.

Under caall settings

Phone...settings

Make sure that FDN (fixed dialing numbers) aren't enabled.
ok... when he gets home from school I'll get him to try that :-)
ok... that won't work, because he can't get past turning it on. it won't let him access settings or anything. the only he can do is receive calls
He cant get past lock screen, it keeps asking for an email and password. but it won't sign in because he cant get internet into it to turn on internet.
Any ideas?

Okay so he's going to need to get into recovery mode and perform a factory reset. Unfortunately this will delete all his data / apps and restore the phone to its original fresh out da box state.

Thanks I'll let him know. :-)
I'll update here if it still won't work
