You will have to contact you email provider directly, if you remember who that is.


Let's see if I have this correct, you bought this four years ago from someone else, never set it up, and you are trying to enter your email address or theirs? Are you entering someone else's email and trying to answer their security questions?

Actually i bought this mobile 4 years before as second hand , so i dont know that person details..


@mayer I almost burst out laughing when I read this but it's 12:00.

In reality though, this sony software is supposed to be able to reset the device using a PC with the "Repair tool": https://support.sonymobile.com/gb/xperia...

Based on this: https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-P/...

However, it may not work because sony may have updated the application to remove that feature or discontinue that device.


@mayer I think whoever owned this previously set a pattern lock and didn't reset the phone before selling. Besides the pattern lock, you can probably get into the phone with your email and security question. The best solution here would to reset it using that software above if it still works.
