Bypass and replace or add another account? Not sure what you're trying to accomplish?

I am trying to activate the phone with my carrier but it says its locked and it wants the Google account log-in. I don't have this info.

I bought the phone on CL and don't have a way to get this info? Isn't there anyway to bypass this so I can use this phone?

I would try, in order:

 

  1. Performing a "factory reset" on the phone (and I can't tell you exactly how, but that information is readily available in step-by-step format on the web for virtually any smartphone you can name) and see if that gets you around the problem.
  2. If #1 does not work then call the carrier, explain that you acquired the phone from someone else, and are trying to activate it again for your own use.  They can generally reset their systems or tell you how to get around the issue.
  3. As a last resort, flash a custom recovery to the device followed by flashing a custom ROM or a copy of the stock ROM to it.  Once a new Android OS is in place it's essentially as though the thing is brand new.  (Or at least that's been my experience on two devices that I own when I flashed a new version of Android.  Mind you, though, neither had ever been activated for use as a phone, that's why I suggest #2 first.  Unless the carrier suspects theft it's generally in their best interests if they wish to make more money from airtime to allow the new owner to activate the device.)

Thank you, I have tried the hard reset but it still want the Google log in info. I also took it into the carrier and they said I needed this info also and without it they could not do anything?

I remain a bit confused.  Pretty much all Android devices, and particularly those "of a certain age" as you for a Google Account as part of the setup of a device, but you can supply any Google Account.

 

A factory reset should wipe the device (lets not get into the fact that old data can sometimes be reconstructed) and start walking you though setup from scratch.

 

If the device is still locked with the former owner's credentials then the factory reset has not worked.

The carrier told me it was an added security feature and it only asks for it once. I did try and enter my google account info but it said it couldn't find my account?

Are you sure you are typing all the information correctly, like your password? Either way, try typing it in again and if it doesn't work, make a new Google account on your PC and enter it in on your smartphone afterwards. You can change it to your regular Google account after you log into your smartphone. If this doesn't work, go again to your carrier and tell them you are not leaving or letting anyone on the line after you until they provide your problem with some attention. That usually ought to do the job...:lmao:
I am serious, btw.

I tried my google account like three times same result, I have no problem signing in on my PC with it? When it gets to the google account in setup it just asks for the previous google account info, there is no option to enter a new google account?

 

I also tried the steps you suggested to clear the eMMC and when I do this I don't get any option to clear this. The options I get are: REBOOT

REBOOT TO BOOTLOADER

BOOT TO DOWNLOAD MODE

BOOT TO RECOVERY MODE

POWER DOWN

Is it possible to root my phone (even if I cant boot to settings menu) and by doing this will that bypass the google lock that is on my phone?

If I am able to do this can you tell me how if there is a way to enable USB debugging since I cannot get to my settings?

Thank you!

I'm sorry, I really don't know enough to help you with your last 2 comments in this topic. You might want to check KingoRoot, though. It would probably be faster to try if it would work instead of reading on the Internet if it's possible to do it or not.:)

You will need to find out the actual model number of your device, which is usually located on a sticker behind the battery.

 

Once you have that you should do a web search on:

 

1.  Root and the device 

2.  Custom recovery and the device

3.  Stock and/or custom ROM (Android OS) and the device.

 

You will have to root the device, install a custom recovery, then reflash the stock ROM or custom ROM to get back to the land of the living if nothing you've done so far has worked.

 

There are one-step root techniques for virtually any device you can name and the step-by-step directions for doing that and the rest are out there and don't bear rehashing here.
