Free, cheapy A T & T phone may have been accidentally locked this morning before church.
(Walking toward the door, pressed the hangup button, that brings up the "Power Off" display, glare on the phone couldn't read the display. The phone shut off but it may have switched the display to "Lock' before I pressed the select button)
I have never locked it so don't know the code to reactivate it and my plan doesn't include internet or text.
Cousin should be on the same tower as me, his phone is working.
The "signal strength" meter is lighting up each bar individually in stairstep fashion from bottom to top, like it's searching for signal. (Only 1 bar is lit at a time.)
Does this sound like a locked phone problem or a tower problem ? Thanks.
