motorola – Will my phone be unlocked after it factory resets itself?

I forgot the password of my phone, and it says after 4 more failed attempts that it will be wiped clean. If that happens, will my phone be unlocked and ready for use again? I really don’t care about the data on it, because everything I had is easy to get back (mainly just social media apps like instagram/discord).

Any sort of help would be appreciated to the fullest, because I just want to be able to use my phone again.

security – is wallet vulnerable when unlocked for transactions?

is wallet vulnerable when unlocked for transactions?.I recovered a wallet some time ago and all is good.passphrase key all looks good.But a question came to my mind about the moment we make a transaction.I guess we must be connected to the net blockchain or however you call it.Also we unlock the wallet for the transactions right or wrong? if yes,does that not make the wallet vulnereble for hacking even for a few minuites?help appreciated.

applications – “Your Phone Companion” only works on unlocked phone

I do not know if this is a bug or a feature, but it does not make much sense.

I have a Samsung S9, and I managed to connect it to my Windows 10 laptop. I can only start apps when my phone is unlocked, and this is annoying:

  • If I need to pick up my phone anyway to unlock it, I might as well just use that, instead of my laptop
  • Why should I waste electricity on two screens?

Is there any solution?

bootloader lock – Do “unlocked” phones come pre-unlocked or just the ability to be unlocked?

They aren’t related at all

Unlocked phones refer to phones that aren’t bound to any carrier.

It looks like you are mixing this up with bootloader-lock, whose tag wiki says

Some bootloaders are locked by the manufactures to prevent the phones from booting unofficial firmware images.

(Read the wiki and linked questions for more information)

These two are totally independent and as a security measure practically all mobile devices are shipped with bootloader locked while they may be carrier locked /carrier unlocked. For instance, in India we don’t have the concept of carrier locking (barring a negligible few cases) and therefore all phones are carrier unlocked, while they are boot loader locked

hardware – Do unlocked phones get re-opened at the factory?

This question is so borderline, I hesitate to ask it but will anyways. I recently received a new phone from a reputable online retailer, but when I opened the box there appeared to be a fingerprint and another smudge already on the device (before I touched it). I called the retailer and the customer service rep suggested that unlocked phones may be re-opened at the factory to be unlocked… which seems strange, because I would have through they are already unlocked and would only need additional work on them to load carrier skins.

I know I’m unlikely to get a completely satisfactory answer, but was hoping to tell if it’s normal to see smudges on a supposedly new phone from the factory – maybe someone has worked in one before. While I think it’s unlikely they need to re-open and seal the box, I would have thought they would use gloves (now and before to prevent any fingerprints). My main concern is someone loading malicious software/firmware on the device although I could factory reset it again (setup was not complete when I started the phone).

  • I left the retailer and phone manufacturer anonymous here to start, but can add it later if appropriate.

rooting – Unlocked bootloader with OEM locked inside system in Oneplus3. HELP?

Boot to bootloader, unlock oem and start the process all over again. You need to flash a recovery first, then the full ROM.zip.

If this doesn’t work or you can’t get it right, use the unbrick tool. We can provide you with the links if you can confirm your device

Why can carriers limit unlocked iPhone hotspot/tethering?

The answers here and here explain that carriers can tell an iPhone whether to allow tethering or use as a hotspot.

My question is why, on an unlocked phone, can they do that?

Has Apple simply colluded with a cellular service consortium to respect their wishes?

Or are there a means by which a cellular data provider can detect that data are being served to and from a different device through the iPhone bearing its SIM card? (While possible without any countermeasures, AFAIK it would be trivial for the iPhone to obscure the fact that it is tethering.)
