Locked me out! Took my SIM out for a second and it locked my device (fair enough), however, I could not remember my pin so I went to the protect website, but it said "there is no association with that number" dispite the fact that it had locked my device with that number... Eventually got it back when my friend typed in 1 to 9 in the pin... Get the AVG app

Won't verify my number. I'm sure it would be good if it verified my number. Tried on my phone and on my PC but nothing worked.
