    Trouble in changing the lock type on Sony Xperia S android phone

    When I try to change the screen lock type on my Sony Xperia S, it asked me to enter the PIN number. Even after typing the correct number, I can’t access the screen lock type top change it. What should I do to overcome this issue?

    Hello friend,

    First of all check whether you are running the latest Android version supported. If not, update it.
    If it still doesn't work, I'd suggest you to backup your data and perform a factory reset.

    Use SMS backup and Restore to backup messages.
    Your SMS's would be backed up on your SD card which you can restore later.

    Download Titanium Backup (Root) to backup apps and their data.
    You can restore apps along with their data and restore.

    Turn on contacts syncing with your Gmail account.
    So whenever you login with your account, contacts would be restored.

    Now follow these steps:
    - Go to System Settings.
    - Security.
    - Factory Data Reset.
    - Now enter your account details and tap on reset.
    - Your device would be restored to its factory state.

    This might solve the problem.
    Now you may restore your data.

    Hello friend,
    There may be some software regarding issue to must have to reset your phone and then try again.

    Remember, by performing a reset, all your data- settings, messages, apps, etc would be deleted.
    So backup up anything important.

    Follow these steps:
    - Go to 'Settings'.
    - Privacy.
    - 'Factory Data Reset'.
    - Fill in your id and password and confirm.
    - You can choose whether to delete SD card data or not.

    After the process is complete, your device would return to its out-of-the-box state or to its factory settings.

    Regards!
