McAfee has locke my phone and asking for PIN.My phone got locked when I removed the sim when the phone was powered.

My phone XPERIA S  got locked when I removed the sim when the phone was powered.McAfee has locked my phone and asking for PIN.

I hate McAfee.Such protection is annoying.My phone is useless now.

Can anybody tell me how to format and load fresh operating system?

I keep mailing McAfee and they keep replying asking for registered email.How can I know that I have registered

my email with them?.

Also I could not find my phone's IMEI at the back and not able to go to menu to enter codes so that I can find

IMEI.

Help pls.

Thanks,

Kamalakannan.

exactly you do NOT need mcafee it creates a lot of issues not just this, just repair it with SUS or PCC but know that it will delete your apps, sms, mms, contacts etc, your pictures and videos will not be affected

Update Service (SUS)
