The issue in GetHuman1963722's own words
I have a Samsung Galaxy S** phone, however, the account is under m friends name. I did a factory data reset on the phone because it was not acting correctly. I felt it may have a bad virus or even possibly be hacked. I say hacked because the phone has a different email address & name that is neither my friend's or mine. After doing factory reset, the phone is stuck and won't recognize any google accounts. How can I resolve this because now the phone isn't doing the basics like making or receving calls or text messaging. What can I do to resolve this & make it work again? Thank you
