  2. Can anyone give me the reset recovery key for windows 10

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    A quick question before we proceed:

    Are you referring to the Recovery key for BitLocker or the key that needed for resetting Windows Phone?



    If you are referring to the Reset Key that is needed for Windows Recovery, then I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps:

    • Go to account.microsoft.com/devices.
    • Next to the phone you no longer own, click I don't own this phone anymore.
    • Select “I’m ready to remove my phone “check box, note the
      recovery key, and then click Remove. The recovery key will display on the page and will also be emailed to you.
    • When you're certain that you have your recovery key saved, select “I’ve kept a copy of the recovery key “ check box, and then click Okay.
    • Forward the recovery key email to your phone recipient.
    Your phone is no longer listed on account.microsoft.com/devices, and you can remove Reset Protection during phone setup using recovery key option.



    If you are referring to reset key for BitLocker, then I suggest you to refer to the following Microsoft article.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help.

    How to get reset protection recovery key

    Hi
    LeandroSpagnol


    Most USA phones do not work in Europe.... Diferent Systems.

    The reset protection Key in that case is associated to the Microsoft Account of the first owner. The reset protection is a system to make sure that one cannot reset a phone that belongs to someone else and use it. The reset protection is only activated when
    the phone is used, and a Microsoft Account is associated to the device.

    When a phone is moved from one person to another a few steps have to be made to make sure that the other person can use it. Here they are:

    1. Go to account.microsoft.com/devices;
    2. Next to the phone you no longer own, select Remove phone.
    3. Select the I'm ready to remove my phone check box, note the recovery key, and then select Remove. The recovery key will display on the page and will also be emailed to you.
    4. When you're certain that you have your recovery key saved, select the I've kept a copy of the recovery key check box, and then select Okay.
    5. Forward the recovery key email to your phone recipient.
    Your phone is no longer listed on account.microsoft.com/devices, and the recipient can remove Reset Protection during phone set up using the Disable using recovery key option.

    Tell the person you purchased the phone from to do that in order that you can use that phone.
