So the other day Im out walking my dogs by the lake by my house and I found a TL. It is password protected. I have had it on for a week and no one has called it. I have tried button combo after button combo to get it in to recovery to reset it so that my wife can use it. I have never used a sony how do you boot in to recovery, or do a reset with out getting in to the phone?

thanks
