My husband managed to instantly forget his screen lock password on new secondhand Nokia 2.4. Problem is, USB debugging had not been enabled; there is no "forgot password" option or similar no matter how many times you put in wrong password; all different key combinations of volume up and power on, volume down and power on etc. fail to get into recovery mode for hard resent; "find my device" cannot locate it as after power on the data is disabled until the screen is unlocked; ADB and fastboot does not connect (I believe as USB debugging is not enabled - and cannot enable it as it is locked).

Does anyone know a way to hard reset this specific phone? I'm tired of cut and paste solutions that say "just hold this and this" and none of them work!
