Re-register my Windows Phone ID and password

Last month I bought a Nokia Lumia 630. At the same time, the salesman had set my email and password. But I've already forgotten my password and tried many times already. How can I re-register my Windows Phone with a new ID and password? Thanks and regards.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The only way to re-register it with a different account would be
resetting it, but if you do that you will lose all your information, and
you won’t be allowed to re-install any application you have paid for,
since they are associated to the account used to register the phone.

In case you want to do that, here’s the official guide:

Reset my phone

However, you could try going to www.outlook.com, and clicking on the “can’t access your account?” link.  It will give you some chances to re-gain access to your account without needing to reset your phone.

And as a recommendation, to prevent something like that from happening again, consider using some password management tool.  On Windows Phone I’ve used “Password Padlock” and it has worked very well so far.

    Quoting what I said in the answer Wiki a couple of years ago:

    "And as a recommendation, to prevent something like that from happening again, consider using some password management tool.  On Windows Phone I’ve used “Password Padlock” and it has worked very well so far."

    This topic describes how to register or unregister a phone.

    It’s important to test your apps on a real phone. Before you can deploy apps to your Windows Phone, you have to register the phone for development. After you register your Windows Phone 8 phone, you can install, run, and debug apps that target Windows Phone 8 or Windows Phone OS 7.1 on the phone.
