Hello I bought an Acer tablet from someone off kijiji after doing a factory reset I try to set up the tablet but after signing into my internet it Displays a message stating "the device has been reset. Please enter the gmail or phone number synced to this device" can I get rid of this or did I just but a paper weight?

Isn't it just the start of the set up process so you can begin to use the tablet. Remember having to do this with a new tablet. As it had been reset then you obviously need to set it up for first use .

I seem to remember that this problem normally resolved itself after 72 hours.
