Setting up new Connect 1tablet

  Honorary Aussie 09:59 15 Jan 2017

I'm trying to set up a new Connect tablet for my granddaughter. In order to complete the process it is saying we need to enter a postcode that has been emailed to her. However we can't get into the email account to access it without the code!!! To make matters worse, the password we created is not being recognised so we can't even reset the device to factory settings. How can we get round this?
