    Default Locked out

    I am locked out of my samsung galaxy5. I used device manager to lock it, but cannot use this same application to unlock it without erasing? My password is not working

    Default Re: Locked out

    You use the device manager to set the password then go to the phone and unlock it with that password.

    Yes, using a PC or another phone, go to google.com/android/devicemanager and log in using your gmail account and password.

    Assuming it finds your phone, click the Lock function and assign a new pin code. Now go back to your phone and use the new pin code to unlock it.
