    I am able to put phone un recovery mode and complete a reset/wipe data operation.
    Then power off
    When reboots though, it is still locked.

    I took out SIM as well.

    With SIM in, i can call the phone, and it rings.

    I cant get into the phone.

    PLEASE HELP!

    You can't. Forgetting the unlock code converts the phone into an expensive paperweight. He's just going to have to think really hard. (Next time he can write it down and put it in his sock drawer.)

    Welcome to Android Central! You did a full factory reset through the Recovery Menu? If so, then it should ask for the Google account/password associated with the phone. Hopefully your husband remembers that?
