    This is a Solution for gaining access to your locked S6 when your fingerprint and backup password has failed and all connectivity is off.

    Mine failed after the battery died and obviously some how lost the data. Fingerprint and backup password wouldn't work! I couldn't use the Google password to reset due to no connectivity.

    I was getting to the point where a factory reset was the only option but found that when selecting "Emergency Mode" from the "Power off" menu my phone connected to the mobile and wifi network briefly while it loaded the theme settings.
    so I took the phone out of "Emergency mode" and typed in the Google email and password, ready to hit "enter" after I had selected "Emergency mode" I rapidly hit "enter" as the phone loaded "Emergency mode" and after a couple of tries the swipe screen came up and i was able to turn back on wifi before exiting "Emergency mode"

    I now have full access once again!!!

    I hope this help you guys who are gotten yourselves in the same situation as I did!
