    The only reason I see to lock my phone would be nosy people in my life.
    I use pattern unlock. Its microseconds slower than a swipe and it only enables after a period of inactivity
    I also use pattern unlock. Though I don't expect to lose my phone or have it stolen, one other reason to lock the phone (even if you don't have any information on your phone that you deem confidential) is that it prevents a finder from using the phone. I have a lock screen message with my name, land line number, and "REWARD IF FOUND" and hopefully the phone being locked up will give the finder extra incentive to return the phone for a reward.

    Not everyone does that... I like being able to go in people's contacts and finding "mom" "babe" "dad" "home" anything like that... so I can call and try to return it to the rightful person

    Ok, I need to ask this for my well-being, but why do you have an android phone and no google account? Seems counter-intuitive...and odd.

    Factory reset is your solution. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you get to behave like a jerk.

    Hi golfdriver97 - I'm stuck in the same predicament. Forgot the PIN I set up on my Galaxy Ace and now it seems I'm completely stuck. If anyone knows a solution please reply! I'm hoping I do not have to do the reset and lose data. Thanks in advance.

    help! I was changing from pattern unlock to my regular PIN and I guess I put it in wrong so it's not taking it on my lockscreen. There is no option to reset it from the lockscreen. Thank you in advance!

    The Galaxy S4 does not give you the option to sign into your google account if you forgot your password. This is where I'm stuck

    I am having this same problem. There is no forgot password link on the pin version of the lock screen. The phone just keeps counting my number of attempts and after every fifth it tells me to wait 30 seconds. The highest I've gotten is 50 attempts...Someone please have an answer!!!

    If you had been using try using the gmail id and password as so many have suggested.
    Pattern locks generally has the unlock section, that asks for your gmail id and password. This section is not always shown. If you continue to punch in the wrong pattern code for a certain number of times, then it shows up. Generally i had found it near the bottom right.

    As i just now made a couple of mistakes to take a screen shotOMG Forgot PIN and can't get past lock screen!-1373423095478.jpg

    As i will never forget the gmail id and password, il always stick to using pattern lock only. Limitations are there in how complex a code you can have (which is not so complex-no repetation).

    Hope this helps.

    On my phone, I use just the swipe to unlock. No password, no pin. Nobody goes through my phone because it's always on my person. I'm sure if someone tried to lift it from my pocket, I'd know.

    The only reason I see to lock my phone would be nosy people in my life. If someone takes my phone, what do they really have access to, other than my email and whatever saved passwords there are? Google wallet? Big deal, it has a pin. My bank accounts? Pin on one, password on the other. PayPal? Pin. Texts? Sweet, they'll find some dirty pictures of my fiancee and myself. Phone numbers? Do you really wanna call any of the a-holes I deal with? Games? Cool, you'll be entertained. I don't keep anything personally that imperative on my phone.

    +1 Couldn't agree more! Besides even if you lose or have your phone stolen, all the perp has to do is come on a website such as this and people fall allover themselves telling them how to defeat the password anyhow.

    I am asking this to be more clear, Will that work if there is no internet on your phone ? Or maybe i do have internet plan or wifi around, but the moment when i had forgotten the password, niether wifi nor mobile data was enabled.....then
