    I'm facing the same problem. I set up my google account with the phone but I'm not getting any option to reset. I know that the google account is definitely connected because I checked on my laptop and could access the play store and applications on my phone through my google account. I have attempted to get my pin over 80 times and nothing is happening except every 5 tries they ask me to wait 30 seconds. I don't know what to do and I have pictures that have been saved to the device, not the sim card. Is my only option to factory reset?

    To unlock your mobile remotely, go to (findmymobile.samsung.com) > sign in > on the left pane, select Lock my mobile. Run the ”Lock my device” function in the Find My Mobile service with a new PIN and cancel the 'Lock my device' function with the new PIN on the device.

    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.

    Thank you. This worked perfectly for my Galaxy S4

    Hoping to find help with this. Locked out of my Galaxy S5 due to too many unsuccessful fingerprint swipes. Do not remember passcode. Went onto Android Device Manager to use the "lock" feature. It says it successfully sent the lock code to my phone (and my phone displays the message I included in addition to the code ) but right after that Android Device Manager says "Since Google has verified that a screen lock is already set, the password you entered won't be needed." And then when I try the new password it doesn't work. I've done that countless times. I also do not get a "forgot password" place to click, although I know my google id and password if it would allow for that.

    I apparently do not have "findmymobile" set up on my phone so I cannot use that as an option.

    Any help would be appreciated as I really don't want to have to factory reset my phone.

    So I've locked my Sony C5 303 with the phones screen pin lock and unfortunately there's no way I can reset the pin there is no "Forgotten Password" or nothing!! that appears, all that appears is I have to wait or Emergency call. PLEASE HELP I've tried rebooting and resetting but those seem to not work either. I've tried installing apps from my pc to unlock it but still NOTHING!

    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!

    Hi Guys,, I found this site on google looking for solution on how to gain access. My boss ask me to find a solution on how to gain access to his phone because he forgot the pattern although he has gmail account but unfortunately the phone does not have internet connection. Is it possible to access phone without losing data? Any solution on how to connect his phone to the internet?

    Thank you

    I had the same problem - Samsung S5, changed the PIN but forgot it. Google didn't work, neither did Samsung.

    As I didn't want to lose all the data on the phone and after a lot of head scratching here is how I solved the problem.

    1. Downloaded "apowersoft phone manager" and "mobigenie3" - both are easily found in a google search. I didn't need both as they do the same job but I was being extra cautious.

    2. After installing the programs, I started with "apowersoft". I connected my phone via a USB cable and lo and behold I had full access to everything on the phone even thought it was still locked.

    3. I used the Backup option in the program and backed up Contacts, Text Messages, Call Logs, Music, Pictures, Videos and Apps.

    4. I then carefully used the built in file manager to copy any other data files I might need - the one in particular I needed to copy was my encrypted file containing all my passwords for websites etc. I wasn't too worried about any other files so I stopped looking at that point.

    5. I then used "mobigenie3" and did exactly the same again but saved the backups to a different location. I admit I was paranoid but the thought of losing all the data on my phone was terrifying.

    6. I then disconnected the USB cable and, with fingers, legs and eyes crossed, I did a factory reset.

    7. After restart I set up the usual items - including a PIN which I wrote down this time, connected the phone again via USB, and restored the data using the programs mentioned above.

    I am now a happy bunny.

    DISCLAIMER: although this worked for me, I cannot guarantee it will work for you so please go slowly and think carefully before you do a factory reset.

    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.
