    I accidentally locked myself out of my GS3. I put a pin lock and forgot it and i can;t use my google account because the option is not there. Is there anyway to unlock it or can i take it to AT&T and they can unlock it for me somehow? I do not have debugging enabled and i am not rooted. If the only option is a factory restore, is there anyway i can back it up without the passcode? So when i do restore it i can just put all the stuff back on. Thanks!
    I don't think there is a way to unlock it without the pin without wiping it. I watched a crime show (real life cases) where they had to send a phone to a specialist to try to break the code so they could pull the text messages off of it. Otherwise everything would have been removed. If the FBI can't do it, I'm pretty sure AT&T can't. Good luck.

    Thanks for the response! Do you know if i can back the phone up without the pass code?
    I have no idea as I don't actually know how to back it up with the passcode. All my important stuff is automatically synced to my Google account so I never worry about it.
