Hi Guys,

I locked my phone with a PIN/Password and forgot it.

How can I unlock it without resetting it? Apparently I can't Factory Reset as it asks for a password.

Is there a way to unlock my phone's password?

Please help.


Model: Samsung Galaxy S GTI-9003

If you hooked it up to a Google account the phone will give you an option to change the pin/password. If not, you have to factory reset it from the recovery boot.

To do this hold down the volume up button + power while the phone is turned off. It should boot into recovery and there will be a factory reset option.
