    Hi there,

    If you have forgotten your pattern then there is no need to worry.
    You can unlock it easily without spending even a single buck.

    You just keep on trying to open the lock by making different pattern untill it tells you that your attempts have been completed.
    After this it will allow you to open your GMAIL ACCOUNT.
    SIGN IN succesfully and an email comprising your pattern answer will be sent into your inbox.
    Get pattern from there and then unlock your device..

    Regards!!!

    Dear,
    Dont worry.
    This is not a big issue.
    All you need to do is just Enter a wrong pattern number of times untill it EXceeds its attempt limits.
    Now you will have to enter a detail about your
    GMAIL account.
    Open your Gmail Acount and Pattern related INformation will there.
    Thank you..!

    Hello all.....

    Well, I must say THANX (To some extent). The 'Fix' below worked, for the first part, but the tricky Call & Back-Button procedure didn't do it for me.
    I've only had my Galaxy Y S6102b for six days now, so I was able to reset it using the 'Data wipe/Factory reset' option on the Boot-up Screen. I just went for it after failing the Call/Back-button method numerous times - and there wasn't anything really saved on the device as yet, so I removed the media card (just to be sure the data on it was safe) and did the Factory Reset, then Rebooted.

    p.s. There wasn't a 'Reset and Restore' option on my device Boot-up Screen, hence I stumbled unto this 'fix' that worked out just great for me - Thanks for pointing me in the right direction though.

    Best regards...............Peetie1975

    Or you can try these methods.


    Keep on entering the wrong code until your phone says "attempts exceeded" , after that you'll get an option to login through Gmail id.
    at this point just enter your email address and in the textbox for password , you enter your password

    After logging in look at the top right corner of your inbox/email page, it would say your google username. Like say if you name is John, and you have a google id thats registered to your galaxy s as ,abcd@gmail.com. Now this google id on the top right corner of the page would be displayed as
    abcd@gmail.com

    Type in the google id, thats visible on the right hand top corner of your page (likeabcd@gmail.com) into your galaxy handset locked page, and type in the password.


    NOW YOU WILL BEON TO THE NEW SCREEN TELLING YOU TO PUT IN ANOTHER PATTERN.



    If even that doesn't helps you . Then you'll have to hard reset your phone.

    Below is the procedure to HARD RESET Samsung phone.


    1 Switch Off your phone.

    2 Hold volume UP and power button and home button simultaneously. Release home button (and press again) while still holding volume up and power button. A boot up screen will pop up. Use volume keys to select (reset and restore) press home button to select.

    3 Once this process is done your phone will start up but it will still be locked.
    Now here is the tricky part

    Get another phone and call on your phone. As soon as you press the answer key press the Back key and goto Main home screen followed by Settings and turn Off the pattern lock and factory Reset the phone again.


    Answer the call --> Press BACK key --> Home Screen --> Main Menu ---> Settings --> Turn Off Pattern Lock --> Factory Reset it Again.




    I hope it is helpful for you !!

    Happy To help !!

    Hello
    Don't worry, just click on forgotton password
    and you can reset your pattern by entering your gmail id and password.
    But remember the email id and password will be same by which you are registered with this handset.

    Or you can try these methods.


    Keep on entering the wrong code until your phone says "attempts exceeded" , after that you'll get an option to login through Gmail id.

    After logging in look at the top right corner of your inbox/email page, it would say your google username. Like say if you name is John, and you have a google id thats registered to your galaxy s as ,abcd@gmail.com. Now this google id on the top right corner of the page would be displayed as abcd@gmail.com

    Type in the google id, thats visible on the right hand top corner of your page (likeabcd@gmail.com) into your galaxy handset locked page, and type in the password.


    NOW YOU WILL BEON TO THE NEW SCREEN TELLING YOU TO PUT IN ANOTHER PATTERN.



    If even that doesn't helps you . Then you'll have to hard reset your phone.

    Below is the procedure to HARD RESET Samsung phone.


    1 Switch Off your phone.

    2 Hold volume UP and power button and home button simultaneously. Release home button (and press again) while still holding volume up and power button. A boot up screen will pop up. Use volume keys to select (reset and restore) press home button to select.

    3 Once this process is done your phone will start up but it will still be locked.
    Now here is the tricky part

    Get another phone and call on your phone. As soon as you press the answer key press the Back key and goto Main home screen followed by Settings and turn Off the pattern lock and factory Reset the phone again.


    Answer the call --> Press BACK key --> Home Screen --> Main Menu ---> Settings --> Turn Off Pattern Lock --> Factory Reset it Again.




    I hope it is helpful for you !!

    If your attempts for entering password is over. Then you will see an option 'Forgot Password' click on that and you will lead to a login page with your playstore account which will lead to an unlock your phone.(But You need to connect to the internet)

    If You are not connect
    ed to the internet or cannot unlock with your playstore account , you need to perform a hardware reset.
    But this will clear all your internal phone and user data and applications.(If you have done any Backups then you could Restore them later)
    Before performing Hardware Reset, it is recommended to remove the Memory Card.

    Turn on Your Android device and perform any of the below reset method:

    >> Press and Hold the Power button and the Home Button together Or Power Button and Volume Buttons Together for a while until the format screen appears.

    >> If Your phone do not have a physical Home Button, Then Press and Hold Power Button and Both Volume Buttons Together.

    >> For Some Tablets there is a Reset Hole Button. Using a pin insert through the hole and press and hold the button for few seconds.

    Thank You
