How do you unlock a forgotten passcode on your  samsung galaxy is a simple trick to unlock a forgotten passcode on your  android os phone .i finally solved the issue using two methods .you can use this method for samsung galaxy tab galaxy s or duos.

Method 1  How do you unlock a forgotten passcode on your  samsung galaxy

Use the admin code (*#6984125*#) to access the settings menu. 2. Go to pre-configuration and it will prompt for the operators code (*#73561*#) 3. Default should be already selected just load it and your phone will restart. You`ll get the chance to poke the arrows for calibration and you`l need to put your wallpaper back as well as sound profile for your phone but everything else is untouched.


Method 2 How do you unlock a forgotten passcode on your  samsung galaxy

Switched off the Phone 2.

Press ( VolumeUp VolumeDown Home ) and then pressed the power button while holding the three buttons and i got into boot menu

Slected the wipe data / factory reset option

An exclamation mark with android man logo will be displayed

After some 10 – 15 minutes i pressed the Home button and i got the boot menu again

Selected reboot and it gave another logo ( Open box with android man logo ) and i pressed the home button to reboot the phone in the fresh factory condition Lessons learnt 1.

Never ever use Unlock pattern if you are not able to remember 2. Backup your phone regularly ( Luckily i got my contacts back up atleast) Hope this helps somebody with the same problem But please note that all the data will be lost so think before you do anything
