I put a encrypted password on my phone and I guess I totally forgot my password. I am told by my phone that I only have three more tries and if I continue to put the wrong password I will lose all of my data on my phone. I truly wish to recover all my data especially pictures from my phone?

I need to know if it is possible to recover all my information.

How do I retrieve video and sound recordings from my screen locked Samsung Note4 that will not accept my password?

For no reason the phone will not accept my 4 digit pin code or password to unlock the screen. I did not drop the phone nor did I change the password since I bought the phone. I can receive calls and the phone apparently works okay, but now it will not accept my code. I left the WiFi, Bluetooth, and data OFF. Am hoping there is some way to retrieve my data. Do not want to do hard reset yet until I can find out some creative technique to access my data or undo the password or change it to another one. My only concern is if I change it, will the same incident occur again with a new Password. I am registering my phone with Samsung right now. Any suggestions?. I have tried: I had a Verizon rep use his Note5 to go into device mgr and change my digit Password to another 4 digit Password, but apparently the new Password may not have transferred into my phone because when I entered than new pin code, the screen remained locked. I have used up 8 of my possible 10 attempts.. I think it was caused by: I'm not sure. The only other unusual thing I noticed the day before is that my calendar information for that particular day was mysteriously gone and I had to redo it. I have a Google email account but have not established an account with Samsung until after it happened.

I'm trying to retrieve data from my locked phone. I don't know the password?

A drunk person placed a pattern lock on my phone, I nor they know what it is. I think all my contacts are backed up on Google. Can't be sure about the photos though. Very useful photos, too. Tried to do the whole Google find the phone manual reset password but I don't think it works with the pattern lock. I don't have an SD card in the phone. I'm trying to hook it up to my computer right now and maybe get everything that way. I can't use my phone at all because of the lock.

How do I retrieve my videos and pictures and wipe my phone clean?

Yesterday my phone had finally had it from the cracks I guess. The screen is now nearly entirely black, except for the outer perimeter. It turns on and charges, but that's about it. I need to unlock it and transfer my pictures and videos to my PC. I tried Wondershare, but it apparently doesn't work for the Note5. Is there any hope?
