Go to Google Accounts Authority or Android Device Manager. Try to unlock your phone through there since you know your Google Account. You can also try a soft reset and see if that give you the option of using your Google Account.

My Galaxy S4 has suddenly needed a password and I don't know what it is. If I have attempted 9 times can I wait for a certain amount of time and try again without it doing a factory reset?

I am wondering if I wait until tomorrow, will it give me more tries to unlock the phone without doing a factory reset?

How could I unlock my phone?



First, do a soft reset and pull your battery and push all around the back of the phone while the battery is removed. Then see if your keyboard works. If you still can't access the Shift Key, access Google Play on your tablet or PC and download the Samsung Keyboard to your Samsung Galaxy S4 remotely.
