I locked my Samsung S4 with a 4 digits # and now it tells me wrong password?

How can I reset that password without losing my data. I have tried: Just a different numbers that I thought I punch by mistake? I know it was 2222 but I may have punched one of these numbers in error like 5 or 3

Keep attempting but write down each sequence. You will only have a few possibilities with 2222. You may get an option to log in with your Google Account during these attempts and if you do, use that to gain access. This way you will not have to hard reset your phone.

Hi, It's not an S4 but a Galaxy solid - have forgotten the passcode?

I got directed to the S4 details for unlocking the phone. This is a company phone given out to a staff member and his son put in a passcode and they can't remember it now. I know we could do a hard reset but was wondering if there is a way around it which does not result in clearing the data on the phone

As long as their son linked a Google Account to the phone, it can still be recovered. Google Accounts Authority has several ways to gain access to the device. Hopefully, you can access the phone this way. Try using Kies to back up his contacts and data first if you end up having to hard reset the device.

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.

I have a touch screen Galaxy S4 phone, but the shift button to activate capital letter doesn't work, I can't unlock my phone?

How could I unlock my phone?

First, do a soft reset and pull you 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.

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?

I lost my phone so I locked and erased it then I found my phone, it is telling me to enter the last synced Gmail account, when I do, it says the same thing over again?

It says enter Gmail account phone last sync with, but when I do, it says that again. I have tried: Reboot. I think it was caused by: I erased and locked phone
