Unfortunately, the only way that you can unlock your phone is by hard resetting it. This will erase all of your device data. However it's possible for you to backup some of your files before performing a Factory Reset. You'll need to remove your SD card first, and should also read our main guide to learn about other ways to backup a locked Android device.
