How we can open our Samsung Galaxy S2 with a locked pattern password if we don't know the email ID and password?

I know the pattern but somebody tried to open the password but due to using the wrong pattern the cell now is asking about email or backup PIN which I don't know.

Your phone is asking for your Google account information to help you unlock your device. When you enter the information, your phone will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password so you can use your device again. Restart your phone to see if your device will reset the password attempts number and allow you to try again. If it doesn't, you will have to log into the Google account. If you don't know the information to the Google account on your phone, you can try to recover it by clicking this link. However, if you are still unable to recover the account information to use with your phone, you will have to perform a Factory Reset. Keep in mind that while this method will delete all of your phone's data, it's the only way you can unlock your device to use it again. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow in-depth article. When the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the password so you won't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future should you forget your device's pattern again.

If you have forgotten your PIN, then you will need to use your Samsung account to get in. Navigate to this Samsung Web site and enter your Samsung name and password. Click "Unlock my screen" under "Protect my device" and confirm it by clicking "Unlock". This should unlock your smartphone before or after you reboot it.

Your second option is to download this file onto the microSD card of S3 by using a computer. Then, go into the recovery menu (click here) by following the steps in the "Hard Reset (use if the device is otherwise unresponsive)" section. Instead of choosing "wipe data/factory reset", choose an option to install or apply a zip file. Select the file on the microSD card and reboot your device by selecting "reboot system now".

You can also hard-reset your S3 as shown here by powering it down first. This will erase all of the data on the internal memory of S3.

How to change the pin password without reset to factory settings?

I changed the pin password at night and on the next day I wasn't able to open it.

It doesn't show "forget password" allowing me to change the password by e-mail.

I don't want to lose the data, do you have a solution to change the password by e-mail or open the phone without formatting it?
