If you have forgotten your PIN lock on your Samsung Galaxy S2, you will need to enter the wrong PIN up to 20 times until your phone asks for your Google account information. When you enter it, your phone will unlock, allowing you to remove or change the PIN to something you can remember. If you don't remember your Google account information, you can try to recover it here. If your phone doesn't ask for your Google account information, you can't retrieve it, or you never logged into a Google account in the first place, you will need to perform a Factory Reset. This process will wipe all of your phone's data, including the PIN number, to unlock your phone by bringing it back to its original factory settings. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the information. In addition, be sure to write down the new PIN number you choose so you can refer back to it if you ever forget the PIN again.
