Your best bet for recovering or resetting your password to your Samsung phone without losing data is to unlock it by going to your Google account on the phone. You will be LED to a screen with a secure lock icon with the instruction "To unlock, sign in with your Google Account. You will then be asked to input the Gmail address that you signed up with when you got the phone and the password to that Gmail account into a username and password field. Once in you will be able to click on the lock icon and unlock the phone and you will not have lost data.
