My Samsung Galaxy S4 phone has been sitting in my drawer for over a year and I can't remember my PIN!
My daughter gave me her iPhone, but I was hesitant to switch and unsure if I'd adjust or want to go back to what was comfortable so I didn't wipe/reset it. There are things I now need to access so a factory reset is not an option. I keep trying but with no luck; and not knowing how many numbers I used doesn't make this any easier. Each time I get to 20 failed attempts I have to wait 30 seconds before I can keep guessing. I am keeping a log so as not to repeat ones that haven't worked. Also the screen doesn't stay lit for long (not sure if I had set it up that way or not). The SIM card is not in there (although I may still have it) and I am still using the same carrier (Verizon). I'm pretty sure I emailed all my photos to myself back then, but I need to access texts from that time period. Is there a way to unlock my phone without removing texts? Keeping my fingers crossed there is and I hope to hear back soon. Thank you in advance for whatever info you are aware of that will work. My phone is no longer active, there isn't a SIM card in it but I may still have it, I am with the same carrier, and I really only need access to my texts and my notes. also I can't recall how many digits were used for my PIN. I have tried: As of now I am up to 32 attempts. I was pretty sure I knew what the pin was and even tried variations of them, but no luck. I thought it was limited to 4 digits but when I kept entering in zeros to see how many it would allow, it goes up to 16!! I am pretty confident I wouldn't have created a 16 digit pin to access my phone. I think it was caused by: Too much time went by and apparently my memory has failed me on this
