Need to recover my locked Android phone without losing data?

My phone got locked after few attempts. WiFi not turned on, debugging not turned on. Is there any other way I can recover the phone without losing any data

For your security, Google does not allow you to get into a device once the various authentication methods have been exhausted. In the event that a thief gets hold of your phone, this would prevent them from accessing personal data. In your case, it serves only to frustrate you and prevent you from getting into your phone.

Unfortunately, it looks like the only way forward is to reset your device to factory default settings. You can find a guide for how to do so here: Perform a factory reset on Android Device.

Hi, I have my old Galaxy S2 that I would like to bring out of retirement for my Wife to use, but I can't remember the unlock code that I used. I have tried 15 times to remember it and have been locked out for 30 second after every 5th attempt. I am only interested in saving my photos as I have about 3 or 4 years worth of our children and it would be an awful shame to lose all those memories. I have tried connecting the phone to the PC via a USB cable with no luck. I am also worried that I will be locked out for good if there is a limit to how many times I can attempt to remember and input the code?
