Photos and SMS on Samsung Galaxy S2 - forgot pass-code?

My Samsung Galaxy S2 is locked by a pass-code which I cannot remember. There is no limit to the amount of attempts I can make to enter the pin-code. No Google account recovery option. I really need the photos and preferably the SMS on the phone and don't want to loose them by doing a Factory Reset.

Forgotten password on Samsung Galaxy S2?

My daughter changed the password on my S2 and cannot remember what it is. It does not give me the option of "forgotten password". I would prefer not to lose any data but if it is the only way, so be it. Any help gratefully accepted.

Short of entering the password, you'll need to do a Hard Reset. Sometimes you'll get an option to recover with the use of a Google account, though your device will need to be connected to a network for that to work.
