Samsung Galaxy Spica - Pattern lock

December 2016

Issue



I have a Samsung Galaxy Spica, and unfortunately I wrongly entered the unlock pattern (5 times) and now it is locked.

It's asking me to enter my google account. I entered my address and code several times but it did not work.

Solution

  • Turn off your phone and then turn it on - you must enter your PIN code
  • After entering the PIN code , you'll be ask to enter the Google code (Don't do it)
  • Ask someone to call you

Even if the phone is locked you will be able to answer the call (green key)
  • the press the return key.
  • Go to Menu > Settings > Security and then you can uncheck security pattern required
  • You will get pattern you had selected to block your phone earlier
  • Re-enable this feature if necessaty
  • At that moment, you can hang up your phone, it shall be unlock
