Hi, CarolinaW

 

I've fixed my issue by spending more than 24 hours on internet

remember that, i also tried to use google sign in option from play store & google find my phone as well, but it was all failed.

 after a lot of page visits and watching youtube videos, i was disappointed but 

i think on 5th or 6th page of google search results there was an article with the title :
"10 Solutions to unlock pattern without losing data"
so i read that, there were same things that i read before, like drfone, etc. etc. but at 6th or 7th point i saw a word "Samsung Find My Phone". i thought to try this, even i knew this site before but it was not coming in my mind at the time of trouble. 

so i tried to login on Samsung Find My Phone, just logged in, and clicked on "Unlock"

That's it !!

 

It was just unbelieveable !

You could look at the options explained on this link What-do-if-you-forgot-your-samsung-galaxy-lock-screen-password

A hard reset will delete your info but if your phones backed up you should be ok. 

This is one reason to also back up to alternative online vaults and Sd Cards etc. 

As the passlock is a security feature it's not meant to be by passed easily as it's in place to protect a person's info in the phone from others finding or stealing it.

Thanks so much for this.  I too spent 24 hours trying all sorts of methods to unlock the screen on my old mobile, I even contacted the Samsung support centre who failed to mention this easy solution and directed me to my nearest Samsung Engineer Store which is more than 25 miles away.  So thanks again for sharing.
