Can your clarify at what point it is asking for the PIN and what is on screen? Ie. Is it asking for a SIM PIN or booting up to handset and asking for a code for the handset?

Don't know if there is an issue with mentioning this on here but I used a program called Samfirmware after a similar issue with another phone I have. Allows you to totally reset the phone back to factory without the need for flashing or voiding any warranty.
Try a little searching on the Internet for more details and how to use legally.
Hope this helps.

Do you still have the login details for your Samsung Account and able to get into Find My Phone website on a PC or other device? If you can then there's an option to unlock the handset via that. The handset will just need a data connection via SIM
