My note3 is pin locked and I can't unlock it... Please help....


Active Member
I have had note 3 for few months but it didn't have any kind of lock so I thought of putting the pin lock. I put my usual pin which I normally use but now when I'm trying to unlock it, it's coming us wrong pin!! :eek::eek::eek: Now I can only call my wife (As I had put her number as emergency number few weeks ago) and emergency numbers. I have tried to put PIN which may be similar to what I originally put but no luck. :mad:

Please help as I'm in deep s*** now and don't know what to do.....

Don't think there is alot you can do, it is designed to be secure. Imagine if it was stolen you be glad that you could not get access to the phone.

Only option is a hard reset. Power off, press and hold both Volume Up + Home+power on.
In the recovery menu, select wipe data factory reset using the volume button.
All data will be lost but thems the breaks...

Thanks for your reply. Actually I took it to phones 4 u showroom and they did the factory reset and everything has been wiped out. But atleast I've got my phone back. I can't believe I did that. I was doing after my night shift so perhaps wasn't in my sound mind!
