I found my old Samsung which i thought I lost, however i can not remember the 4 digit password to unlock. is there a way to reset without the menu. or by hand reset.
Hey jose. You should bring your phone to your carrier. They should be able to help you unlock your phone.
You can restore the default factory settings for your device; from the standby screen, press Menu Menu key > Settings Settings Icon > Phone Settings > Security > Reset Phone. Scroll down to select Yes, press the Select key key, and enter your Lock Code. Your device will power-cycle and reset back to factory defaults. When your device is done power-cycling, press *228 then Select key from the standby screen to reprogram your device.
NOTE! Using the Reset Phone feature will not delete your personal information; it will restore only settings like default ringtone, keypad tones, and display settings.
