I have a Galaxy S5570.
While testing the screen protection mechanisms, I set the PIN password.
I knew the 4-digit sequence that I had entered. But when the screen was locked, it could not be unlocked with the same 4-digit seqeunce.
The problem is that I have made more than 30 attempts now, and I am sure even if I enter the correct seqeunce, it will not accept!!!
Never mind. I do not need the data. I want to do a hard reset or a factory reset.
The phone is not rooted and still covered.
I am not able to find any method anywhere that could tell how to reset it.
I tried different combinations and have always ensured that the battery is full charged at 100% when trying to do a reset.
Tried a firmware upgrade thru Kies too. The firmware upgrade went fine, but the data has not been reset.
I have notified the Samsung support, but have not received any good information from the rep yet.
Please do not ask me to root it, I do not want to void the warranty within 1 month of purchase
