Reboot into recovery and factory reset might work. Three button combo power + up&down volume button when u see the galaxy s2 boot screen let go of power and continue to hold up and down vol

I dunno what else I can say, there is a local guy here in indy who can unlock cell phones, he has a business in broad ripple. Maybe there is somebody like that locally where you live? Maybe google something like "cellular services (insert where you live here)".

Samsung Galaxy S2 - Hard reset (ITVraag.nl) - YouTube

This is the international version. For the AT&T S2 (SGH-i777) you hold the volume up+volume down and press power. The rest is the same.

Laugh unlocking phone

Just used the new paid version of Screen Lock Bypass called Screen Lock Bypass Pro. It was $2.00 and it worked flawlessly! No need to reset the phone once you're in!! I give it 5 stars. You just download it from the market from your pc and once it installs on your phone, plug in your charger and poof! It takes you to a screen to manage/reset your password.

If your device is connected to a google apps account (maybe even if not?) and you have it registered in My Devices (www.google.com/apps/mydevices) then you can reset the pin from the device page - remotely

EDIT: You do need a google apps account on your phone with Device Policy in effect see support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1056433

I am stuck with the same problem. I don't want to factory reset the phone as I will loose my contacts. The software Screen Lock Bypass Pro is incompatible with the Samsung Galaxy S2 i777. Can some one please help ?
