Same happened to me a while back ... i have bought another phone )
I don't think it's possible to get thru that stupid screen lock

I mean without loosing your data
Because if you wipe and reset to factory no codes will bother you again

If you turn of (power down) the phone; For example: force remove the battery. When you start the phone next time, you can go into the recovery mode on Samsung Galaxy xCover GT-S5690. Here is how: Universal Gingerbread Root & Unroot 2.3.3 -> 2.3.7+

You have an option here (in recovery mode: wipe data/factory reset) to reset the phone, and then the only password you should need is to the SIM-Card.
Now the phone is as when you bought it

But have in mind that you are going to lose all you internal data on your phone. Are unsure if you loose data on your MicroSD card, but I do not think so [99,8% sure that you don't loose data on your MicroSD card]
