    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]
