    Hey Guys.
    A friend of mine tried to unlock my phone and made multiple failed attempts and choose some option which now have resulted in the phone being BLOCKED. it is not showing the "normally available option" of logging in via the gmail account. It is asking for a recovery password. I have no idea what that password is as i never set such a password. I have tried all my accounts on the phone. i tried 0000 and 00000000 aswell for the default passwords but of no avail. The screen shows "Recovery password required to unblock phone".
    When i give a wrong password it says "Incorrect recovery password.All data will be wiped in line with security policy". As i dont want to do this i turn off my phone and upon restarting it this happens again. I tried removing the battery for sometime.Keeping the phone turned off etc but nothing positive.

    Any suggestions on a workaround or what might the password be?

    You're talking about your friend trying to unlock your phone to any network right. If you enter that code in wrong you need another code to be able to try the first code again. I think you're best bet is to try one of the unlock sites on the internet. You give them your imei and about

    If this is the SIM card lock then you need to contact your network provider, as only they can provide the PUK code required; it's unique to your handset/SIM.

    If it is the lockscreen PIN that's been failed, then (iirc) you should be asked for your Google account credentials as verification. This is only available if there's an active data connection so if the handset was in Flight Mode when it was locked then it won't show up.

    The only other thing I can think it's looking for is a Samsung account, if you have set up one of those in order to access Samsung Apps.

    Might mean a trip to the nearest Samsung Service Point.

    Terrible run of bad luck. Best advice as mentioned is get in touch with Samsung or your carrier as they will help you if you have your correct documentation.

    if worse comes to worse, you could do a factory reset in the recover mode.

    power off

    power on and keep pressing the power button, home button and hold the volume key up.

    from the menu you can choose to do a factory reset, obviously, if you do this you will loose all your customisations and anything stored on the phones internal memory.
