    got myself locked out of my phone ( was drunk ) tried everything short of buying a new one and nothing worked but i found a nice workaround while messing about :)

    remove sim and mem card

    1 : drain battery
    2 : put on charge with phone turned off
    3 : start phone
    4 : from the login to account screen press back button untill on the slide to unlock screen
    5 : remove charge cable
    6 : you should get an insert charge cable screen with ok and battery use
    7 : hit battery use and a new screen should apear hit ( house button ) and then hit menu / settings

    two choices
    a : if you know your unlock code

    8 : location and security / change screen unlock / enter combo then set up a new one ( use a password or pin code as using swipe just resets device back to locked )

    b : factory reset

    9 : privacy / factory reset data / reset phone / confirm / wait for reboot

    replace sim + mem card

    personally i used the factory reset and no problems at all


    hope this helps
