    My son was messing around with my phone and locked me out. Of course I cannot remember the backup password, or if I even set up a password. Is there anything I can do before having to do a factory reset? I have tried android device manager, but since the phone is already locked that will not work.

    Thank you in advance for any assistance!

    If you haven't set up a password the default is the last four numbers of your phone's number.
