Forgot phone password

My daughter put a password on my Samsung A737 a few days ago, she can't remember the password, so now I'm locked out. Is there anyway around this? It want even go to the menu so I can do a factory default reset. Right now I can only make SOS calls Woman Sad

Thanks

Far as I'm aware there is no away around the password itself. Not sure with that phone but most of them if you enter the password wrong to many times it will put the phone through a master reset. Because without the menu access you can't do a master reset any other way. Remember with a master reset you will lose everything. Hope this helps!

Re: Forgot phone password

Thank you for your help Darkesthour00. After many hours searching the net, I found out how to bypass the password on site called Fixya.

 

1. Remove your at&t sim card and power up the phone.

2. Using the keypad, enter *2767*3855#.

3. Wait 10 - 15 seconds and the phone will reboot and the settings will be factory settings again.

4. Place your sim card back into the phone, power on ( don't need password anymore)

 

This worked, now I'm up and working again.

 

Thanks again, Mary

Re: Forgot phone password

Hey there! I actually had that problem with my SGH-A927 and I found this website called www.unblockbehold.com and a video on youtube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyPqyp_ibFg that explains it all. You can totally bypass your passcode but you have to be able to do this on a microsoft system

Re: Forgot phone password

Same problem. Forgot password on main screen to even get into anything on my Samsung SGH-A927, and I CANNOT use the code given on this post to reset my phone BECAUSE there are MORE digits in this code than you are allowed to even ENTER into the blank on the Passcode Screen....AND BECAUSE I get a pop-up every time that says "UNSUPPORTED CHARACTERS"....soooo, now what do I do????
