music magpie are offering me £112 for my old Samsung note 3 but won't accept it if PIN code lock screen is on.

My ex partner reset the PIN code but can't remember it. Says he's sure it's 0000 but it isn't working.

I'm desperate to sell my phone to musicmagpie - can anyone help me unlock my Note 3?? I've had 10 wrong attempts so far....

Follow the below steps if you forgot lock screen password.

Enter a wrong lock screen pattern five times (shouldn’t be hard if you don’t remember the correct one)

Select ‘Forgot Pattern’

Now you should be able to enter a backup PIN or your Google account login.

Enter either your backup PIN or your Google login.

Your phone should now be unlocked.

You can also follow Device Manager by Android steps

Ensure that you had enabled Android Device Manager as a device administrator under security settings before trying this.

On a computer or other mobile phone, visit: google.com/android/devicemanager

Sign in using your Google login details that you also used on your locked phone.

In the ADM interface, select the device you need to unlock (if it isn’t already selected).

Select ‘Lock’

In the appearing window, enter a temporary password. You don’t have to enter a recovery message. Now click ‘Lock’ again.

If it was successful, you should see a confirmation below the box with the buttons Ring, Lock and Erase.

On your phone you should now see a password field in which you should enter the temporary password. This should unlock your phone.

Now, before you go on with your life, go to your phone’s lock screen settings and disable the temporary password.
