My Phone is locked, and I forgot the pin code. I tried to reset password using Android device manager, but it failed, I can't unlock device with new changed password. But when sending Ring using ADM (Just to make sure it detects phone) it works fine.

I cannot remote wipe or hard reset because I want the data. Please suggest the way to recover the Phone storage?

PS: Phone isn't rooted, and is connected to WIFI.


  • No! phone isn't rooted. And by Phone data I meant Phone storage. Thanks. – Pratik Sep 27 '15 at 17:10
