Logged in to device manager using gmail account. Over internet locked the phone and reset the password. Received the message on the phone that it is locked using android device manager. But when I try unlocking the screen using new pin it says 'wrong pin'. I do not want to loose data by resetting to factory setting. Can anyone help please.
