I purchased Samsung Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562 model phone 2-3 months ago. The person who sold me the phone, is not in contact with me and it was a new box piece. He himself set the gmail ID by creating it for me and he used a password, which I don't know. I was using the swipe to unlock feature in my mobile locking screen.
Now one of my friend tried to unlock the pattern without my permission to get access to my phone. But after many try, he locked my phone and now the unlocking screen says- "too many wrong attempts". There is an option to unlock the device is by entering the google ID and password. But I don't remember the password. Is there any other way to recover my device and unlock it without using the googl eID and password? I turned it off and on again and again but still no help.
Should I take it to the samsung store or service centre? Do I need it to connect to my PC via Samsung Kies software and reset the lock?
