Is your phone linked to Google? I know from personal expierence if you get the pin wrong a certain amount of times it will prompt you if you'd like to unlock using an alternate method, then it would ask you to log onto your Google account with your email and password. Other than that the only way I can think of you getting access your phone is doing a hard reset of the phone, but all of your data would be erased.

take it to your service provider

I'm sure someone will mention the forum rule of not helping with passwords and such if they want

Do a hardware factory reset. When you do that, after reinstalling, the OS will prompt you for the last Google account logged into it. That only requires your google account & password, which I assume you know. Afterwards you can setup a new PIN, Pattern or Fingerprint. 

Hope all your data is on the SD card or cloud-synced.

Been at least 2 months with the phone and not using fingerprint?


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Hopefully your backed shit up. FDR should solve the issue. Though it will delete anything on your phones internal memory.
