Android Phone Is Permanently Locked

"I have a Sony Xperia Z1 and like it very much. Now the screen is permanently locked, because I forgot the PIN! I feel so horrible, and blamed myself a thousand times after multiple attempts to unlock the phone, but no avail. This is an emergency, right? Please share a feasible solution that I can get into locked Android phone without losing data saved in it, especially the contact list."

It sucks when forgot your Android phone password, you can no longer access to the data inside unless you remind of the pattern, PIN or the complex password. Setting password was meant to lock the phone when you don't play it, adding a layer of security so that others can't easily view your phone content without your permission.

Now it seems a little bit late to tell you not to change pattern, password or pin frequently, if you do so then always remember to take a note somewhere. Since the password is set by yourself, only you can unlock it until pick up the memory. Are you freaked out? Good luck for you arriving at this page, and there is still a workaround to recover data from locked Android devices.
