How do I reset my samsung Galaxy Ace. Have used to many patten tries and the phone is now locked. Do not remember my mail and password.
Welcome to JustAnswer!

Can you please check at the back sticker under battery for phone model?
Remove the back cover and battery from your phone and look on the IMEI label. Your model number will be printed somewhere on this label.

What happened when you tried to perform procedure with holding home and power button?

Thanks!

When I hold the home and the power button the phone just returns to the page where it tells me I have tried to many pattens and wan't me to enter email and password.

Hi Evy,

Thanks for the reply.

Home and Power button are correct combination of buttons for resetting your phone. Please try to press and hold Home button first. After 5 seconds (while still holding Home button) press Power button. Keep holing buttons until screen shows up.

If that still doesn't work, please try to press and hold Menu and Power button at the same time.

Check the picture below to locate all buttons - click here


Please let me know if that works. If not, I'll provide you with the next step.

Hi Todd

It worked and I would like to rate you a smiley with Great service - but it is not possible. They tell me I have no access to the page.

Hey Evy, I'm glad that I could help.

I got notification that you already rated it - "Your customer rated: Great service".

Thanks for accepting. Take care.
