Here is how to unlock the device- note that it will also delete all the data on the device, but there is no other way to remove the lock:

Hold the power button down for 8 seconds to turn the phone off.
Once it is off:

Hold the home button and volume up together (don't let go of both).
Turn the phone on with the power button, and keep holding the power button until you see the Samsung Galaxy SII logo.
At this point release the power button only keeping the the home button and volume up pressed.
You will then see the stock recovery menu appear.

Release all the buttons.

Now use the volume up/volume down to select Factroy Reset, and use the Home button to approve your selection.
