What is the brand and model number of your phone?

Expert:  Pete replied 4 days ago.

Based on the information you have provided so far, you will need to try a factory reset of the phone which will erase everything on it.

You can then recover the phone and set a new PIN number.

Please let me know the brand and model number of your phone if you need further assistance with this.
