    This will delete everything from phone, so back everything up to computer and sim card. Then follow these steps.

    A hard reset will clear everything out of the phone and reset your password. To perform a hard reset on a samsung take out the battery and removve the sim card and power on the phone. when it comes back on dial *2767*3855#. The phone will go thourgh a reset process and when it comes back on take the battery out again and put your sim card back in and power on. It should be completely cleared including the security password.

    Thank you, Helping Hand!
    Your secret code worked. The reset process only took a few seconds. After I replaced the SIM and powered the phone back on, I was able to reset the phone password.
    Still don’t know what a PIN or PIN2 code is. :-S

    I don’t understand the folks who said it worked for them because the phone lock screen:
    1) will only accept 8 characters MAX
    2) does not recognize or support the “#” character.

    So that puts doubt in my mind about all of the “Wow, it worked great for me” responses. Meanwhile, does anyone have a REAL SOLUTION as to how to unlock (or reset) a Samsung Eternity if you’ve forgotten the password?

    Try to format the Hardware of your phone, if this doesn’t work, I think you have to flash it.
