No. not yet. We were advice by the customer service to wait if maybe the updates are not done. More than 12 hours, still the same. We are waiting for the phone to run out of charge so we can perhaps shut it down and turn it on again.

 

The thing is, mine is working after the updates and I did not have the problem because my homescreen is not yet password protected.

 

Since, his phone is just a little over a month and not much gonna lose, we have asked the customer service to assist us to reset his device. We tried google device manager but nothing happened. Although we got email from google that it will issue "erase content" once phone is not offline which is not the case because looks like phone still have ATTsignals and also connected to our  phone is our home wifi.

Unfortunately, we can not assist with the passcode, but I recommend trying your passcode again after the device has run out of charge and you recharge it.

I've been told 4 different things from Samsung chat not to mention the phone for support has been busy all day. An international company and the support rings busy?  How is this issues fixed without wiping my phone??? I've been told to "just wait it will be fixed very soon" stil nothing and now chat says I'll need to ship my phone to them to unlock it?

I was told Friday and Sunday they were working on it but today they act like they don’t know the issue I’m referring too!!! I am not amused!

  • I’ve been having the same issue since the June system update.  I’ve been told that many others are having the same issue and that Samsung is aware.  Can one of the moderators update us and let us know 1) that Samsung is aware of the issue and 2) the estimated timing for a fix?

Well if they are and do release a patch, how can the phone download it without being unlocked first? I'm afraid either way you will have to go a factory reset first.

Yes!  How do you fix it!?  I was on the phone for over 4 hours with AT&T, Samsung and Google.  I enter my password, the screen goes black then back to the screen asking for my password.  Everyone keeps saying they will have to swipe my phone.  Does anyone have a suggestion?

Hi There...

 

As of today, there's no other solution other than resetting the phone to factory reset. Aside from not issues on entering the password. We have noticed that although the phone is connected to internet, the phone is offline which support the fact that we cannot "ring" it using google device manager. But the phone can receive calls and text messages (only we can't read it).

 

As an initial assessment, I think this issue is connected to phones that are password protected since I have the same model and updated (July 4) on the same day.
