galaxy s2 swipe screen lock problem

Apologies if this has been asked before, had a quick look and can't find anything - had my s2 for about 17 months with no problem, decided today to remove the swipe screen lock from start page by turning it off in settings - now the swipe screen is still there and doesn't recognise my original swipe code and I can't access home screen, any ideas how I can sort this please ?

thanks Kenny

If you keep entering the wrong code enough times (10 I think) the phone will give you the option to sign in to your Google account. Once signed in it should reset the code.

Thanks - I got to 25 times and it decided to accept my original code !? - don't know what that was about but have now removed it from start up and phone is fine :-)

Re: galaxy s2 swipe screen lock problem

I've heard of others having the same problem when trying to remove the code lock so it must be a glitch in the software on some versions.....
