Try Hard Resetting the phone.
Power off the phone.
Then turn on the phone by pressing both Power and Volume Up buttons together.
You will then get a screen which is the Recovery mode.
Use the Volume keys to move up and down the menu and use power button to select.
Now go to "Wipe Data/Factory reset "and select. Then select "delete all user data".
Once done, press "Reboot system now".

This should solve your pass code problem.
Using this procedure, you will lose all data on the phone.

Hope this is helpful.

If you have done a proper factory reset and not a soft reset! Then the default code is 1234! If this does not work then you have not done a factory reset!

Factory v chip codes

If you forget your passcode, you can view the locked TV without entering your passcode. This is done by pressing the number 9 and QV buttons on the remote TV control at the same time, when your
password is requested. This process temporarily unlocks the TV.
When entering the V-Chip Lock menu, this process deletes your old passcode and prompts you to enter a new passcode.

Unlock Samsung galaxy s5

Depends on what you mean by unlock...
Carrier unlock must be done by a carrier

Factory unlock requires a hard reset by turning off the phone. Then by holding the volume down button, the home button, and the power button until you see small blue lettering in the upper left corner of the screen. Then use the volume down button to navigate to wipe/reset, them push the power button. Wait for it to reset and reboot, them press the power button to finish. This will not unlock from carrier, but it will reset the phone to factory state removing all user data including any passwords / passcodes.

Food for thought... even if you unlock by carrier, you will be limited to what carrier you can use...if the phone is CDMA, you can only use it with other CDMA carriers. Same for GSM phones.

I need to unlock the passcode on iPhone without a computer

You can't Yvette. You either have to remember the passcode, or connect it to a computer and do a Factory Reset via iTunes. Doing a factory reset removes all data from the phone, but you can restore your data from iCloud or from the backup on the computer which you don't have.

If you can't remember a simple 4 digit passcode, I would suggest that you don't set one at all. Generally people set a number which is impossible to forget. I use the last 4 digits of a memorable phone number.

My granddaughters I phone 4 wont work. the 9 in her passcode isn't working.the 3 6 9 don't work so she has no phone.hope you can help

I'm sorry, but there is no way to bypass the passcode. Just only if you have a backup without this passcode. All unsaved date is lost if it isn't saved to iCloud.
To get back the iPhone you have to recover the last backup or do a factory reset - with losing all of your data.

I changed my password on my phone and cant remember it

If you forgot your iPhone passcode you can bypass the lock screen completely and reset the passcode by using iPhone recovery mode. This will get around a locked down iOS device that is stuck on the password screen, but there are some important considerations to take before proceeding.
Warning: This will require you to restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. That means you will lose all data on the device and be back to factory settings as if the device was brand new. This should be considered a last resort.
iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that is stuck on the passcode screen
USB cable to connect the device to a computer
Mac or Windows PC
Those are the core requirements, if you have those you can proceed to reset the missing passcode.
Bypass & Reset the iPhone Passcode
As mentioned above, this also will work on other iOS devices.
1.Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone, leave the other end connected to your Mac/PC
2.Launch iTunes
3.Press and hold the Home and Power button on the top of the iPhone to turn off the device
4.Press and continue to hold the Home button while you reconnect the USB cable to your iPhone, this will cause the iPhone to turn on
5.Continue to hold the Home button until an alert message in iTunes appears that an iPhone in recovery mode has been detected
This is the general message you will see:
Now that the iPhone is in recovery mode and has been detected by iTunes, you must restore the device:
From iTunes, look under the "Summary" tab
Click on the "Restore" button within iTunes
This will wipe all files, settings, and apps from the iPhone, including the passcode. When the restore is finished, the iPhone will be at the factory settings. At this point you can choose to start from scratch or to restore the iPhone from a backup that is either stored on the computer with iTunes, or by using an Apple ID and restoring from an iCloud backup. Both of those are very simple processes and you will have the option to do so once the device has been rebooted and is back at factory settings, where the initial setup screens will greet you.

How to reset password on iphone without itunes

If what you say is iPhone backup password, just with a computer and a tool, iPhone backup password will be reset.

iTunes Password Genius can run in Windows computer. What you need to do is run it on computer, add iTunes backup into it, and set password attack type for backup password recovery. Once all of these done, click "Recover" button is enough.

But if you want to change or disable iPhone backup password, you need to connect iPhone to computer and do that in iTunes.

If the password you say is iPhone passcode, factory reset iPhone is a method. You can reset a new password for iPhone after factory reset. However, all of things on iPhone have deleted too. Now restore iPhone from iTunes backup on computer is a best way. The backup password could be recovered with iTunes Password Genius.
