Usually you can reset them by holding down the power button and the volume button. If the device won't start with the options you need. You might have to hold 3 buttons down for it to work.
It's a factory reset or something similar when you find the right screen.

    Thank you Robert,
    Unfortunately this phone does not have volume button - its a very basic one. However, I have tried combination of few keys following your guide with no success.
    Thanks again for your input :)

SOURCE: reset usercode samsung sch-u940 {glyde}

MENU > SETTINGS AND TOOLS > PHONE SETTINGS > SECURITY > (Enter Your Password) (Default password is the last 4 digits of your phone number) > RESTORE DEFAULTS

WARNING: This will completely restore your phone back to factory defaults, if you intend to continue using your phone on your service, you will have to reactivate the phone using the *228 method. I do not know if this will incur charges or require any assitance from Verizon.

I had this problem before, You have to specify what type of USB settings you want. go to phone settings, then USB settings and pick from "PC Studio", "Ask on connection" or "Mass Storage".

SOURCE: i samsung highlight t749 security passcode reset

easiest way is to open up your dialer and type the following code: *2767*3855#
If you get the unlock password screen at boot up, try hitting the SOS in the bottom left, if it brings up the dial screen then type it in. It will reset the phone to factory settings and reset the password to 0000. You can then confirm this worked by going into menu/settings/reset settings/master reset. Then type in 0000 when prompted and again to verify. If your phone resets again then you know your password has been reset to factory default.
