Question about Samsung Cell Phones
You can get the unlock code by contacting your current service provider customer care department. If your phone is locked you can use any of your friends phone to make this call. The service provider will then provide you the unlocking codes.
Remember that the reason why the codes are provided only through customer service provider is that, they will make a check on your name and identity proof at the time of your call. If the information is found to be correct and matching with their data then you will be provided with the codes. Everything is done for free of cost and you are not going to be charged for this process.This is the universal solution and is useful for many customers who are facing these kind of problems. Don't believe in any websites which provides unlock codes. All are fake. Only your service provider can provide these codes.
Another alternative is, you can take the phone to any authorize phone service center to help unlock the phone, because to unlock your phone, you will need some kind of software, USB cable etc to reset the phone, so you can also go a nearby phone service center to unlock the phone, but calling your network service provider is the best because they have the records of your phone and can easily help to unlock it. This are the two reliable means you can unlock your phone.

As you said,
> Menu (Home Key) > Applications > Settings > Location and Security > Require Pattern < Screen Unlock Pattern check box should be selectable or de-selectable. But if this doesn't work, then there's must be something wrong with the system files, like software/o.s corrupted, or some other applications already deactivated or some malwares have infected. It could be Java script problem as well, since almost all the programs/applications/features are running through Java.
The only possible trick you can try is "Phone Reset" but be sure, data saved on your phone will be lost at every reset attempt. There are several reset and all reset codes don't work on all models. I am giving you the most common codes:
Hard Reset Codes:
*2767*688# or *2767*2878#
*2767*JAVA# Java Reset and (Deletes all Java Midlets)
*2767*MEDIA# Reset Media (Deletes All Sounds and Pics)
*2767*WAP# Wap Reset
*2767*CUST# Reset Custom EEPR0M
*2767*FULL# Reset Full EEPR0M (Caution)
For example : *2767*JAVA# would be keyed in as *2767*5282#
