    • Hi, not all applications compatible with Samsung Galaxy Y, please make sure the requirement of that application is fit to this smartphone.

    • Hi, you can try to unlock or bypass Samsung Galaxy Y screen lock pattern protection using Gmail username and account. Please give several time wrong answer continuously until you phone freeze for several seconds, you will find Forgot Pattern button, press it to unlock or bypass forgotten security protection using Gmail account that you have already signed in before.

        • Hi, unfortunately for unlock forgotten security screen lock pattern protection need to use Internet data connection either with Wifi or with GSM provider. If you can not provide Internet network, then nothing you can do for save your data unless you have to do hard reset, sadly doing hard reset will remove all important data and installed applications.

          • For too many wrong pattern attempts , For security reasons it asks to login with your Google account username and Password, but if you are not connected to wifi , you are helpless,

            The below Can work in Samsung Galaxy
            1) On the screen where it asks for Google login , below you can find emergency Call tab , click on it
            2) Once in the Emergency Dial in , swipe the notification features on the Top,
            3) Once when in the notification screen you can turn on your wifi , and Wifi becomes enabled.
            4) Then you are good to go once connected to wifi, you can login through your Google Account and well you get unlocked,
            5) Provide a new or re-use your earlier Pattern !!

            If you don’t remember your Google Account then you have to do a Reset where you may lose your Data , try the below steps
            1) Press Volume Up + Home buttons simultaneously and without releasing these buttons press power button.
            2)Now select wipe data + factory reset when the Dark Screen appears like a DOS prompt
            On next screen select YES.
            This will erase all data and restore your phone to factory settings .Press volume up/down key to change the options and home button to select the option. This will rest your Phone !!

            Happy and Hopeful Wrong Pattern Hunting !!

    • Hi, if you get problem with Samsung Galaxy Y, then please try to hard reset using hardware button key with steps at #Option 2 above.

  1. I followed all the steps in formatting and hard reset but still my samsung galaxy Y keep on restarting so i cant be able to open my phone kindly help me pls…

    • Hi, if you have done the process to hard reset but your Samsung Galaxy Y still restarting by itself, then it must be something happen with your hardware and need to get further hardware check from Samsung authorize service center.

  2. Hi,
    just been given a galaxy y s5360 from a friend and he did a factory reset, but now I’m unable to use the camera or view photos, download music etc. as it says no sd card inserted and when I go into my files the same thing occurs although my friend says he never had a sd card and everything worked ok. has he deleted something that now needs to be reinstalled?
    Thanks in advance

    • Hi, basically if your Samsung Galaxy Young does still at standard conditions (without root or without custom rom), then the factory default operating system will be reinstall automatically after doing hard reset for factory data reset. Please try to hard reset again one more time. If the camera still can not work, then you have to test download other 3th party camera from Google Play Store to test your hardware camera still fine. We also suggest you to give MicroSD card for your Samsung Galaxy Y because the internal memory are really limited.

  3. i cant open my cellphone because of the pin code that I’ve set… i forgot the pin code. i’ve try all the options but my cellphone is still locked… when i tried to enter the first number of the pin code, it’s restarting by it self.. so can you please help me..

    • Hi, usually if you forgot pin lock, then you can try several time until your Samsung Galaxy Y freezing, but will not reset by itself, unless your phone get trouble. You should do hard reset with hardware button combination key to reformat the operating system of your Samsung Galaxy Y.

  4. Thanks for this. I knew we had to press 3 buttons for the reset. Others please note that you might have to really hold those buttons for a long time and keep it pressed even if it reboots. Then the Android will appear.

  5. its not working bcuz my gts5360 is bricked while doing its says failed ..i repeated the process in clock work mode to run my gt is there only one reinstall a new firmware is there is a another way like small size zip files…?

    • Hi, if your Samsung Galaxy Y has been bricks, then you can not use this standard procedure to fix your phone. Please consult with Samsung authorized service center for further help.
