I have a girl friend who uses a password to open her mobile.  Unfortunately she has forgotten the password.

Can any one recommend a shop who can 'unblock' the phone and how much?

Android or iOS? Encrypted or not? My iOS device is set to permanently erase and die after 10 failed attempts and my Android at 15 with everything on them encrypted. The devices destroy the internal encryption key and the device literally never works again when someone tries to brute force it. Hence all the specific faffing about with processes when selling a phone on to someone else. 

The FBI and NSA want to know the answer a lot more than your girlfriend. Consider it practically beyond difficult,  and probably impossible to even get it to factory reset state to at least use again, with iOS especially. No apple ID it's dead as a smelt. Forever.

If she doesn't mind losing all data on the phone she could have it reflashed and complete new software installed. This assumes an android phone. As usual ask at Tukcom, last time I did this it was 500 baht.

Thanks for the replies.

I did a google and they all ask you to get the IMEI1 of your phone by dialling *#06# and send this off with other info to a specialist company who for a fee will send you an email with a code which can be used to unlock the phone. This may take a few hours or several days depending on the phone.

As stated above , data will be lost.

The girl has been to Tukcom and is getting the work done.

Unlocking with the IMEI is removing the block on a phone placed by a phone company so you cannot use a SIM card with it. If the phone is locked because the password is lost it is not the same thing at all.

And as I said depending on brand and settings forcing it can render the phone permanently useless, especially iPhones. Dead as lead for good. iOS kills the hardware decryption module and at that point there is no recovery even by Apple.

Why do you think the DOJ wanted Apple to build a back door into phones or iOS? Because they cannot force their way in and Apple said pound salt. Modern Android will behave the same.
