When there is no recovery mode available (Gmail, backup pin, etc), you will need to Factory Reset the phone using a key combination. First turn off the phone, then press Volume Up, Home and Power buttons simultaneously. Wait until the Android logo appears, then use the Volume buttons to navigate. Choose Wipe Data/Factory Reset and confirm with the Power button. Your phone will reset, and the default operating system will be installed with custom settings and applications removed.
