That is why I don't use a pass code/word to unlock my phone
With your phone turned off. Pull the battery out and reinsert it if needed.
Press and Hold "Volume Down" button
Press and Release the "Power" button (while still holding "Volume Down"
Your phone should now boot to a menu where you can choose Fastboot, Recovery, Clear Storage, or Simlock
Select Clear Storage by pressing the "Volume Down" button
Press the "Power" button
Confirm your decision with "Volume up" (Cancel with "Volume down")

Don't panic. Why not try Android Lost to unlock?
