Vodafone would be able to help out with locked SIM card pass codes but not device ones as far as I'm aware. 

This blog article from Android Central might help.

Did you sign in with Android device manager or Samsung cloud account?

Hi,

 

As this is one of the security protocols to safeguard the phone by being used by someone other than the owner  it isn't going to be simple to enter back into the phone. 

Try all the password connotations your aware of. 

If you have a Samsung Experience Store local then they maybe able to help. 

Or if you have a Carphone Warehouse local with a repair centre in then again they maybe able to help. 

I had a similar issue where my s7 edge wouldn't recognise my set up password after performing a Factory Reset.

One more tip, it's  highly recommended to backup the phone before factory reset as all the data will be deleted after that.

Try with this Dr.Fone for Android, it can help you unlock Samsung Galaxy and LG without the passcode, and no data loss.

If you have a Samsung account (and can remember the log in details) go into that on a laptop and chose the unlock my phone option.

 

I had the same issue a while ago when my fingerprint scanner failed and I had to enter the backup password and had no idea what it was......

Delete screen lock without losing data? The only way I know is Find My Mobile and tools, otherwise using the factory reset is the easiest way to bypass the forgotten Samsung lock screen.
