Can you log into My Verizon on a laptop/desktop and chat with a Customer Service rep?  Or, call them at 800-922-0204 from someone else's phone?

When you log in to My Verizon select My Devices and a red Chat Now button should pop up, bottom right.  Other choices may also activate this Chat Now button.  Not sure if non-Account Owners or Account Managers will get this Chat Now option.

It looks like a factory reset might be the only way to unlock your phone, at least a Samsung Galaxy S5.  See this old post How do unlock my phone without a backup PIN?
