How To Factory Reset Samsung Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300

If you are a user of Samsung Galaxy Pocket GT-S5300 android OS based device and you use pattern or character device locking system for security, have you ever think what will happen if you forget your password? Well! I am asking this stupid question because today I got a problem same about this. My aunt's mobile locked by my 4 years younger sister by mistake. Now what?
I thought, whole OS flash have to be apply. I searched on internet about this problem and after surfing some troubleshooting forums and blogs I found a hard factory reset system. But one problem is, if you apply this hard reset on your device, it will remove your all personal data (i.e. contacts, messages, notes and calender entries). Anyway, I think its pretty better to reset factory settings rather than whole original OS flash.
