Just found old phone today which I had misplaced over three years ago. Couldn't remember the model, but pretty sure it's a Droid Mini after a quick google search. Tried seven potential passcodes to unlock and now have three tries left before phone will factory reset. Phone no longer has mobile service and it seems wifi isn't turned on either. Any options for getting in?

Safest bet: reset the phone.

Yeah. My problem is this was in my pre-Google+ days. I have many photos that will be lost. I would like to access them if possible.

If the phone has a Micro-SD card in it, try putting the card in a card reader, either connected by USB or directly into your computer's "on board" card reader if it has one. If the photos are not there, try looking on google photos, since everything you had on Picasa was uploaded to photos when Google made the switch. Otherwise, try connecting the phone to your computer VIA usd, and attempt to pull off the files through ADB. If that does not work, either reset the phone or have DriveSavers or some other data recovery program / business recover the data for you if the photos are really that important.
