If you've tried to enter your Google ID and Password, but are still unable to access your pattern locked Android phone or Tablet, there are several things you can try to unlock it. We've provided a number of solutions to your problem, listed below from the easiest to apply, to the most difficult.

  1. 1
    On certain Android devices, you can wait for the pattern lock timer to reset itself
    .
    In this case, after a set period of time, you can try your pattern again and should be able to regain access to your device.

  2. 2
    For most Android devices, you will need to enter your Google ID and Password
    .
    This is because the device will lock itself after 20 failed pattern attempts. As a security measure, it will then request your Google ID and Password. If the login information you are entering is not accepted by your device, you can use your computer or another device to connect to the Google Account Recovery tool, and reset your password there. For this to work, your phone will need to be connected to the internet, either through WiFi, or your phone's data plan. You will need to follow the instructions on the link provided above, which will enable you to reset the pattern on your Android device.

    For users who have previously installed the Android Debug Bridge (ADB), this can also be used to unlock your phone
    .
    To do this, in addition to having installed the ADB before locking your device, you will also need to have enabled USB Debug Mode on your phone. Detailed steps for this process can be viewed in our main guide on the topic. To access them, simply scroll to the top of this Q&A, and click on the title text 'Recover Android Device in case of Forgot password/pattern unlock an Android device'. This will take you to the main guide on accessing your device when it is locked. Once there, select Step 6 from the first numbered list, and follow the link for instructions on using the ADB tool to unlock your locked Android phone or Tablet.

    As a last resort, you can also perform a Factory Reset of your Android phone or Tablet
    .
    Please note that this will delete all data from your device, though your SD card will not be deleted. However, we do advise all users to remove their SD cards as an added precaution, to be sure that they will not lose data on the card. Alternatively, depending on the version of Android you are running, you can plug your phone into your computer, and copy your files, music, and pictures before deleting the phone data. Please follow this link for steps on how to factory reset your Android device.
    • Note that these instructions are applicable to all Android devices, though there are variations across different versions of the Android Operating System, and in some cases, manufacturer specific phones, such as the Huawei, or itel models. Otherwise, you should be able to regain access to all Android phones and tablets using these instructions. This includes the HTC One, Google Nexus, Samsung Galaxy, and Sony Xperia, among others.

My phone to itel1350 brand has a problem of low memory?

My itel1350 phone has a memory problem, and I am not sure what to do.

If your phone is full and has no more space, but you are sure the SD card still has space, you'll want to check and make sure that you are saving information to the SD card, and not the phone itself. However, if your phone has a physical problem with the memory, such as a defective card, or is regularly shutting off, you'll need to either Factory Reset it to correct this or take it to a mobile service center to have it repaired.
