Unfortunately, if you do not, in fact, know the password/pattern lock code to your device you are not going to be able to get into the device without having to perform a Hard Reset on the device to regain entry. The reasoning for the Hard Reset is to get rid of everything on your device and also allow you to be able to access the device without having to view the pattern unlock screen. This is a security measure just in case your device is stolen.

The below instructions will allow you to get back on the device but will cause all of your files to be deleted from the application:

-Power off your device

-Hold the volume up key + power button

-When the boot menu appears, release the buttons

-Use the volume keys to highlight the Factory Reset option

-Press the power button to make the selection

-This will cause your device to Hard Reset itself

-After confirming the Hard Reset on the device use your volume keys to highlight the reboot device option

-On this option press the power button to make the selection to reboot your device with its factory settings that are now on the device

You will not need to use the unlock pattern to be able to get into the device in order to allow you to be able to get into the device.
