To use your Google account to unlock your device, you will need to be connected to the internet. If you left your connections enabled but you're just out of service, you should wait until you get back to an area of service so you can enter your Google account information. If you turned your connections off before it locked, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset. Your Google account will only work if you have an internet connection. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article.

My phone, a Micromax A36, is locked due to more wrong attempts to unlock the pattern?

There are a couple of things you can do to unlock your device. First, enter the wrong password 20 times until your phone asks for your Google account information. Enter it; your phone will unlock, allowing you to change or remove the password so you can use your phone again. If you don't remember your Google account information, go here to recover it. If you can't recover your information, or if you didn't log into a Google account in the first place, you will need to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your data. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Micromax A36, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. When the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the password so you won't have to perform another Factory Reset in the future if you forget your password.
