How to unlock pattern lock of Grand prime without losing data?

Open the phone without the knowledge of phone owner

In order to unlock the phone without the owner of the phone knowing you would have to hard reset the phone. You could transfer the data first but with all the steps Google requires to restore the phone, the user would know. If you want to monitor their phone you should use a spy app like FlexiSpy Extreme which can be installed even with the password lock on the phone enabled.

How do I get into my Galaxy Grand prime?

Hi, I just got this phone off a friend and when I turned the device on its asking me to enter a mail/phone number previously setup up on the phone in order for me to continue to access my new phone. But there is one issue, I don't know the answer to that? So what do I do?

Since you received the phone from your friend, contact them and ask them for the details like the email account. This way you will be able to restore the phone access easily. Your other options can be found in Recover Android Device in case of Forgot password/pattern unlock an Android device which is a VisiHow article that has several methods to get your phone access restored even if you do not know the email of the previous owner.
