How to recover the forgotten pattern in XT 1068?

Forgot pattern in my Motorola G2


Click the OK when after 5 times the phone tells you that you are going to be locked out for 30 seconds. The lock will appear again and at the bottom right it will say Forgot Pattern. Click this to use your Google Account. If you can't remember it then use Google Accounts Recovery. Now during this time, if you get an incoming call try to answer it to see if you can go into settings and change the lock function to pin or disable completely. Many Motorola phones have this "security flaw" where you can access Settings and answer an incoming call without unlocking the screen.

I have tried: I have called AT&T and they have walked us through the steps of resetting the phone several times, it just won't let us go any further, even though we done all the steps

You need to access Google Accounts Recovery because there is an option to choose Forgot Password. Hopefully, he remembers his Security Question or you do since he is only 10 it is most likely life related. If a phone is ever refusing to hard reset with the keys, then pull the battery out for a while. Also, you will want to make sure the phone is charged to at least 70%. One thing you could try is calling him and seeing if he can answer the phone and go into Settings quickly to disable the lock. Now if you meant that you hard reset the phone and it is requesting the old Google Account. Try the trick posted above for the LG phone using Rootjunky. Watch this Youtube Tutorial if you get stuck on how to get into the phone.
