How to recover my pattern on my Xperia Z2?

Hi, I have a Xperia Z2 Android Lollipop. I forgot my pattern and each time that I draw the wrong pattern, I don't see the forgot pattern button where I should write my Gmail information. Please help me, I don't want to lose my contacts and messages at all, I don't want to Factory Reset.

After at least 10 failed attempts but sometimes 20, there will be an option in your Pattern box that says Forgot Pattern/Password. You click on that and then can use your Google Account.

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.

Pattern recovery on Huawei Y511?

I forgot my phone pattern, Huawei Y511. How can I recover without factory reset. I have tried: Several patterns. I think it was caused by: Its now locked


The only way is to either use Screen Lock Bypass Pro or follow the steps for using Google to login. You would have to have a Google Account to login to Google Play on the PC and remotely install to your Huawei. If you Google Account synced once then it will be in your device list on Google Play. For instance, I keep all of my children's tablets plus my tablet and phone all in my Google Play Account so I can manage downloads remotely. I just once put my Google Account into the devices and it synced to my device list on Google Play. I remotely install apps this way to their devices.

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.
