To remove a pattern lock from your phone, you will need to be able to use your device. If you can't use your device because it's broken, you will need to call the manufacturer to schedule a repair.

If you can use your phone, there are a number of things you can try. Keep entering the wrong pattern until your phone prompts you to enter your Google account information; enter it, and your Tablet will unlock, allowing you to change the password. If you forgot your Google account information, you can try to unlock it here. If you can't recover the information, or if you never logged into a Google account, you will need to perform a Factory Reset. This will delete all of your phone's data, but it's the only way you can recover your device. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset, read this VisiHow guide.

I locked my Android Samsung Galaxy ace GT-S5830i?

One of my cousins tried too many pattern lock attempts and failed at all of them and had got my phone locked down temporarily. Now the only option that I can seem to do to open it is to enter my Google account credentials which I totally don't remember, since I had given them when I bought this phone 4 years back and I had changed to other accounts in the meantime. Can you please advise me if there is any other way I could unlock/open my phone and start using it again. Please. Thank you so much for your help.

My phone has locked me out. It's a fortnight old HTC One M9, but has been running very slow of late. Was told to factory reset it, went to reset page, then it locked up asking me for a pin number. Now I can't get a pin because they are sending it to me by text. How can I factory reset the phone?

How do I unlock my Nexus 7 when the pattern screen does not give me the option of "forgot pattern"?

I've tried resetting in my Google account and it gives me the tab to double click on my main screen, so I double clicked and it still brings up the pattern unlock screen with no option to "forgot pattern"
