Questions and Answers

How can I unlock my phone? My phone is a Karbonn S5 Titanium?

I have a Gmail account, but my WiFi is turned off

Without WiFi access to your Karbonn S5, you will be unable to unlock it with your Gmail account wirelessly. You can try to plug it into your Laptop or PC, and attempt to access it that way, using your Google Account Recovery options. An alternate method that sometimes works is to try and access your phone in Safe Mode. This does not work for all devices, but you can try it. Follow these steps:
