Questions and Answers

How do I unlock my phone after repeated pattern failed attempts?

I do not know the Gmail I signed up with it with and I need the data off of it so a Factory Reset is not an option.


Unfortunately, if you don't know your Google account information, your only option is to perform a Factory Reset. You can read this great VisiHow guide on how to perform a proper one. After you wipe your phone, be sure to log into your phone with a Google account with information that you can remember so you don't have to deal with factory resets due to a forgotten pattern again.
