Most Android tablets have an Android System Recovery. If your Tablet has it, you can factory data reset it to remove the lock. You can do it by following the steps below.

  • Turn your Tablet off.
  • Press and hold the following key combinations simultaneously on your Tablet to see if it has an Android System Recovery.
    • Volume up key and Power key
    • Volume up key, Home button and Power key **Volume up key, Volume down and Power key
  • Though many Android devices have this feature, there are few devices that don't have it. If your Tablet doesn't have it, your Tablet will require service.
  • But if you have successfully accessed the Android System Recovery, you can now Hard Reset your Tablet by navigating to "wipe data/Factory Reset" using any of your volume keys, then you can select it using either your home button or power button. *Choose "Yes" using your volume key and then select it and wait until data wipe is complete. *Choose "reboot system now" after factory data reset is done.
  • That's it. Your lock is now removed.

I don't know how to recover my phone's pattern?

As I don't have internet on my phone I am unable to access the Gmail account to unlock it. Please help me with it.

The Google account information recovery system is put into place in Android by Google to ensure that users who forget their passwords can still unlock their devices and put a new password on their phones without having to resort to performing a Factory Reset. Unfortunately, if you don't have an internet connection on your device, you will need to perform a Factory Reset by following the steps in this great VisiHow guide. When the reset is complete, be sure to keep your phone's internet settings on so you can use your Google account to unlock your device.
