How do you unlock an Android ZTE phone without a Google password or username?

I forgot the pattern. It's a old phone and it's not connected to the internet.

Without a Google account password or username or a connection to the internet, you will not be able to unlock a ZTE Android phone without performing a Factory Reset. As you may already know, a Factory Reset (also known as a Hard Reset) wipes all of your phone's data to bring it back to its original factory settings to remove the forgotten pattern so you can use it again. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your ZTE Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow how-to article. Once the reset is complete, your ZTE Android phone will be unlocked and you will be able to use it again. Be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the username and password so you can unlock your phone if you forget the pattern in the future. If you don't have a Google account, go here to create one. Additionally, be sure to write down the pattern you choose to lock your phone with on a piece of paper so you can refer to that in the future if you forget both the pattern and your Google account information. Keep the paper in a safe and secure place so it doesn't become lost or stolen.

Trying to switch to a better phone?

Already got my service on new phone, but to use it I need previous Gmail account. I have tried: Hard reset boot mobile.. I think it was caused by: Old owner put this on it

In this case you may use the next scenarios:

  • contact the previous owner and ask him to help you to reset the password;
  • flash an older or current firmware onto your phone by using tools tailored especially for your phone. You will also need to obtain the firmware ROMs;
  • using security flaws may help you, but they are often device- and Android-version-specific;
  • turn in the phone to the place where it has been bought or bring it to a service center for warranty or non-warranty repairs.

Phone was acting up, did a hard reset on it and can't remember my Google information to get into the phone, it's being asked to be able to access my phone again?

What should I do? I need to log into my phone but can't because I don't remember my Google account information.. I have tried: Everything I can think of as far as to forget password with Google and the send SMS to recover my password but did not work due to not having access to my phone. I think it was caused by: Can't remember password maybe?

I bought a ZTE zmax pro from a friend and am trying to factory reset it?

When I factory reset the phone it brings me back to a screen and asks me for the previous email associated with the phone is there any way around that so that I can put my own email in?

How do I log into another Google account if my ZTE won't let me return to home screen?

My phone was running slow so I did a factory reset, I've never had a SIM card and the Google account was my mom's and she switched to a new phone and a new Google account. I had the phone for about a year under her old account and when I factory reset it, the phone wants me to put in the Google account previously synced with the device in question I've been all over YouTube on my home computer trying to figure out ways to bypass it. I've got a way to access internet on the WiFi that I use but it won't let me return to the main home screen with all my app tabs and it won't let me change the Google account so I can login under another account. If you have any suggestions please let me know, much thanks. My phone won't let me factory reset or create a new account and the phone in questions are not like mine so I need more descriptive answers for my problem

My zten9132 has no settings option on my keyboard like should be under swift key and I can not get it FRP unlocked now?

How to move forward from here if it's not the right keyboard to perform my FRP bypass. I have tried: Looked under every option for another way or the settings button anywhere. I think it was caused by: Updated or wrong installed keyboard

Answer: sorry, but that means you do not have access to phone settings. It's not the keyboard, it's the phone. There is no settings app installed on the phone. I've gone through every tutorial on this and this phone is missing the settings app, so you can't go in and wipe all the previous data. A hard reset was done on the phone before a data wipe in the settings and this phone is locked as well. Don't know the previous owner, bought it second hand and it's not blacklisted or stolen according to the IMEI#. Just can't get past the FRP because there is no way to access settings. That must be written into the carrier's ROM. The only thing I can figure is to take it to boost mobile or sprint and let them reinstall the ROM.
