How to open my locked cellphone because of too many wrong password attempts?

My cellphone was locked because of too many wrong attempts. I remember the password, but when I enter my account it won't let me in. They say it's wrong but when I open my account on the computer it can open.

Your Android device may only unlock with the password it was most previously associated with before it was locked. In other words, if you updated your Google account password after the device was locked, you may need to enter the old password on your phone. Alternatively, your phone may not be connected to a wireless network. If that's the case, then you won't be able to log into your Google account since this method requires an internet connection to communicate with Google's servers. Of course, you may also be entering the wrong information on the phone even though your computer has it right; to make sure you have the right information, go here to recover it.

In either case, since your Google account information is correct but it's not unlocking your phone, you will need to perform a Factory Reset. Read through and follow the steps in this VisiHow article to learn how to perform a proper factory reset on your Android device. When the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the information so you won't have to perform a Factory Reset in the future if you forget your password again.

How to Hard Reset my BLU phone which has been locked due to too many wrong patterns?

I initially forgot the pattern on my BLU phone and wanted to hard reset it. But that doesn't seem to work. In spite of me holding down on the power+volume up keys simultaneously the phone still starts up as usual. It keeps asking me for my Google account after startup cause too many patterns have been put through. I do give my Google account but it says the username or password is incorrect when this is not so. I'm stuck right now and can't access any of the options.. I have tried: I've tried to unlock it numerous times cause I couldn't think of the pattern and this locked me out. After that I got the idea of a factory or hard reset and now this also doesn't seem to work.. I think it was caused by: My not remembering the pattern caused all of this
