How do I set up a used Android ZTE phone?

I purchased a used Android phone. When I turn it on after the factory reset has been performed, it asks for the previous Google account synced to the device. I do not have the seller's info. Did I just purchase an unusable phone?

There is a slim chance that you can bypass this anti-theft lock type, and you were sold an unusable smartphone. Android is storing something like a security key that survives hard reset and reflashing. An internet connection is required to authorize the device once you enter the correct Google account data. The system thinks that you are a "thief", making the smartphone worthless. However, security holes are found every once in a while. For example, ZTE Obsidian could be tricked by connecting to a WiFi hotspot. Then, tap the input field for your e-mail address. A keyboard will pop up. Tap and hold the "@" symbol. A cog will appear. Tap on it. Tap on "Languages". Press the back button. Hold the menu or recent applications button. Google will appear at the top. Tap on it. Type "Settings" and tap on the setting icon. Tap on "Backup & reset". Select "Factory reset the phone" and confirm it. This will remove the Google verification from some ZTE Obsidian models.

How to reset Samsung Galaxy Note2 Android phone?

Hi! My son has set up an application-based pattern lock for my old Galaxy Note2 phone and forgot his lock pattern. I have tried both the 'press off button and volume down/up simultaneously' and they didn't work. I don't mind losing all the data saved in the phone as long as I can reset it and use it as a new device. FYI, I never sync the phone with my Google account. Please give me advice. Thanks a lot!
