Questions and Answers

I have forgotten my Google email address, what can I do to unlock my phone?

After several attempts with a wrong password to unlock the pattern screen, that is when my phone got locked.


Your phone is only temporarily locked when it is in this state. All you need to do is visit the Google Account Recovery portal, and you'll be asked a series of questions that will help establish your identity and ownership of the account. Once you've done that, you'll be able to reset your phone pattern and get back into your phone. Note that you will need internet access for this. If you do not have internet access, then you'll need to follow the other steps listed in the full guide, such as performing a Factory Reset or using the ADB to unlock or reset your pattern.
