How to unlock my Android phone without Google username and password credentials?

I forgot my unlock pattern on an older smartphone I had. I don't remember the details for the username and password (even though I tried the recovery options. It still doesn't recognize the combination). How else can I unlock it? I don't want to reset the phone.
