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.
We've updated our guide, and it now includes steps for a paid app that will let you unlock your phone if the other steps don't work. The full guide is available by scrolling up to the top of this Q&A guide, and then clicking the title at the top of the page. This will open the full guide, where you will find a list of steps that will show you how to fix your problem.
These steps are listed in order from easiest to most difficult. There is even a link to perform a Factory Reset of your device if you find that you ultimately need to.
Don't forget to read our guides on using the Samsung Galaxy S4 too.
