If you logged into a Google account, just enter the wrong password until your phone asks you for your Google account information. When you enter it, your device will unlock and allow you to change or remove the password. If you don't remember your Google information, go to this set to reset it. If that doesn't work, you will have to perform a Factory Reset. While this will delete all the data from your device, it's the only option you have to get back into your device. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, follow the steps in this in-depth VisiHow article.

When you say recovery button do you mean tapping Forgot Password? It should still bring up the option to use your Google Account. Maybe try again until you see the option. Otherwise, you will have to hard reset your device. You can do this with Sony's Xperia PC Companion if the buttons of your device are not responding to a hard reset.

You tripped the SIM lock. Did you swap out SIM cards? If so, put the previous SIM in your phone and deactivate the SIM lock. If you never set one up, try six "0"'s in a row which is usually the default. In the event that this is now not working, contact Sony and request a default password. Otherwise, you will have to install new ROM on the device.

My question about China mobile model af706?

Input power on password, I forgot my password, so what to do? Tell me the solution please

If you have a Google Account then use that when you select Forgot Password. Chinese mobile devices are frustrating to hard reset but you will be looking for eMMC in the Recovery Menu as the way to hard reset the device.
