My itel phone locked me after forgetting patterns and I don't remember Gmail account password. What do I do?

I left it with my friend and now it's not working.

If you do not remember your Gmail account information you can find out this information by visiting www.gmail.com in order for you to be able to use the forgot username/password option on the site. This will help you regain your information to use on your device so that you can gain entry.
