Verizon guys factory reset my phone, I don't remember my Gmail account?

After my phone would no longer turn on, the Verizon guys factory reset my phone. It turns on now, but I have no idea what my Gmail account was that they gave me 7 years ago. The phone is locked on the screen asking me what my Gmail is. Help!

As long as you have had the same phone number for 7 years or remember the previous numbers, there is still hope. The Verizon guys who factory reset your phone just wiped out all the data, but this will not matter if you can at least use the phone number. In the future, right down these Google accounts somewhere in your home for situations like this.

I reset my phone. I connected to the internet and trying to complete the requirements, but I can not log in my Google account?

There is an option that 'This device is reset. To continue, sign in with Google account that was previously synced on this device'. Please help me out; I am worried a lot

There is no need to be worried. You can still recover your device through Google. The methods to do so are explained in the VisiHow article on this page. It may take a few attempts, but eventually, you will be able to sign into your device. If all else fails, you can find the Stock ROM for your device and flash your firmware which will allow you to log in with a new Google account.

How to bypass FRP settings on honor enjoy?

I tried the regular bypassing method for this device, but it is of no use. Please help me out as my phone is locked and I cannot use It. I have tried: FRP bypass by OTG disk, and I think it was caused by: Unknown reset

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

If the FRP bypass is not working, then your best option is to download new Stock ROM onto the device. The Lollipop 5.1 versions require new Stock ROM to bypass the security. Most likely your update was the Lollipop, and this is the reason for your phone not unlocking.
