In order for you to reset the password/pattern and not delete data, you will need to provide the Gmail account and password you used to connect to Google Play store. You also need to be connected via WiFi or data connection to be able to reset your password/pattern. If not, the only way to be able to use your phone is by doing a Factory Reset. You will have to do the following:

On your device if you insert your password incorrectly multiple times then the device will ask you for your Gmail address and password.
