You will need to restore your previous username and password by visiting this Web page.

  • Restore your username. Click "I don't know my username" and "Continue". Select an option to either recover your username via an SMS, phone call, or recovery e-mail by selecting and entering those. Do not forget to enter your first name and surname. Pass the human test and click "Continue" to receive usernames registered to the recovery e-mail or the phone number.
  • Then, restore the password for the username or usernames. Go back to this Web page and click "I don't know my password". In the pop-up input line, enter the recovered e-mail address. Enter the last known password for your e-mail address. If you do not remember it, click "I don't know". Enter the recovery e-mail fully or click "Verify your identity" to be asked a series of security questions. This will allow you to reset the password for the account.
  • Use the recovered account username and password to enter your reset Android smartphone.

Not able login again after formatting the phone. Don't know the recovery email or number used by the owner?

We have formatted the phone Gionee and tried with different email ID of Gmail to enter into the phone, but it's only asking the previous email ID that was used for recovery. We have forgotten the recovery email ID and phone number. Not sure how to recover that email ID again?
