Hi I am using a tab only having power key?

Can you give me some hint to open it

If you have just the power key then, try pressing the power key for a while and see if it works. If it still does not work, then draw the wrong pattern 5 times and click on forgot password icon. After that, you will be directed to Gmail and over there click on "Forgot password". Answer your secret question and move on.

#1 locked out of phone #2 phone keeps shutting off and on?

Hi, the Samsung Galaxy 4S mini has a Password that has been changed and I wasn't aware of it. Now my phone has been locked for about 2 days now. I have been researching for ways to remove the lock. However most of those ideas involve resetting the whole phone, that is something that I do not want. (my friend referred me to this website.) The other Samsung Galaxy S3 mini automatically shuts off after its being turned on. Now it stays on with a white screen with the AT&T logo. So if there is any way of assisting let me know asap. Thank you

I have 1 attempt remaining at unlocking my S5?

I used up all the attempts on my fingerprint scan and then it asked for my pin. I entered it and it won't accept it. Maybe someone reset my pin. Where do I go to Google to sign on and change it? The links provided aren't working properly. I have tried: I have followed the link in this article and it is not working. Then it takes me to an I forgot my Google sign on or password - which I haven't. I don't know where to go next. I think it was caused by: My daughter "borrowed" my phone and may have changed the pin. I don't know for sure.
