I got my Android and did a factory reset and I don't have access to the original email account and password to get into the phone?

Don't have access to the original email account and password to access the use of the phone. I have tried: I tried another email account and still didn't work. I think it was caused by: Didn't have access to original email account

How can we recover a hacked Gmail account whose recovery phone number and email has been changed?

My fiances has always been a victim of hacking which we believe is the handiwork of her ex.. The latest he did was send her copies of emails between me and her to her on WhatsApp just to show that he has hacked her account again. All efforts to recover the account has proved abortive as he changed the password, recovery email and recovery phone No.. Please is there anyway we can recover the account as Gmail would not allow us do that except the recovery code being sent to his phone No.

Can't remember original Gmail account used to set up my phone. After factory resetting it, how can I access it?

My Android Core Prime phone would not allow me to get past the Samsung screen after I did a factory reset. I can now get past the screen to where you select the language but it goes on to ask me for the Gmail account. I never use that account, so after I originally set this up, I have not done anything with that account. I don't even remember what account I used when I set it up. Now I can't get into my phone. How can I find out the original email account I used?. I have tried: On my PC, I entered all possible Gmail accounts I could think of possibly creating. I have even been able to reset the password. But when I enter it on my phone, it says I have to use the original one I used when setting up the phone. I think it was caused by: No usage of the Gmail account. Got the phone a while ago.

My Gmail account was in two places on my phone. I got rid of the one that wasn't getting updated, I keep getting this message that says it cannot connect to a server, and I was always getting notifications about failed messages. I want to reset everything so the whole thing is synced up and I can go straight to messenger, Gmail etc from my home screen notifications!
