How to restore a pattern in my cell phone?

If by restore, you meant much like a forgot password option to remember what pattern you used, Android has no way of informing you that. If by any chance that you forgot your pattern, Android's way of letting you pass is by creating another pattern for your device. Unfortunately, you will have to know your Gmail account and password an you have to be connected to the internet via data connection or WiFi. If not, you will have to do a Hard Reset to be able to use it again. Do the following steps to perform a Factory Reset:

Or look for a reset button/hole (http://screencast.com/t/fzfGvTOTJlV)

  • release the power button when you see the logo
  • use volume buttons to scroll and power button to select

If you forgot your password, you can unlock it using your Gmail account. In case you also forgot the password for your Gmail account, you can also follow a link for forgotten passwords. This is generally easy to follow but it would require that you are connected to the internet to be able to unlock your device using this process.

How can I removed a registered name on my phone?

I bought a second hand my phone rain 2g, and it has a registered name of former owner of the phone and I want to removed it.

If you use a different SIM card, it would be able to somehow help in removing the registered name of the former owner. Otherwise, you would have to do it manually. There is a category under "settings" in which you can write your name and you can also choose if you'd like a called ID to reflect when you are calling another device. Just change that to your name as well as make adjustments to the related settings.
