My child locked his pad and can't remember his Gmail account?

My son locked his pad and can't remember his Gmail account to log in.

Go to Google Accounts Authority and try to recover his Google Account credentials. You should at least try that before you have to hard reset. My child got locked out and the first time I hard reset and she had to start all her game apps over again because she could not remember her login for those games. I made sure I put a dummy Gmail account on there and filed the credentials away and sure enough she did it again. I tested the Google Account Authority even though we had the password and it worked.

I erased all data to start again on my iPad and cannot remember my original password to get back into my iPad?

Its about 6 months since I used my iPad, recharged to let updates catch up. When I switched on I found I needed to erase all data and start again as it was so long since I used it. Now when I put password I thought was correct in, it doesn't give me the opportunity to reset my password. What to do?

If you have synced iTunes on a computer then all you have to do is connect to the PC. From the iTunes account on your PC, start a new Sync session. It may automatically begin syncing and you would not have to manually start the sync. Once the sync is done you will see an option to Update or Restore iPad. Choose the Restore.

How do I unlock a ZTE phone model number Z665C?

My son had a phone and left it at my house, he had a passcode to unlock the screen, he has since forgotten the password, and I would like to unlock the phone so I can activate it for me to use

Ask your son if he knows what his Google Account is for that phone. You can unlock it through the Google Account. Otherwise, since you want to use this phone for your use, just hard reset it so the phone is fresh for you to use.

It can take up to 20 attempts before you see the option to use your Google Account to log in. Keep attempting until you see that prompt. You can also try having someone call you and during that call, go into Settings and disable the pin lock.
