Upon doing a factory/Hard Reset to your device, this will delete all data in your Android unit. But if you have made a backup before to a computer then you can restore those applications that has been deleted or download all the applications one by one.

You can use the link I have provided below in order to access your Gmail forgotten information so that you can successfully log back into your device without a problem.

https://accounts.google.com/RecoverAccount?fpOnly=1

The link above will direct you to Gmail account recovery so that you can recover your information and then log back into your device. Even if you do not have your full Gmail email address you can still use your other pieces of information to recover everything about your Gmail account.

I am not sure which LG Smart phone that you own. Anyhow, here is how you are going to reset the phone back to factory settings. Please remember that all data in the phone will be deleted and cannot be recovered except if you made a back up, you can also redownload the applications if you did not make a back up.

This steps is based from LG Lucid and may be different from your phone model:

1. Turn off the phone completely. Just take the battery out.

2. Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power button as well. You need to press and hold it for at east 20 seconds or less.

3. On your phone, it will ask you to reset it back to the manufacturer settings. Use the power button to select and wait till its done resetting.

Again, all data will be erased on your phone and the data that are installed and saved in the external SD will remain as it is. Here is how you reset a phone that is in Optimus line:

1. Turn off the phone by taking the battery out

2. Press and hold Volume down then the power button at the same time. When the soft keys lights up, simply tap it then wait for a vibration. When you feel it vibrates, let go of the buttons before you will see the LG logo on your screen.

3. Wait for the loading on your phone screen as it may take a couple of minutes then start configuring it like the first time you got the phone.

If you have an LG G2 phone. The steps maybe similar to the LG lucid but has a very slight difference See below:

1. Turn off the phone.

2. Press and hold Volume down the power button. Once you have the LG logo, let go of the power button but continue holding the volume down then press and hold the power again until you see a white screen with a message of resetting.

3. Press power button to confirm and press it again to start the reset and wait until it reboots.

I need to in fact tell you that with your current question understand that without knowing the pattern unlock or email information you are going to need to in fact perform a Hard Reset to get back into your device.

With Android devices you only have three options to get into your device which are in order below:

-Pattern or screen lock password

-Email address and password

-Hard reset

I understand you have ruled out the reset option so you are going to need to regaling your email information so that you will be able to unlock your device.
