Correct me if I am wrong. As I understand your question that you lost your mobile phone and you do not know your Google password and so as the same phone number for you to reset the password and to create a new one. There are two parts of your question that could be possible that you forgot your password to unlock the phone when you said list your mobile and do not know the Google password or you lost your phone somewhere.

If you lost your phone:

If you lost your phone somewhere else, if you have the GPS enabled to it. You can contact your network carrier and ask to track where it was, however they can only view it's last location. Lets just say that the phone was left in the first street and got turned off then it was move to a different place then your network carrier can only see the first street except if it was turned on to a different location then their server would record the new location. Chance of getting the back is a bit low, as we all know that electronic gadgets are somewhat considered as a "NEED" nowadays.

After you recover your password for the Google account. You need to go back to your phone then attempt to unlock the phone and it will ask for your Google or email address where you need to type it in. This will generate an email that will be sent to your email with the correct password to unlock the phone and reset your password then make a new one.

My Android mobile has been locked?

My Android mobile has been locked its is asking for Google account but my data connection is over so how could I get my mobile unlocked from Google account

If you are locked out of your device then you are going to need to perform the Hard Reset option on your device so that you can erase all information from your device to no longer have to use a password to get into your device.

Here is the button combination that you are going to need to use so that you can reset your device without your password and Google account:

-Power off your device

-Hold the volume keys to highlight the Factory Reset option

-Press the power button to make the selection to Factory Reset your device

-After this use your volume keys to highlight the reboot device

-Press the power button to make the selection to reboot your device

This will in fact help you to be able to erase all information from your device including your password you need to get into your device.
