Got locked out of my Sony Xperia L. I need to unlock it without losing all internal memory data and contacts?

I set a new swipe pattern and even confirmed it. But then I just forgot it entirely, when I tried unlocking it after a few hours. I've completely forgotten the patterns, I could have used as it was a bit tricky one. Can you help?. I have tried: Only, tried unlocking with several swipe patterns (in an attempt to recall the one I used). I think it was caused by: I forgot the new swipe pattern I set as it was a bit tricky and I did not use it in a few hours.

I need to transfer all of the data from my phone to my Mac before doing a factory reset?

Hello, I forgot my swipe pattern for my Android phone. I'm not locked out yet. I would like to transfer all of my data to my Mac desktop before I do a factory reset. Is this possible or is there a free download that is available for this endeavor? I have tried: I've tried a program from Sony, it won't do anything until I open my phone. The purpose of my doing this is because I can't remember my security pattern.. I think it was caused by: I set a lock pattern and can't remember it.

How to bypass or recover data from a locked Samsung Galaxy S5?

The same pattern I have always used all of a sudden did not work on my phone and locked me out. Then the passcode that had always work did not work (I have 2 attempts left). I tried to trouble shoot with the ADM and lock the phone with a new password and that password did not work either, now down to 1 try before factory reset. I have a TON of pictures, videos, memos, contacts, messages, etc that I CAN NOT lose and nothing is working. I need to retrieve all without losing any. I downloaded and purchased Dr. Phone's Android unlock and when I plugged in by phone is said not compatible for SM-900V which is supposed to be one of the ones supported. I am at a lose. My phone is still connected by Bluetooth so I can send messages from the watch and make calls, but I can not see anything inside my phone. Please help. Thank you.. I have tried: ADM and Dr. Phone. I think it was caused by: Unclear, just could not open out of no where
