I opened my phone 2 days ago and it would not accept my password?

I have been locked out of my phone. It has decided not to accept my password. I have tried: Talked to Samsung who tried to do the ADM Google password reset but it didn't work. I talked to the carrier and they want to wipe the phone. I don't want to do that. I think it was caused by: Google

If you reset your password through Android Device Manager, you will be locked out from using the new password for 72 hours. Login to your Google Account on the PC. Go to My Account and then Security. There will be a section on 2-Step verification. Make sure that it is disabled. This would stop you from using your Google Account to bypass a pinlock even with a password change.

Also, I am surprised that Samsung did not recommend their Find My Mobile website. If you ever set up a Samsung Account on the device, you could remotely unlock it from Find My Mobile.

I forgot my Sony Ericsson SI 1253 9492 pattern and Google account?

I need master Google account and maiden name


Well you will need those to gain that Google Account even after a hard reset. This Youtube Tutorial shows you how to bypass a Google FRP after hard reset. It is for the Z5 but should work on your Sony device as well.
