How can I reset my Android phone completely and just start it over?
I don't remember my pattern code or my Gmail account info. I have an ex husband who is dead, and wanted me not to get into my phone, so he changed all the info on the phone.
You will need to perform a Factory Reset to completely restore the phone. This will remove the password lock and return the phone to its original settings. A Factory Reset is, in essence, a way for your phone to "start over." To learn how to perform a Factory Reset, follow the steps in this in-depth VisiHow article.

Please reference the link in the first answer provided in this Q&A, on how to Factory Reset your Android phone. That article includes detailed steps, screen shots, and a list of every possible pattern you can use to reset any Android phone that can be reset with hardware button presses.
However, keep in mind that some phones require a software reset. In such cases, you will need to contact the device manufacturer, and get them to email you the firmware update package. Additionally, they will provide you with a link to download a third party tool, that you will need to install on your computer in order to complete the installation.
