How to unlock my cellphone when I forgot my secret pattern and my WiFi is turned off?

Last night I changed my secret pattern and turned my WiFi off because I receive notifications almost every hour. I do not want to log out all of my accounts.. so I just thought of turning off the WiFi and changed my secret pattern. Now I forgot what the pattern was..I kept on trying the similar patterns and unfortunately it got locked.. Now my cell phone needs my email and password.. I know my email and password, however, I need internet. My WiFi is off and I couldn't turn it on the WiFi unless I unlock my cell phone.
