Questions and Answers

My Huawei phone is pattern locked. How can I unlock it?

Ad

There is only one way you can unlock your Huawei phone now that it's locked with a pattern that you have forgotten. Enter the wrong pattern up to 20 times until your phone asks for your Google account information. When you enter the information, your phone will unlock to allow you to remove or change the pattern to something you can more easily remember. If you don't remember your Google account information, you can go to this website to try to recover it. If you are unable to recover your information, your phone doesn't ask for your Google account, or you never logged into one, to begin with, you will need to perform a Factory Reset on your Huawei phone. This will wipe all of your phone's data. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your device, read through and follow the steps in this highly-detailed VisiHow guide. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the password so you can unlock your device if you forget the pattern again. Additionally, write down the pattern you choose so you can refer to it if you ever forget it again.

I can't access my phone LGP705.. since it has blocked by kid she tried too many patterns?

Now it is asking for me to sign into Google account. I don't remember my username password also. Please give me the best access to my phone

The best access would be to use Google Accounts Recovery to regain the email and password that you forgot for your Google Account. If you have logged into Google Play from your PC then the email would be there to at least start with your Google Account email to get your password.

See if you can use Samsung's Find My Mobile to unlock your phone. Otherwise, attempt the lock code until you can unlock using your Google Account.

Can I recover access to my phone after too many mistakes of lock pattern without missing the information in it?

Somebody locked my phone after too many attempts of patterns to unlock it. I've already entered my Google account and correct password but it didn't work. I would not like to process a hard restart because I can't lose information that is in it.

What should I do?

Login on the PC into your Google Account. Under My Accounts go to Security and then Applications. Make sure that you do not have 2 step verification enabled as this would stop you from using your Google Account to unlock the phone. As long as your credentials are correct you will be able to unlock the phone with your Google Account.

How to unlock my LG G2 phone, tried multiple pattern times?

I have LG G2, a child tried the patterns so many times, now the mobile is locked and needs Google account

Use your Google Account. If you hard reset this phone, you will need to install new Stock ROM as with the Lollipop and Marshmallow OS, you will still need that Google Account assigned to the phone after a hard reset. Use Google Accounts Recovery if you have forgotten what your credentials were.

I don't know the lock pattern of my 14 years daughter's Samsung Duos phone?

Actually, my daughter also forgot both pattern and Google account. Please help me out.

Try Samsung's Find My Mobile if you registered there at some point. This can unlock your phone remotely. If that fails then use the Google Accounts Recovery methods with her to see if you can get that Google Account credential information back.

I have done unlocking with a wrong pattern many times. I can't access my phone, so it needs to sign in with Google account but the internet connection in my phone is off so I can't open my Google account

So it needs to sign in with Google account but the internet connection in my phone is off so I can't open my Google account

You will have to hard reset your phone. You could turn off your phone and then back on to see if you can quickly get it to connect to WiFi but that may be impossible depending on what device you have. Before you hard reset, try to backup the data from the phone with an OTG cable. This way you will not lose photos and contacts.

How to recover my phone without losing any data?

I've currently purchased a Samsung S3 Neo from a known person. But I didn't know the pattern lock/Gmail account info/Backup pin? How do I recover without factory reset and losing any data from this device?

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Use Samsung Kies to backup your data. Kies3 is the download that you want for a Samsung S3. If you downloaded any apps then your Google Account may be the one that it is requesting. Try that before you hard reset the phone.

How to get into my Timmy phone because I cannot remember the security code?

5.5 phablet swapped SIM card and the phone went into lock mode. I have tried: Factory reset after pressing power and volume up button. I think it was caused by: SIM change

Put the old SIM back in the phone and go to Settings to disable the SIM lock. If you can't use your old SIM, try 12345 as a lock code and call the carrier attached to the SIM if you still can't access the phone. Sometimes using your IMEI as the lock code also works.

Micromax unite 2 Phone locked after upgrading to Lollipop and using some security app?

My phone is MMX unite 2, I updated it to Lollipop by an official update and used a security app and I forgot the password, now after hard reset, it is still asking for the password. Help me please!

You probably used AVG Security and their Support Page has a way to change your password. If you did not use AVG then attempt until you see Forgot Password. Most likely it will give you the option of using your Google Account to access the MMX Unite 2.

Hi sir, I am so happy that you are going to help me, now I have my Huawei phone but I have forgotten my password?

For sure I have forgotten my password and I don't have Google account so what should I do, please

You had to use some sort of Google Account if you downloaded apps through Google Play. That would be your Google Account that you would use to unlock your Huawei phone. Otherwise, hard reset your Huawei device using Volume up and Power.
