My pin is not working with my Moto G running 4.4.2/3 and when I enter the password it fails after 5 attempts?

When I enter the password it fails After 5 attempts. It does not offer the option to unlock by signing into Gmail, it recycles to let me try and log in again after 30 seconds. I am stuck in a loop. I tried going into recovery mode, and doing a Factory Reset, but that is not working either. I can see the device in Google device manager and I can get it to ring remotely but it won't setup the Setup Lock & erase options remotely. Any suggestions?

Make sure that you do the following to perform a Hard Reset:

  • turn off your Moto G
  • press the following:

Volume down for 3 seconds

power key (then release)

  • your phone will display "boot options"
  • use volume down to scroll and volume up to choose
  • choose recovery
  • phone will reboot and you will see an Android with exclamation mark
  • press volume up for 15 seconds and tap the power button
  • you will now see additional menu options that will appear in blue text
  • choose wipe data/Factory Reset
  • choose yes--delete all user data
  • confirm reboot

What to do when forgotting pattern and phone not accepting email/password combo?

I recently found my old HTC Eris (Came out in 2010) and I really wanted to get into it to see my old pictures. I could not remember the pattern and was eventually locked out after trying 15 times. It asked me to enter my Google log in information. When I entered my up to date information it said that it was wrong when I know that I am entering it correctly. I assume the phone can not connect to the internet to get that my password has been updated and I do not remember my password from 6 years ago. Is there any way for me to get into my phone?
