If you have forgotten your Google account information, you can try to recover it by going to this Google website. Once you've retrieved your information, enter it into your Android phone by entering the wrong lockscreen pattern up to 20 times. Your phone will ask you for the information. As soon as you enter it, your phone will unlock, allowing you to remove or change the password to something you can remember. However, if you are unable to retrieve your Google account information, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset. A Factory Reset, as you may already know, wipes all of the data from your Android phone to bring it back to its original factory settings to unlock the phone so you can use it again. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow how-to guide. Once the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the information so you can unlock your device if you forget the pattern in the future. If you need a new Google account, go here to create one. In addition; be sure to write down the pattern with which you decide to lock your phone so that, in case you forget both the pattern and your Google account information, you can refer to the piece of paper to unlock your phone. Keep this piece of paper in a secure and safe place so it doesn't become stolen or lost.

How can I unlock my Plum tablet phone with internet turned OFF?

One of the kids at home tried to unlock my tablet and incorrectly draw the unlock pattern several times that the tablet gets locked and asked me to unlock it using my Google account. Unfortunately the internet connection was turned OFF before the tablet was locked. I know my Google account but cannot unlock the phone since there is no internet connection. Is there a possible solution for this?

My Android Tablet (Penta T-Pad IS70IX) has a pattern lock and we have forgotten it. What should we do?

My Android Tablet (Penta T-Pad IS70IX) has a pattern lock and we have forgotten it. What should we do? I tried the reset which removes all user data but it only shows "No" as the options, not allowing us to reset the tab. So what must be done for this?. I have tried: I have tried the reset by switching off the power of the tab, then I have pressed the power button and the volume button at the same time. But when I select the option that allows us to wipe user data, the options turn out to be "no" which won't allow me to reset the tab.. I think it was caused by: I think I am not able to reset the tab because of no user data like photos videos in the tab. The other things I cannot discern properly.
