Unable to log in my LG 4 phone it says account locked?

I need to unlock my phone so I can log in and use it. I don't want to lose data. I have tried: Powered down, got a username and change the password online. I think it was caused by: My grandson tried unlocking my normal passcode but reversed 2 numbers and phone is locked out at the account level

Is there a way to by-pass locked Google account on an LG model ls665?

I found this phone in a car that was being junked and looks in very good condition. I did not know the password so I proceeded to reset to factory settings, then tried to reprogram for my own use but I hit a wall, Apparently, the Google account is locked and can't go any further and again is there a way around this?

First of all, possession of lost property without an attempt to find the previous owner can cause troubles. Contact the carrier if there is a SIM card installed into the smartphone or with the IMEI number (for locked smartphones). Write a note to a local newspaper and contact the police, as some people report their lost or stolen items to the police. You can also use the trick described in this question-and-answer section to unlock the smartphone, locate any numbers on the smartphone, and contact the previous owner.

I have tried: Finding my Gmail details, unable. Set up another Gmail account to the mobile number, no joy!!. I think it was caused by: Unknown.

My son's phone is a ZTE and it is requiring a Google login that was originally used?

My husband set his phone up and doesn't remember his email or password he set the phone up with. I need to set it up fresh, with his current email address. I have tried: I did a factory reset. I think it was caused by: Looks like the email address that was used was a generic email that Google assigned. He has a true one now and I would like to change it to the good one

How do I bypass the Google account verification after my phone has been reset?

I did a complete factory reset of my Moto e LTE phone after someone secretly changed my password. I followed the expert's instructions and the phone's data was wiped out and everything was reset. I get to the screen where it says to type in a "previously used" Google account email and password - I have no record of which Google email or password I used when I originally got the phone (about a year ago!) - I have tried every possible email and password I do have in my records, and it will not accept any of them, it keeps dragging me back to the page where it asks for a formally used account - I can't get past that part of the setup. It says that the phone has been reset, but demands info on a previously used Google account which was used on the phone. Can't get past this! The "expert" told me that there is no way to bypass this part because of "security reasons" and couldn't help me anymore. Is there ANY possible way to get past this and get on my phone? Help!
