Unable to unlock my Android phone. Help?

My friend tried to unlock my phone and after several times, it said "too many pattern attempts" and requires me to sign in with my Google account. However, I typed the correct username and password, but it didn't work. My phone has no internet connection at the moment. How can I unlock my phone or turn on the internet connection?

My phone was made in China so you probably won't know the type.
