What to Do When You Forget Your Lock Pattern

Picture of What to Do When You Forget Your Lock Pattern

It's frustrating when you want to open your phone and you forgot your lock screen pattern. Getting your phone working again is pretty simple. I know two(2) ways to unlock it if you completely forgot how to unlock it. You can either use your Google account or hard reset your device. I will show you both.

This might not work for all phones as different phones have different designs especially later models (In this tutorial, my phone is running Gingerbread).

Additionally, you can go back to where you bought your device or to a professional but that will cost money; the ones I'm showing you are free.

Step 1: Use your google account

If you don't have data connection or internet access or if you don't have your Google account linked to your phone, then, you can skip this step.

- At the bottom right part of the screen, you'll see "Forgot Pattern" button.

- Tap it and it will ask you to enter your email and password.

- Type in the required information and tap "sign in" and you'll be redirected to Google play.

- There you'll see instructions. Just follow them and you'll be fine.

What if your data isn't enabled? Then you just need to hard reset your phone as mentioned above? No, you still have an option to reset the pattern without loosing data. I've given a way(in fact two methods) to reset the passcode without loosing any data. And also, for future safety, always enable debugging settings on your phone before you encounter such issues. Link->http://bit.ly/1D8RPqf
Also, what if you delete your files accidentally? There's an app to store all the dump files and through that you can recover any file you want. Check the link above for this too :) Hope this helps you guys.

My daughter locked me out of my phone. She is two and did it so many times that it bypassed the step to log into google. I now have a number pattern appearing. I don't remember setting up a number pattern. So I called Verizon, the rep there told me to log into Android Device Manager and I should be able to unlock it from there. So I did this. Now my phone is locked by Android Device Manager and come to find out I need to have the app Android Device Manager downloaded on my phone and enabled. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. So I have called, Samsung, google, every place I can think of and nobody can get my phone unlocked. I just got this phone and I haven't set up my back up to store my information and we just got back from a trip and I don't want to have to do a HARD restart and lose all my pictures. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME.
