What to Do When You Forget Your Lock Pattern

Picture of What to Do When You Forget Your Lock Pattern

This is intended for a Myphone a618. This might not work for all phones. If you can't open your android phone because you've forgotten your unlock pattern or any screen lock, you can still open your phone. I know two(2) ways to unlock it if you COMPLETELY forgot how to unlock it. You can either use your google account or ,if nothing works, hard reset your device. I will show you both.

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. After you entered those fields, tap "sign in" and you'll go to google play. There you'll see instructions. Just follow them and you'll be ok.

Step 2: Boot to Android System Recovery

If you don't have google account or data connection, this may be the only way but it will delete all information you have on your phone;eg. email accounts(if there are any), cache, installed apps(not built in), settings, and other info; but it will keep your music, pictures, videos, and other files. Hard reset will set your device to factory settings just like when you bought it.

You can start by powering off your device in any way you can.
Removing the sd is optional.(If you remove them, the apps you have on your sd card will still be there but it won't be installed so it wastes memory.)
Then turn it on while pressing volume down button.

Step 3: Hard Reset And Done

After you press the buttons in the previous step, an option will appear. Select "System Recovery" by pressing volume up.

Android System Recovery will be shown and select "wipe/factory data reset"(the 3rd option shown) by pressing volume down and select it by tapping on the left soft key (the key used for menu/options) after that, press home button to go back and select "reboot device" (1st option shown). And you're done. Just like when you bought it.

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.
