Forgot lock pattern on android? Here’s a way to reset it.

  • Enter wrong pattern 5 times and wait for 30 seconds.
  • Select “Forgot pattern” and enter your gmail account username and password.
  • Make sure you use the same account that was used to activate the phone and double check the password by logging in to that Google account in a browser.
  • If you don’t have access to the original Gmail account, you will need to do a hard reset and loose your settings and apps on the phone. The data on the memory card will not be wiped though.
