How to Reset your pattern lock on Andriod Phones
Another issue in Android mobile phones is the strong security offered by pattern lock. pattern locks once set and put to ON mode, just give you few chances to get it right and unlock the mobile, and if unfortunately anybody forgets the pattern lock, what to do?Here are some steps how to reset your mobile phones when they get locked..
if you forgot your pattern lock, just give few more tries to continue wrong efforts. at an instant, the OS will report ‘attempts exceeded, enter with your gmail’. at this point just enter your email address and in the text box for password just give value as ‘NULL’. this will instantly ask for new pattern lock and you are done!
Another way to unlock your phone is…
1. switch off. Hold volume UP and power button and home button simultaneously. release home button (and press again) while still holding volume up and power button. A boot up screen will pop up. Use volume keys to select (reset and restore) press home button to select.
2.Once reset and the phone starts up again it will still show locked. Get another phone to call your phone. as soon as you swipe answer press back key (arrow key) (you gotta be quick) and the main home screen will come up!!! . press the left menu button and select settings and turn off pattern code then go to menu and factory reset the phone again.
