i have forgotton my lock screen pattern, how do i get my gmail and password?


lock screen pattern and gmail password is not related. but if you forgot the lock pattern u can reset or disable it with gmail id and password. If you draw the incorrect pattern five times you will get a message press OK. u can see a new button on screen below the pattern named "forgot pattern?". Touch this button to reset or remove the pattern with gmail id and password.
