I pressed too many patterns now what i have to do now


If you forget your pattern
  1. you will after 3 faulty attempts be unable to use the pattern to unlock it.
  2. Instead you are asked for your Google account and password (that is setup with the phone of course). This is where the problem starts.
For many, many users providing the username and password won't change a thing. For some people changing the password via a computer has worked but that is uncommon. Most people ends up with a very expensive paperweight. Have no fear, there are solutions to almost everything
1. Completely power off and power on your phone.
2. Right after you pass and just before the Verizon Wireless logo video ends, immediately tap on the home button extremely fast and repeatedly (at least 4-5 times per second). If the Emergency Call button pops up, click that every now and then (3-5 times) but keep tapping on the home button. During this process your phone may flash the password screen or keypad screen just a few times and your phone will seem to be lagging due to the tapping.
3. Keep tapping until you see your Android home buttons stay steady at the bottom. Voila, you're in your phone! If the emergency keypad constantly shows up or if it shows the Google account screen constantly, you have failed. The success rate can be around 15-50% so keep trying until it works. (You may want to grab a young phone-savvy guy or girl to do it if your fingers are too slow)
4. Find and run the Settings App and go to Accounts & Sync.
5. Under Manage Accounts, remove all accounts except your Google account.
6. Press your power button off and on and enter your correct Google account information.
7. It will ask for a new security pattern. Enter it twice and you are done!
This solution worked for me. If it does for you, please leave a comment with your carrier and phone model to let others know that it worked!
[METHOD 2]
I recommend the tapping method first but if that doesn't work or you don't have a home button, here is a different method to try pretty much based on the same concept. (again, will depend on app compatibility and may not work for all phones)
This method uses a free app called Screen Lock Bypass. (thanks to Michele for introducing this, [UPDATE: free version has been pulled off, only paid full version available which may or may not work on your phone. Try METHOD 3 first!]) Please use this at your own risk as I cannot be responsible for any of the results caused from using this app. Basically, you'll be using this app to bypass the screen lock and delete the other accounts blocking your Google username/password to accept.
1. Go to the Android Market download page on your desktop and install the app. (Yes, you are able to install apps using your desktop instead of your phone) Direct link:https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.thomascannon.screenlockbypass.fix (note: You need to login to the Android Market using your Google username and password that you used when you first set up your phone. This is the username and password that "should have" unlocked your phone in the first place.)
2. Select the phone you have (this is why you need to login with the right Google ID) and install the app. Wait about 5 minutes or restart your phone and wait a good amount of time for the app to fully install.
3. On the app instructions, it says to install any other app to trigger the Screen Lock Bypass app. I did not do this but for me, restarting the phone, waiting, soft off and on seemed to trigger it. (may have been triggered by a message though, this is the part where it unexpectedly blanked and disabled my screen for a good while.)
4. If it worked and bypassed the "too many pattern attempts" screen, go to phone Settings and then select Accounts & Sync.
5. Under Manage Accounts, remove all accounts except your Google account. (this should enable your Google username and password)
6. Go to Settings and select Applications, then Manage Applications.
7. Find Screen Lock Bypass and uninstall the app. (this will trigger the "too many pattern attempts" screen immediately)
8. Use your original Google username and password to finally unlock your phone properly.
9. Enter your new security pattern twice to finish!
If Method 2 worked for you, please leave your comments with your phone make and model to let us know!
[Method 3]
This was suggested by commenter Guru and has potential to work with all phones as it was claimed to work with the Galaxy S2.
Pre Condition: You remember the pattern and you remember your Google password and Android account is listed while using instructions below. Data services (Wi-Fi or mobile) should be enabled.
1. Using your computer, log into your Google account. You can verify your correct Google account using the Additional Tip at the bottom of this article.
2. Go to this link directly - https://accounts.google.com/IssuedAuthSubTokens OR click your Google e-mail on the top right corner, select Account settings, then hit "Visit the previous version of the Google accounts screen" towards the bottom, click "Authorizing applications & sites " under your Personal Settings > Security.
3. Under "Connected Sites, Apps & Services - "Revoke Access" of your Google Account with Android. You will see the screen showing "You have successfully revoked access to Full Account Access"
[Alternate for step 3 - If you have already signed up for 2-Step Authorization previously and are able to generate a new application-specific password at the bottom, go ahead and generate a new password and use that password to unlock your device]
4. Enter Gmail login and password on your phone. It will now accept your login details and will show a pattern screen. Enter the "correct" pattern and you can see the home screen.
Again, if this works for you, let us know!
Good Luck!

If you have forgotten the screen unlock pattern, you have up to five attempts to try and unlock your phone. If this fails, you can unlock HTC Inspire 4G by entering your Google Account user name and password.
  1. On the unlock screen, attempt to enter your unlock pattern five times.
  2. When prompted to wait for 30 seconds, tap OK.
  3. If the display goes off, press the POWER button to turn the display back on, and then press the bar on the lock screen and slide your finger down to unlock the screen.
  4. Tap the Forgot Pattern button in the lower right corner when it appears.
  5. Enter your Google Account name and password, and then tap Sign in.
You are then prompted to create a new screen unlock pattern. If you no longer want to use a screen unlock pattern to secure your phone, tap Cancel.
Follow that instruction step by step and if you success you get your HTC unlocked, remember read that instruction carefully, if you did wrong step you will not allowed to enter your google account.

TOO MANY PATTERN ATTEMPTS, GOOGLE PASSWORD UNKNOW, NEED MASTER RESET


Hello, tealey.
Unfortunately, there is no way to reset the pattern unlock without knowing your google account login information. To attempt to recover your google password:
1) Go to www.google.com, 2) Click on "Sign In" in the upper right corner, 3) Click on the "Can't access account?" link on the right side underneath the username and password fields.
If this works, great! Enter your recovered information and then you will be prompted to create a new unlock pattern.
If you are unable to recover your account information, you will need to do a factory reset on your phone. Sadly, because you didn't provide the make and model of your phone, I can't tell you how to do this, but a quick google search should be able to point you in the right direction.
Best of luck!

Remove security code with out restoriing phone to factory settings


Try this:
I refused to do that hard reset trash and erase all of my information. This method is also just in case you don't have anyone to call you or you're too impatient to wait:
This is inspired by the many posts that tell you to frequently press home while someone's calling.

1. I hit the emergency call button then repeatedly hit home (pic of the house) while opening and closing the phone and went to the home page. It worked repeatedly.
2. Then I went in and took off the pattern request in settings.
3. In settings, make sure Google sync is checked.
4. I changed my password on the computer in Google (with same account).
5. Wait some time 5-10 minutes or less (make sure you have internet service where you're located on your phone).
6. Then it will tell you to enter your password. Enter your new password.
7. Close your phone or hit the red power key.
8. The same locked screen will prompt you for your username and password again. Enter the new password and it will log you in.
9. It will tell you to put in your old pattern or put in a new pattern (I forgot? sorry).
10. Then, you can go into settings and security once you unlock and remove the pattern. You have to enter the old pattern to remove the security.

Try this too:

******This will work and you wont lose any data!!****** Get someone to call you. After answering, flip the screen open and shut repeatedly, tapping the "home" button every few flips. Eventually you'll drop through to your home screen. This may take a few tries.
Go into your security settings and disable the unlock pattern. You can now bypass the lockout just by opening the keyboard. Change the password on your account, which may be your Google Apps account if you have one. In a few moments, your phone will fail to sync with email and prompt you for a password. Enter the new password. You can now log in with the new password. Lock your screen, press menu to try unlocking it, and enter your new information. This should unlock your phone.
