    Android phone permanently locked after entering the wrong unlock patterns

    I forgot the phone unlock pattern and I tried entering the wrong unlock pattern. Now my android phone is permanently locked. Please suggest me a proper way by means of which I can fix this issue. It is an expensive phone that I purchased it only recently.

    You can not do anything.Only way is to provide exact lock pattern.You can do one thing that go to service centre.
    There tell your problem.They will ask few questions then they keep phone for sometime.At service centre they will definitely unlock your phone.
    Never try to provide that kind of password which is tricky.After providing password write it some where.SO,that you can remember if forget your password.

    Hi,
    You can unlock the phone which is permanently locked by two ways.
    1. You can switch OFF the phone and turn ON the phone using a Key combination which makes the phone to boot into the recovery menu if the phone has one. There you can navigate the recovery menu using the Volume keys and with the help of "Power Keys" you will be able to select an option as "Format\data wipe" which deletes everything in your and makes the settings to Factory defaults so that the phone will be unlocked and can be used.
    2. You can take the phone to an Authorized service center and then get the phone unlocked by the personals present there.
    Hope this Helps.

    Hello

    See if you have locked your device their would be a option enter your google id and password and you can reset your password

    If that doesnt work better visit a service center they can help you.

    Thank You

    Hello guest,
    Well, this is rather very frustrating, I can understand but dear, you should not have provided a tricky lock pattern which you forget. But no problem, you can go to the service centre to get this issue resolved. Thank You.

    hello,

    if the phone is permanently locked than reinstall the software again.
    it is the only solution.
    and input a lock pattern which is easy to remember from next time onward
