    Unlock Pattern not working in Samsung Galaxy Tab

    I think, I have forgotten the unlock pattern of my samsung galaxy Tab because it is not working now. I have tried several configuration but failed to find anything working. My Gmail ID is also not working on this device now. What should I do?

    As you forgot your pattern lock and also you said that gmail id is not working, just give few more tries
    to continue wrong efforts. at an instant, the OS will report 'attempts exceeded, enter with your gmail'.

    As you said your Gmail id is not working, it is because you are entering the corrct passwored. It does net
    required correct password. you need to enter at this point just enter your email address and in the textbox
    for password just give value as 'NULL'. this will instantly ask for new pattern lock and you are done.

    After that you can set your new pattern and remember that pattern. Your problem will be solved. I am
    attaching a video also for it, If you did not understand it then just goi through the video.

    Hi,
    In order to get past through the lockscreen there is one method which may help you. You have to keep the screen active when the device is booting so that the device does not get locked when you turn ON the device and then you can change the settings. Also you can try changing the password of your Google Account in any web browser and then again connect to internet and then try using the Google account to enter the device. If nothing is helping the only way to retrieve the device is to format the device you can do that by booting into recovery which mostly of the key combination Vol up+Power while booting the device, after doing this do a factory reset so that you will be able to get past the lockscreen.
    Hope this Helps.
