    Re: What to do after forgetting the unlock password in Android?

    following are the two ways that let you get ride of forgotten password or unlock pattern.
    1)in this method you have to enter five times wrong password so you can get forgotten password or something like that let popup.
    so you all need is enter your google password and again reenter another password for unlock screen.
    after that dont forget password.
    this is best way.
    2)you have to flash your mobile
    this is not good method however you may be get firmware upgrade by flashing from customer support.
    if you decided to flash you need to backup your all data.

    For this you have to firstly enter wrong password 5 times and then wait for 30 sec.
    And then select forget password option where you have to enter your Google Account detail.
    Before entering you have to connect your device to internet through WiFi.
    You can Turn ON your WiFi through sliding down your notification bar.
    After connecting to internet enter your Google Account and your device will be unlock.

    Your problem could be solved if you do few things.Many android users have faced such issue but there is way to overcome that.It is important that you have gmail id.

    Enter the incorrect password into your phone for exactly 5 times. This will prompt you wait for about 30 seconds. Tap the ‘OK’ button available in that prompt message. Go to the bottom right part of the screen afterwards and make a single tap on ‘Forgot pattern’ option. Then, you will be asked to enter the details of your Google account. At this moment, type in all the necessary details correctly. You will then redirect to the screen for setting new lock password. If you don’t need a lock password further, then tap the ‘Cancel’ button available in that screen. Otherwise, set up a new password and note down it. After that, you will get the unlock screen on your phone.
