Phone locked with too many pattern attempts


Phone locked with too many pattern attempts. Can Koodo supply a username and password? i don't remember setting this up originally. It's not the same info I use to access the web account.

Koodo can't help you. I see you have an android phone and it's your Google Play store log-in information you need to put it. So the gmail email you used to sign up and password. If you can't remember, unfortunately you'll have to factory reset the phone.
Which phone do you have ? You will have to do a hard factory reset if you do not remember your gmail password as stated by Ahmad. Google your phone model and " hard factory reset " .

If Android OS, Press Volume Up and Power Button for 3 seconds until you get Android logo to reset it to Factory default settings.

You can't make a blanket statement about how to reset android phones. On the optimus one, it's home plus down volume plus power. On the HTC one V, it's down volume and power, on the optimus chat it's send plus down volume plus power. On the galaxy ace it's home and power. On the s2x it's volume up plus volume down plus power.

Google does not turn up a LG 400 b phone. Does the phone go by another name or model number?

you can reset the pattern lock by using the steps mentioned in this article: http://www.what-is.in/howto/reset-android-pattern-after-too-many-wrong-attempts.html

Thanks for the responses. I had to do a factory reset. Luckily, everything (except the apps) were backed up with the Samsung Kies software, so all was restored. Cheers!
