When on the screen with gmail and password theres a emergency call option, select it.
on the call screen press back, you have a split second to select settings.
do it again when you press back it should show your settings menu
you have to be quick and press security
do it again and you should see the require pattern option at the very top.
the next time your on that screen you have enter your pattern as quick as possible, and that should solve the problem.
this will take a few attempts and be very frustrating, but be patient and you wont have to wipe your phone
Thank you so much!! to every one else yuo must have alot of patients. i almost broke my phone i wanted to slam it on the wall from the irritation. This works even if you dnt have a shortcut on your home screen.
1) open slide, go to account info screen
2) go to emergency call (now heres where its frusterating BE PATIENT)
press the <- back key
3) very quickly press menu, Repeat 1 and 2 then hit security.
4) after this keep reapeting until you complete the patern removal.
the screen will quickly in a second keep going back to the slide screen keep repeating step 1,2. When the phone takes you back to the slide every time you repeat step 1 and 2 when you hit the bak botton the screen will be exactly where you left off.
what you got to go to is Menu, Settings, And Uncheck the (require pattern box) then the tricky and most hard part is entering your pattern You only have 1 second to do so.
*This only works if you know your pattern. My phone got locked because my nephew was messing with it.
