Hello and welcome aboard. Hopefully the below info will be helpful to you.



If you are talking about a screen lock password, then after a fixed number of incorrect entries your device should prompt you for the password for the gmail account the phone is registered to. If that doesn't work, shut off the device, log into the gmail account on a website and change the password using Google's Password Recovery.

Once the new password is confirmed, turn on the device and try using the new password. The above does rely on you having either 3G or WIFI enabled on your device, and if it's not, the only other solution would be a full factory reset!

I hope this helps!

Since the op stated that they bought the phone from someone else, and cannot get a hold of them again, they would certainly not know their google password. The only option is a factory reset.
