GMail password will let you unlock it.

If you set up Samsung Dive that might work too.

Can anyone explain what this is about? I'm baffled. What security pattern?

You can set up different ways to secure your Note unlock. Pattern is one of them.

Same: Gmail password can unlock your Note, it should prompt for "Forgotten Password" if you input the wrong password too many times, this will then link to Google and you can reset the password from there. I tried it on my 10.1 Note and the password resetting/unlocking process worked perfectly
