    I lost my. LG Tribute 2 but recently found it again. But I forgot the pattern to unlock my screen. Is there a way to unlock it anyway?

    Next to you
    After numerous failed attempts, did it prompt you for your google log in?
    Perhaps this may shed some more light on your issue?

    I don't care if I lose everything in the phone, I'm going to put a new memory card in it anyway. But it won't let me do anything. The phone I'm using now has a broken screen and I just want to use my locked phone. I love my cheap little phone.

    when the LG was in service, did you register it with Google Manager?
    if so, then log into Google Manager via a PC and use it to reset the phone completely, ie FDR.

    then you can start all over again with the LG from scratch.

    this all presumes that​
    1. it was registered to Google Manager
    2. that you have inserted the SIM chip into that phone ( if no SIM in it, can't be accessed via the web as it won't have the proper ID )
