    I tried my security pattern with my Huawei android phone too many times and now it is locked. How do I unlock it without losing data e.g. upgrading software

    Not using your phone or a screen lock.. I don't know your options. I would suggest asking in the Huawei sub forums. Here is a link to an overview of the sub forums here. http://androidforums.com/
    Just find your exact device on the list and click into that sub forum and ask in there. I'm sure there is something you can do. Good luck and welcome to Android Forums.

    Welcome to Android Forums! I think that requires a factory reset.

    Welcome to Android Forums!

    After too many failed attempts to unlock the phone, you should be prompted for the google account that the phone is linked to. Another option that works sometimes is to call yourself from another phone and without hanging up press home and then menu and see if you can disable the pattern lock.
