    I have been locked out of my phone. Kids played with the pattern and now the phone is asking for gmail account and password. I forgot password. Can't access phone. Do I have to do a hard factory reset and lose everything?

    If you know the gmail account, just do a password reset. Then use the new password on the phone, once it's been confirmed.

    If you don't know the gmail account name or used an alternate email at time of registering, then a factory reset is your only option. Sorry.
