Hello donna,

 

If you had a pattern lock on your Android phone and you're having trouble retrieving your pattern lock your phone will ask you for your gmail account information.

 

You have 2 options from here:

 

1- You can either locate you gmail account by visiting http://www.gmail.com

 

Click on can't access your account? 

 

Here is the direct link:  https://www.google.com/accounts/recovery?continue=http%3A%2F%2Fmail.google.com%2Fmail%2F%3Fui%3Dhtml%26zy%3Dl&service=mail&ltmpl=default

 

If you don't remember you can click on Forgot your username and follow the instructions to retrieve your credentials.

 

Once retrieve use information to unlock your phone.

 

2- You can go ahead and master reset your phone back to factory settings

 

CAUTION: This will erase all current content on the device.

 

Here are the steps:

 

Turn off your phone, press and hold the Power key until you feel your smartphone vibrate and/or you see the Acer logo screen. Press and hold the volume up and volume down buttons. Use the volume up button to select “Clean boot: Yes”. Press the camera button to confirm.

 

I hope this helps,
