Most of users lock their mobile by using pattern lock.Pattern lock is a kind of lock in which you have to draw image by connecting  adjacent circles.You can browse your mobile only when you make right pattern.In case you draw wrong pattern ,you are asked to redraw the pattern.

If you add wrong pattern for more than 20 times then your phone get locked.Now you can’t try new pattern or use any other feature of mobile phone.Even you can’t make any call.In this case your phone is totally locked.

If WiFi or mobile data is Off on your mobile then you can’t authenticate online to unlock your device.You can enable WiFi as well as mobile data by connecting your mobile with Android Debug Bridge (ADB). This method requires USB Debugging feature enabled which is under ‘Developer options’ of your device.

Second solution to overcome “Too Many Pattern Attempts” problem is to format the mobile device.You need to make hard reset of your mobile to overcome pattern lock problem.For most of the Android devices ,you can hard reset the device by pressing POWER + VOLUME + HOME button simultaneously.Please remember that all your data (images ,music files , videos and contacts saved in mobile ) will lost during hard reset and your phone will be restored to factory setting.

Let me know if you didn’t find hard reset code/method for your mobile.I will find it for you.

    1. For Android phone users, in case you do not have the wifi or mobile data service on and your phone is locked for too many pattern attempts, you can try holding the power button key down and options will come up for you to choose whether to power off etc. Choose ‘Data Network Mode’ and your phone’s mobile data service will turn on. You may then login in your google account username and password with internet access. Do try and it worked for me
