Hi

Do you have Google/Gmail account and pass word with your phone to unlock?

If yes, you can try to unlock 10-15 times. You should get “Too Many Patterns Entered” screen, use your Google/Gmail account and pass word unlock your phone.

If not, we will have to reset your phone. This reset will erase all data on the phone.

Would you like to proceed?

There is no menu that appears that wipes/resets the data.

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

Did you remove the battery or turn off the phone and then hold the Volume Up + Call (Dial) + Power buttons?

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes, the only options are silent mode, airplane mode, power off and restart. I tried restart and it didn’t work.

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

If you see those options, select Power off. Your phone will turn off. Wait for 1 minute.

Then press and hold Volume Up + Call + Power buttons at the same time. Release the button when you see the phone vibrates and show the logo. You should see the menu to reset your phone.

No such menu is on this phone...isn’t there a code number that I can put in? I don’t care if the data is lost, just want the phone unlocked.

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

Please try to remove the back cover and remove the battery from your phone. Put it back and hold those 3 buttons (Volume Up, Call, and Power) until the logo comes up.

This combination is correct for your phone.

It does not work for this phone. Period.

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

Can I get your phone model number? Maybe yours is different version of Ascend.

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

No, didn't work; serial number 268435462602917121.

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

On your phone, what buttons do you see? Volume Up, Volume Down, Home (house icon), Menu (3 lines), Search (Magnify glass), Back (pointing back arrow), or other?

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

It has a volume up/down button on left side. A power button on top. It is a touch screen phone that is locked. When I do the volume up+power button a menu appears that can control volume, airplane mode, power off, and restart.

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

When you hold the Power button and see the options, select Power off.

Is your phone off now?



Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Yes

Android Device Expert: Nick H., Android Specialist replied 4 years ago

Now first locate the Volume Up, Menu (3 lines button) and Power button. Hold them for about 3-5 seconds or until your phone vibrates. Release them. Do you see a Recovery Menu now?
