Customer Question
My Android phone has...

My Android phone has been locked by google. I had forgotten my password ***** I went to recover my account and the code they keep sending to the phone that is locked

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your email account on any other devices?

Yes the iPad I am using is open however when I put in my email it tells me it is not account associated with google. However I went to open a new google and it told me my email was already in use

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

Yes but they keep sending it to my phone that is locked so I can’t retriv it. I gave my husbands phone number and they send the code but when I try to use it on my phone for the code it says wrong password

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

And will not send the code to my email

I went to Verizon this morning and they could reset the phone but I would lose it all. When I turn on my cell it says welcom then checking info . then it says google this device was reset to continue sign in with. Google account that was previously synced on this devise. They ask for my email or number and it goes on on not giving me the code. I also found another account that was synced with mine.***@******.***. It needs to go away.

His email is***@******.***
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately, you will need a phone on your phone number to make this work.

There is a way to do this but it can take some time..

Go into your local cell phone carrier and ask for a loaner phone to be activated on your phone number then you can send a code to that number which you can use to reset your Gmail password ***** you can add that phone back to your account and use the new password.
