Thank you. I assume that your Grandmother has a google email address connected to the phone? If so, please provide the first part of the email address (just the part before the @ sign).

If she does, on a computer, please go to https://accounts.google.com/signin/recovery. Enter the complete email address and click Next. It will ask for the last password ***** you remember. Don't type anything there. Instead, please click on TRY ANOTHER WAY. You will then be asked to type in the full phone number. Type it in and click next. Follow the instructions on the screen to recieve a text or phone call with a code. DON"T CLOSE THE BROWSER WINDOW. When you have the code you'll need to type it in. Cick next again and you can enter the new password ***** times. You can now use the new password ***** the phone.
