Hello, I recently got a new phone. When trying to setup my gmail I had forgotten my password. I have attempted so many times that I believe I've been locked out of the account. Would you be able to assist to reset my password?

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

No

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

The number on file is an old number.
