Hi,

I'm sorry about the issue. Is it username and password ***** your wireless modem / router?

And/or do you need your wi-fi/wireless password ***** key?

Or is it something else?

What is the model of your wireless modem/router device?

Do you have a laptop / wireless computer that is currently connected via wireless? If so, does it have Windows xp, vista, or 7, 8, 10, or Mac?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you.

Google
Network Technician: Viet - Network Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

So you open your new phone, and it does not let you use it until you enter a google account right?

Do you remember the email address for your google account?

Please let me know. Thank you.

Network Technician: Viet - Network Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

If you try that gmail address for the Username and try any password ***** know / remember at the Gmail website http://www.gmail.com/, does it work or not?

Do you still have your old phone? If yes, are your contacts and pictures still on the old phone or not?

Please let me know. Thank you.

Network Technician: Viet - Network Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

Have you tried the Forgot password? option at the gmail.com website?

Did you have a password ***** pattern login for your old phone previously? If you plug the old broken phone to the computer, does it show up on the computer?

Please let me know. Thank you.

Hi there and welcome

A different expert here as your previous one has left the conversation

If your not able to pass these questions or the email contacts, then the automated tools will not be able to help you regain access Jose,

You will need to follow the manual process, it is the only option left in your situation.

You'll need a working email account so they can contact you on it. I advise to make a temporary one here.

https://accounts.google.com/SignUp?service=mail

Then go to this link and fill in the form please.

https://support.google.com/accounts/contact/disabled2?p=

You will then need to allow up to 24 hours for Google to contact you with the instructions to reset your password.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
