Hi SW, I'd love to say this worked, but the option to set a new pin/password is not available to me.

Steps taken:

Phone located, presented with 3 options Play Sound, Lock, and Erase. Setting a new PIN is not listed as an option. I further selected Play Sound, then Lock thinking I might need to drill down a bit. Not there. I finally selected Lock phone hoping I might see it then, not there.

"Lock device and display message or phone number." No password reset. :-(

Phone has a working data plan and wifi - unless by attempting Recovery Mode it lost the connection. I'm looking at a sad little Android, lying down on his back with a red diamond bearing an ! text says No Command, Phone just restarted itself & the pattern screen is taunting me.

Ideas invited. Sharon

You can use google Android Device Manager.

https://www.google.com/android/find

Locate your device, and set a new pin/password.

With that you can unlock.

This only works though if your phone has a working data plan or connected to working WiFi.

Me again, I found a way in Google Security review to get to the Lock option with the password reset YEAH !!! I thought, until I saw:

"If you already have a screen lock, it will be used instead of the password you just set up."

ARE THEY KIDDING ??????
