Tips for android

If you forgot your unlock pattern, you can unlock by using

  1. mail address
  2. security question  

As this is an Android mobile, there is a very high chance that you are using your G-mail account on your mobile. If YES, you can easily unlock your phone or reset your pattern lock within seconds. Just hit the Forgot pattern button and enter your G-mail ID and the correct password.

This works around well as long as you are connected to the Internet. However, if your mobile is not connected to the web, you won’t be able to sign in to the G-mail account and utilize this method to unlock your device. That is when you need to install custom ROM.

And the second method to unlock is you need to set a security question and answer while setting the lock. So that whenever you forgot the unlock pattern you can simply unlock it by answering that security question.

3. Battery does not charge

checking points :

  • Socket providing power
  • The cord plugged in
  • The cable may be damaged
  • When charging from a USB port on a computer, ensure that the computer is turned on. Most computers don’t provide USB power when they’re turned off.
  • Some tablets may charge from a special cord, not the USB cable. Check to confirm that your tablet is able to take a charge from the USB cable.
