  14. how to unlock citycall android mobile

  15. I recently got permanently locked out of my free sky android after too many incorrect pattern attempts. I’m currently at a screen that is requesting that I log in with my Gmail username and password. I haven’t logged into Gmail since I originally made the account, Since I knew for a fact that I wasn’t going to remember what the password was, I went onto my computer and changed the password. The new password is not being accepted which leads me to believe that it will only accept the password that was active when the phone was locked in the first place. i called the android company but they are telling me reset it through factory s and i can do that, it Because I have pictures and videos of my recent Prom and other precious documents on the phone, it makes it hard for me to accept a factory reset as my only option. Any help on this subject would be highly appreciated. Thank you.

    Are you saying to switch “off” my andriod? Your instructions say “First you will switch of your Android device.
    After switching of your android device, press your up volume button and Press It down.” Im just trying to make sure Im doing this right. Im at a last resort with my phone and I have everything in my phone, I am really hurt that I would have to delete all of my texts, pictures, documents, etc. If you can come up with another way aside from factory reset, that would be wonderful!
