Help!! Questions about account and data recovery so my old droid razr maxx was recently repaired from water damage thanks to a dedicated repairman who replaced parts destroyed by corrosion with parts from another droid. however, it has a pattern lock and i remembered the combination too late and so now i must enter in my google account info to unlock it i've been trying my best to remember the account info, but the phone itself does not have internet access nor a SIM card so i'm worried that even if i get it right it won't work. the phone number associated with the device is being used on a different phone. despite all this, i was told that the phone stores this account info on the device so i don't need a SIM card or internet access to unlock - is this true? also, i'm worried that the only option to unlock is a factory data reset. however, i have important text messages on that phone that i wanted to retrieve before i toss the phone away. what are my options for retrieving these? does data recovery software work for retrieving text messages after a factory data reset? and if it does, do i need internet access or a SIM card? one more thing i should mention is that the phone doesn't hold a charge - the battery needs to be charged externally to work. i don't know if this will make a difference either. i'm a total newbie at all this and i want to avoid going the mobile forensics route. i'm pretty upset that after all the effort to repair after water damage i'm being locked out like this any info would be much appreciated, thanks!!!
