    Hi Friends,
    When you enter the wrong password a few times, you are supposed to get the forgot password option that I think takes you to the Gmail option to unlock your phone. But, what if the phone only makes you wait 30 seconds to re-enter your password but doesn´t give you the option to access your phone with that option. What would be the best option to reset the password using a google account? Thanks in advance.
