FAQs on How to Unlock Forgotten Pattern

For more information about how to unlock forgotten pattern, review the following questions that you may come across when you get locked out of your Android phone.

1. Will a factory data reset erase my SD card data?

No. Erasing content in an SD card will require formatting the SD card, itself. A factory data reset will only wipe data in the phone's internal memory.

2. Is there a universal code to unlock Android phones?

There's no single master pin to unlock Android phones as each is different to the phone depending on how it was configured. Android users have a SIM pin that is set by default to 0000 or 1234, and they can change the SIM card pin. But there's no universal master code to unlock Android phones.

3. Can data be transferred from a locked phone?

You can't access any information and data on your locked phone. You must first unlock the screen to transfer your data. So there's no way to transfer data from a locked phone.
