This is a common problem with most of ANDROID mobile users that, anybody (playing with their android phone) unlocking lock by drawing patterns many times , leading finally to a window to asking google account(which has given at the time of using play store) Username and Password.
I recently got this problem while my brother was unlocking with my HTC Explorer. If wrong pattern is entered for 5 times(HTC),20 times(Samsung), ANDROID Operating System locks your mobile with a “MANY PATTERN ATTEMPTS” message and asks for your Google Account ID & Password.
Now there are many reasons for which people cannot come out from this critical situation without solution
1> They don’t know their ID/Password.
2> The packet data is not activate, so if Id/password is also right but it doesn’t Unlock.
3> The Internet setting of Network Service Provide is not installed.
It was a hard time for me to swallow the truth that, MY PHONE WAS LOCKED, as the account in the phone was my friend. I search for the solution on GOOGLE , but found unuseful tricks for unlocking the phone. If you go to at any mobile shop they take 4$-10$ for some simple steps for unlocking it.
I will tell you some tricks(which the steps done by mobile specialist) for unlocking your phone. I have tried this technique on my phone. Probably it may work on all android devices.
NOTE: THIS METHOD INVOLVES DELETING ALL OFF ALL DATA OF YOUR PHONE(MEMORY CARD DOESN’T RESET),INCLUDING ALL INSTALLED APPLICATION AND ALL OF THE SETTINGS.
THIS IS FEW STEPS BELOW,

*Now you will see a screen displaying “
- Select the option ( wipe data) “FACTORY RESET” using the volume keys and power key.
- Select “yes” option using the same keys.
- After some time It will say that ‘the reset is done’.
- Now select reboot option .
- Congratulation your phone is unlocked.
