Nowadays everyone who owns a smartphone has lots of data stored on it like documents, personal photographs, emails and other important contact. To protect all the information most of the users lock their phones using a lock pin or sometimes lock pattern. Access to your data on the phone is restricted by this locking mechanism. But what to do when you forget your pass phrase. Droid Razr owners can follow below steps to unlock their phone after forgetting the pass code.

Forgot your Lock Pattern

If you have forgotten your lock pattern and made 5 unsuccessful pattern attempts , touch ‘Forgot pattern‘ and enter your Gmail user name and password that you setup as your main Gmail account when you registered your device.
You can then create a new lock pattern and unlock your device.

Forgot your Pin or password

In case you’ve forgotten your Pin or password then there isn’t any password recovery mechanism. Only option left in that case is to reset your phone to factory settings. You can contact your service provider to follow the procedure.

To manually reset your Droid Razr to factory settings, touch Menu > Settings > Privacy > Factory Data Reset > Reset Phone.
