    Unhappy Locked out of my LG optimus android HELP :(

    I have no Idea how to get into my phone, I forgot my lock combo! I recently put one on my phone and now I can't remember it. I got this phone handed down to me from a friend she wiped it clean when she gave it to me, so I never had to set up a google account because I never had internet access on it even though it is an android. Is there any other way to bypass my stupid password with out logging into a google account it's connected with or am I just screwed :/

    Boot into recovery and wipe data, but if you have anything important saved in the phone's memory, prepare to lose it. The sdcard should remain untouched, not formatted.

    Also you could run Adb and mount the data partition and delete /data/?/? I don't know names exactly but titanium backup does it automatically you uninstall account and security settings. Like I said I forget names just read up on manually editing. Your /data and filenames you should just be able to delete your security profile you have to identify it first

    How to boot into recovery:
    1.) ...turn the phone OFF.
    2.) Hold the Home button, the Volume Down button, and the Power button. The LG logo will appear briefly, then go away.
    3.) After a second or two, you're in the phone's Recovery Mode.

    4. use the volume keys to select "Wipe Data/Factory Reset (i forget what it actually says)
    5. press either the Search key or Menu key.
    6. wait
    7. reboot the phone.

    I need help now. I'm doing everything that you guys are talking about Holding down the volume down button holding the power button and also holding the power button but it keeps bringing me to download mode instead of rebboot recovery. Can anyone help??

    it's a three-button combo, not two.
    home+vol down+power, hold all three until recovery starts.
    even if not rooted you can still wipe userdata factory reset in the stock recovery. phone'll be like new.

    1. Turn off the phone entirely.
    2. While holding the volume down and home buttons, press and hold the power button. You should see the LG logo, then a screen with some text.
    3. Using the volume keys, select something along the lines of "wipe user data" or "format data" (NOT sdcard or system). This may be inside a menu.
    4. Select this option using the menu or select key.
    5. ???
    6. Profit.
