    This phone is patterned locked, can't remember the pattern. It has a Droid mod that wasn't installed by me. I tried to do the hold 3 buttons or the volume up+power and all that but nothing will take me to the recovery menu. It just keeps starting up the normal way. Please help

    Welcome to Android Central! What do you mean by a "Droid mod"? Do you mean that someone else rooted the phone and installed a custom ROM? Is this your phone or somebody else's?

    If you don't know the pattern, we can't help you remember it. You could do a hardware key factory reset, but this would obviously wipe the phone. Doing a hardware key factory reset will also be considered unauthorized by the phone, and the phone will prompt you to enter the proper Google account and password associated with the phone. If it's your phone, that shouldn't be a problem. If you got this phone from somebody else, and they never properly removed their Google account, then you'd need their password. Here's a video on how to do a hardware key factory reset:
