    I forgot the password to a Huawei Ascend P6. And it's not the pattern lock. If there is any way I can reset it or unlock it, please tell me. Btw, the phone is connected to Wi-Fi and even signed into a Google Account.

    After a few missed attempts, it should ask you to enter your Google Account credentials. That will unlock the device and let you change your password. Are you seeing that option?

    I haven't used an Ascend so I don't know if this is included in your firmware, but if you have Android Device Manager enabled you can change your pin here:

    Since I forgot the password, I tried entering the password too many times to hopefully get the option of using the Google Account. But it just says, "Try again in 30 seconds".

    I tried this. But I can only Ring the phone, since nothing else is setup.

    Well, you can look up the app AndroidLost. Decide if you are ok with giving this app permissions, etc. If you are, you can remotely install the app and then send an sms to activate it. Once activated I believe you can send an sms to change the pin. You may need to go to their website for instructions on how to activate it with the screen locked.

    Edit: Not sure if it's been fixed or not but I see the remote activation of the app was broken by a Google API change end of July. The dev was looking for a fix at that time. Hopefully, they found a new way to do it.
