Hard Reset Tecno N3 to Remove Pattern Lock

If your tecno n3 is locked because you forgot your pattern lock or you can’t remember your google account password and username or due to one reason or the other. You need to hard reset your phone. Here is how to remove pattern lock and Google Account Lock in Tecno N3 using Hard Reset.

Removing Pattern Lock/Google Account Lock in Tecno N3 Using Hard Reset

To do this you need to enter the Android system recovery utility on tecno n3. Power off your phone first using the power button and remove the battery then insert it back.

– Press Volume UP + Power button for about 4 seconds

– Now release power button and keep pressing vol up until reset menu appears

You will see so many options there which includes: Reboot system now, apply update from sd card, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache partition. But what we are going to do is “Wipe data/factory reset” which is also known as hard reset. This cannot be undone.

Note: (Use the volume keys to scroll UP and DOWN) (Use the Power Button as your OK key).

– Scroll down and choose “Wipe data/factory reset”  by pressing the Power Button then, “Yes — delete all user data“. All your data / installed apps will be deleted.

Your tecno n3 will start Wiping data and Formatting data, when successfully done you should get this message “Data wipe complete”.

Reboot system now, press yes and your phone will restart.

That’s all! Its 100% working. Try it and thank me later. 😉

      it needs flashing! But first try this, 1. Remove your battery and memory card from the phone, then put the battery back after 5 minutes and switch it on.

      the default unlock code for Nokia is 1234, 12345 or 0000. If you try this 3 codes and it still doesn’t work then you need to flash your phone to remove the lock.
