I have forgotten my pattern haven't used it for some time now but unfortunately my main phone is now water damaged so I need to use this temporary.
I have done volume up and power button but factory reset keeps failing!?
I do manage to remember it yesterday but when I tried to change patern took to long to remember again and phone went to screen lock so yeah I'm back to square one i have properly attempted this now over 1000 times!.. Should I give up or could you help please?

@Charles150290 Unfortunately unless you remember the pattern there is no work around it’s a security thing and it’s doing it job. You can not factory reset it until you get into the device.

@Chris_B I don't know about Apple but you don't need to be in the device to factory reset.
Volume up home and power button should work.
If it isn't @Charles150290 have you tried connecting to your pc and doing it that way

Try turning the device off before you go into recovery.
