I have a password on my phone (not a pin or pattern).
Is there a way to get this reset so that I don't loose all of my data?
I have tried my google account and it will ring my phone but doesn't seem to do anything to the password change.
I appreciate any help with this
Unfortunately there isn't any way I know of other than doing a master reset on your phone as long as your email has back up turned on even if you do a reset it will restore everything but the apps you have on your phone. I recommend taking a screenshot of the apps you have and send them to another phone so you can download them again. If your unable to do that when you log back in to the phone you can go back in the store and see all apps you have ever installed. I wish you the best of luck and hopefully you can remember the password so you don't have to reset your phone
Android unlocking is relatively easy, and there are many ways to unlock without losing data. If you enable USB debugging on your phone, you can use ADB (Android Debug Bridge) to remove password on Android phone. I used to use this method to solve it. Or use Android Device Manager.

Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
