    How to unlock or hard reset my Galaxy Nexus smart phone

    I have a hardtime to unlock or reset my galaxy nexus smart phone. This is the message "Too many pattern attemps and to unlock, sign in your google account" appeared on the screen.Therefore when I signed in with my google account with my correct password, then I got "invalid username or password" appeared. Here, I am very sure that email address and password that I entered is correct. I called Bell and they told me to hold the volume down button and pressed the power button and it wouldn't worked too. I am very desperated and hope anyone could help me.

    Thanks

    With the phone off, press and hold both volume buttons and the power button. The phone will boot into bootloader mode. Use the volume rockers to navigate to Recovery, and select with the Power button. You may get a screen here with an Android and exclamation mark rather than recovery. If that happens just press the volume and power buttons again and it should go into recovery where you can do a factory reset. I don't know that it will fix your sign in problems though.
