We can choose among the 5 different screen locks on T-Mobile Revvl 4 & 4+. The secondary screen locks are Fingerprint & Face Unlock.
It’s fine if you fail to unlock the screen with a secondary lock. There’s always a backup in the form of PIN, Pattern, or Password.
However, what to do if you’re locked out and you don’t remember the primary screen lock i.e the Pattern/PIN/Password?
In this post, we are going to learn how to bypass the lock screen on Revvl 4 & Revvl 4+ –
How to Factory Reset Revvl 4 without Password / How to bypass Revvl 4 Plus Lock Screen
You can see I’m locked out on my Revvl 4 Plus. I forgot the lock screen password.
On Revvl 4/4+, you cannot bypass the lock screen without doing a reset.
To perform a hard reset we need to power off the phone and put it into recovery mode.
Long-press the power button located on the right and select “Power off” as shown above.
Once the phone is off, press the Volume Up + Power button to turn on the phone.
As soon as “T Mobile Revvl 4+” appears on the screen, release both the keys.
This will bring you to the “Android Recovery” page.
In the recovery mode, we need to use the volume rocker and power button.
Move Down from “Reboot System now” to “Wipe data/Factory Reset” using the Volume down button.
Now, when you have reached the option “Wipe data/factory reset, hit the power button once to select this option.
Now, move down from “Cancel” to “Factory data reset” using the volume down key.
Press the power button twice to reset & then to reboot the phone.
The factory reset will take some time. We need to wait for a while.
After the reset, the phone has reached the “Hi there” screen of the Setup wizard.
Tap the “START” button to move ahead.
Now, connect to the internet using a Wifi network or Mobile data.
On the “Copy apps & data” page, select “Don’t copy” to proceed further.
This brings us to the lock screen password verification page.
We get one more option – “Use my Google account instead”. Select this option.
It’s asking to verify with your previously synced Google account on this device.
Sign in with your Google account and finish the setup wizard to reach the Revvl 4 home screen.
If you don’t remember the Google account credentials, then follow the below procedure to bypass Revvl 4 Google account using the latest hack –

Let’s choose the option “Fingerprint + PIN”.
I’ve set up 1234 as the screen PIN. Let’s use this new PIN to bypass the Google account.
There is no need to do the Fingerprint setup.
Use the back button and keep going back until your reach the first page of the Setup Wizard i.e. the “Hi there” page.
Hit the “START” button to move ahead.

We can skip the Google account setup as shown above.
Accept Google services terms and conditions.
Once again it’s asking for the PIN. Enter 1234 to move ahead.
Skip the Fingerprint setup. We can do it later.
Skip the Face unlock setup as well.
Set a time to install the system update automatically.
