    • Hi, usually the Forgot Password / Pattern button will be appear after you give several time wrong answer continuously which can make your HTC ONE M7 become freeze about 30 seconds. Please find that button in the LCD carefully. If you still can not find that button, we suggest you to do soft reset / reboot by pressing and hold POWER button until the phone shutdown by itself. Hopefully you can find that button.
