Question [Q] Locked phone and I don't know the email !

Hello.
My brother locked my HTC Desire HD by entering the wrong pattern.
Now I have to sing in with my mail but I can't remember what mail was it.
Is there a way to check what mail is registered or just backup my contacts and than, I'll do a factory reset ?
NOTE: USB-Debugging is disabled and when I concect the phone to the PC it says Charge Only.
If' there's a way to root it with download mode or turn debuging mode on or backup contacts or find the registered E-Mail, please tell me because I have 1000+ contacts and they're not backed up on Google.
Thanks in advance.

If you synchronized ur contacts with google, then after a reset,your contacts would be sent right back to your device after signing in with that acount. If you dont remember that account then am afraid you are going to loose em.

I havent heard of a way to enable USB Debugging remotely. It can only be enabled from the device.

I can't remember what account I used. If I knew i could reset my password or install Lock Bypass from my PC on Play Store but I don't know it.
I can't afford to lose those contacts :/

Then your options are really limited. Unless....
This is going to be difficult as i havent tried it before but it might be possible.
What i would want you to do is flash a custom recovery and back up ur rom. Then send the file onto ur pc and extract the backup. And go through the data part, since your conacts are held by an apk called contacts storage.
I havent tried it before.
But it might work

I can't access my phone because it's not rooted and usb debuging is disabled so I can't put a custom recovery :/

Thumbs up Don't get Panic...

After reading all the conversation, what i was thinking is that, If you're not rooted then you must be on Android OS 2.3.5(last update) or lower. So you can do either login into all your Gmail accounts One by One and check which accounts has contacts sync with number which you were expecting not to loose. If you find that one then just click "Forget Password" on your device. They'll sent reset password to your account or else last option Hard Reset.

Where i found: http://everydaylife.globalpost.com/u...pts-34229.html

I think your answer lies somewhere on above link so try it. let us know.

I tried all the mails I can remember but non of the works :/
It doesn't give me a "forgot password" option :/
None on the methods in that link worked...
I'll try to do something with Android SDK and terminal when I put the phone in Fastboot mode because it's the only way that my PC recognizes my phone...
I'll let you know what I've done
