Basically if you set a password on the device there isnt any way for someone to give you the password or tell you where to find it because that is a security option and if it could be bypassed or recovered that easy it wouldnt be a security feature...  

The only way other than a hard reset is to try unlock about 4 times I think and then it will ask for email address and password for your gmail account and with this information you can unlock the device...

didn't you have to have setup gmail password recovery to actually use it?

There isnt any special features that need to be setup, as long as you set up your Gmail account.

looks like you do.

Recovery email address

You don't have to provide a recovery email address, but we strongly encourage you to. Once you've started using Google as a signed-in user, we'll use your recovery email address to communicate with you under the following circumstances:

  • We need to confirm your username after you create an address
  • You can't sign in to Google
  • You've forgotten your password
  • You're about to run out of storage space
  • We need to alert you to any unusual activity involving your address

If you use Gmail, you may have added a recovery email address to your account when you first signed up. If you don't use Gmail, your password recovery address is the email address you used to sign up for your account (for example: myusername@yahoo.com)

You are correct, I did not think that you meant that when you said recovery email address because I set that up automatically so long ago I never thought about it anymore.
