Huawei phone

I was given a Huawei Ascend cell phone by a friend who had bought new phone. I was to insert new sim card. She forgot to tell me about the unclock screen function which is a wipe a pattern across dots on the screen. By the time I realised what was what, the phone now wants to use google account to sign in. I asked my friend to log in but she didn't/couldn't log in to google account. Is the phone able to be ressurrected or is it now junk?

Look on that sign-in screen there maybe a skip option. If you get passed that do a reset which will return it back to 'out of box state'.

You can reset the phone to stock by going into the recovery, you power down the device and then power it back on holding a combination of volume up+power button (https://www.youtube.com/watch-

Follow the set-up instructions and sign in /create your own google account.
