    I restored my phone to a previous backup but don't remember the unlock pattern for that time, and it won't let me log in with my email and password..... anyone?

    Ooooooh.........this is a tough one, I'm really not sure and actually never thought about this.

    There was a security issue with the Droid but it could work to your advantage!!!

    Have someone call your phone, answer it and instead of hanging up press the back button and it should allow you into the phone

    Haven't had this issue myself, but I think if you incorrectly try a pattern enough times it will ask you to enter your log in information.

    1) create a new gmail account on the computer.
    2) call your cell phone with a different phone.
    3) answer your cell phone then hit the back button and it will take you to the home
    screen.
    4) turn on wifi so it can do data and voice at the same time (remember that the phone
    is still connected)
    5) go to Settings -> Location & Security and disable lock pattern (you'll need to
    enter to correct pattern previously set)
    6) go to Settings -> Accounts & Sync and click "Add Account" and add your newly
    created Gmail account.
    7) hang up the phone.
    8) turn the phone back on, at the lockout screen, enter your new Gmail account info
    and it should let you back in
    9) once the phone is unlocked, you can go in setting and remove the newly added Gmail
    account and keep the old one.
