    Well, you're not screwed. First remove the battery for 30 seconds and put it back in and see if the phone reboots. If it ask you for gmail account, go to www.gmail.com, log in, and when it says forgot password retrieve it that way.

    Is this an unrooted phone? If so, and if no one here can help, a Verizon store or their 800# may be the best route. How long have you owned the phone is another piece of useful information.

    There are tools that will reset your phone but then it will want your gmail info again anyways.

    I am fairly certain the gmail part can be changed. It is my phone number that is associated with it so unless I am mistaken you could create a new gmail account and proceed down that path.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Except he doesn't recall the password or the userid...ouch.

    note: your userid will be your gmail email address....if that helps.
