    You're SOL. Google might be able to help you, but I'd start on plan B if I were you.

    I assume you've tried the password recovery thru Google?

    Id say hard reset since there's nothing else I can think of to do.

    I cannot access my account - Gmail Help

    If you can't work it out from there, you will have to set up a new account. You will lose all your apps.

    If that does happen please remember in the future that this is a Google phone and everything revolves around Google and Gmail.

    Hard reset isn't going to help. They still need to sign into their gmail account. Hard reset isn't going to do any good at all. You will need to do a reset, it doesn't have to be a hard reset and it will happen when you set up your new gmail and Google account.

    Hook, if he creates a new gmail and the phone is locked dosnt he need the username and password that was attached to the phone originally anyway? Or could you just sign in with a newly created one?

    Then create a new one. You're SOL. How exactly do you forget your e-mail address?

    He can create a new account and use it, no problems. He'll lose his paid apps, but that's just how things go.

    Well thats no security if you ask me lol I could steal your phone and all I have to do to access all of your info is basically sign into any gmail account? All his info would still be on the phone and would end up syncing to the new gmail.

    No, it would be just like getting a new phone. He creates a new gmail account and password, enters the gmail account and a message will pop up warning him that the phone will do a factory data reset. He proceeds, the phone resets and that's his new account. He loses everything.

    I imagine he would also have to reprogram the phone as well. The ESN is tied into the phone number.
