    Put in a new unlock pattern, then I forgot it. I know, bonehead move. Anyways, now its asking for my gmail and pw. I don't know them, I never used it once I set it up. Google has no customer service. Verizon says they can't help me. I need help.

    Have you forgotten your google user name completely? If so, your only option(I think) would be to boot into recovery and do a factory reset.

    When you signed up for a gmail account it probably asked for an alternate e-mail to send lost password info. Try to login via Gmail on a PC or laptop and follow the "Password/User-ID Recovery" options (The one marked "Can't access your account?").

    thats a security feature so people CANNOT access a phone that is locked.

    its locked for a reason.

    Something sounds fishy if you ask me.

    After 1,000 tries I remembered my username. So now that I have that I went onto gmail and changed my PW. Ok still have a problem the damn phone needs the original PW when I created the account.

    Oh yeah and it did ask for an alternate email, but you can choose to skip this option and I did, as I was very excited to have my new phone and wanted to get to using it.

    I think you may need to use the above suggestion.

    You're going to have to follow my instructions. There's not really an alternative, given the situation.

    Edit: This does sound kinda fishy, but if he's not the owner, then the owner will just call VZW and have the ESN locked.

    Pattern lock too many times = phone lockout

    THE PASSWORD RESET OPTION JUST PLAIN DOES NOT WORK

    I stupidly let my niece try and "break in" to my Droid X till it locked and demanded my Gmail password.

    I thought no big deal and typed:
    <username>
    <password>

    NOPE password 6 or 7 more times.

    Oh it must be...

    <username@gmail.com>
    <password>

    NOPE

    password 6 or 7 more times.

    Hummmm.... go to my laptop

    Log in to Gmail. Change password to something nice and easy. Go back to Droid X.


    <username> <password>.

    NOPE New easy password 3-4 more times NOPE!

    <username@gmail.com> <password>

    NOPE!! New easy password 3-4 more times NOPE!!!!!


    :icon_evil: :icon_evil: :icon_evil: :icon_evil: DANG IT TO HELL!!! :icon_evil: :icon_evil: :icon_evil: :icon_evil:

    Reset Phone. Full restore from backup. I was pretty pissed off about that.


    Now I am scared to lock up my phone via the pattern lock.

    I just locked up my phone and did the password reset with no issues. I would be more scared of letting your niece play with your device. =P
