    I have heard of a method where you call the phone and answer it. Then press home and it might get you back into it.

    Some workarounds to try before reading ahead:
    1. try entering null as password. (together with your google username) 2. try entering your username without @
    gmail.com



    3. Combine 1 and 2
    4. Call yourself from another phone, answer, without hanging up press the home button, then menu button, settings, try to disable pattern-lock
    5. Call yourself from another phone, answer, hang-up, directly after hanging up start pressing your buttons like a madman for <30-60 seconds ending with your home button (might take a while to get the timing right). Go into settings and disable pattern-lock.
    6. Try the normal recover password routine from GMail.com and start over from 1.
    7. Perform a factory reset. YOU WILL LOOSE all not-synced DATA (SD card will be left untouched).
    1-6 are possible workarounds, these doesn’t work for everyone but can be worth a try to avoid factory reset. 6. is what should work but hardly never does. 7 – The factory reset always work


    I can't think of a method right now. You will probably have to factory reset it. This might or might not remove some of the programming. It will change the APN settings causing you to lose MMS. If you're on the 45 plan, you might have to reconfigure that phone for that.
