I remember reading once that you have to use @googlemail.com, not @gmail.com, if you lock yourself out. I don't know if that's ture, but does that help?

Hi,

I am not speaking from experience, but I believe there is a way to factory reset the phone (although you will loose any data).

Also, I just googled "unlock hero without google account" and their seems to be various things you can try but it does seem that lots of people have had issues with resetting using the google credentials.

Did you have wi-fi turned on when you locked your phone? or have a data plan? my phone got locked once when my friend was mucking around on it and I had to use the same account that I used when I set up my phone to unlock it (@gmail.com). Once you type that in, it goes online to verify the information.

As far as i know their is no other way of getting into your phone without using your gmail account.

You might have to speak to your service provider.

Hi!

I now reset my Hero, doing like this;

Battery out
Battery in
Hold down "home" and "backarrow" and push power button fast!

Phone now reboots and you will have the possiblility to push menu for reset your phone.


Another solution could be this, was in my indbox:

hi cannot post on forums atm coz my email is still not validiated.
Anyway, when you unlock you phone write your username: ex. user@googlemail.com and as password write null . (without dot )
