Default Wrong unlock pattern, can't unlock

OK, I've entered a wrong pattern too many times. The phone now asks for my gmail username and password.

I tried to enter them, but it doesn't accept the credentials. They are certainly valid, I know because I logged in via web browser with the same name/pass and it works.

What should I do now?

Found a solution after some googling.

Enter "null" in the password field and the phone allows you to reset the pattern.

Man, I was ready to throw it into the wall...

This solves my problem, but think about it, it's also a security hole. Anyone can
take your "unlock pattern protected" phone, type in "null" and voila, access granted.

Just a question.
Are you still using unnamed stocked ROM? Did it happen on Android 1.5?

P.S: Don't want that to happen to me.

Default had the same problem but solved it

I solved this as :

1.Made a call from my bros mobile .
2.then i clicked the end call button,then there will be small amount of time to go back to lock screen from call screen
3.in this time start clicking menu or home button on the phone.( better is to press end call and immediately start pressing home button,this will take to home scrren)
4.In your web browser from a computer change the password for your account.
5.make sure u have net connection for the mobile
6.now click the sync in mobile,and get back to lock screen and enter the new password

thats it u are in

Wouldn't it be possible to have someone call you, press the end call then home button and remove the unlock pattern in the settings? Well, that's if you know what the pattern is.

None of these options for the Galaxy S worked for me... however the following did.

I downloaded samsung kies (Samsung pc suite) and updated the firmware to version 2.2 android, then you simply enter email and password, this gives you the option to reset unlock pattern, and i didn't lose any of my info !!!

Hope this helps !!!!...

p.s. 2.2 android update is not available in all countries yet so when installing kies i selected UK as country.
