So six months ago I got an EVO and started using my old Hero to replace my old iPod(4gig mini) at work. With an 8gig SD card and no radios turned on, it has great battery life and works great!! When I got the EVO, I switched my Gmail account to it. The market quit working on the Hero but I didn't mind because I had all the apps I needed for it already, I never set up a new Gmail for the Hero. I keep it in my pocket at work and run headphones off it. Today it went silent. I took it out of my pocket to see that it was locked. I use the pattern unlock to prevent pocket dialing and never had a problem before today. It must have been rubbing my leg on the unlock screen and tried too many times. Now its asking me for a Gmail account, my old one doesn't work and I never made a new one. I tried pulling the battery but that's about all I can think to do.
