    Basically my friend took my desire and wanted a play with it... however i had the pattern unlock on it and he got it wrong 20 times and now i need to put in my gmail account details and password. Despite this i never use gmail and have used my secondary email to find out my detail, but adding these details dont work on my phone!?!?!?
    is there any other way to get me back on to this amazing phone !!!

    It locks after 5, not 20 ;)

    You then get a further few goes to enter you Gmail before the phone locks.

    To unlock using Gmail, you must have signal, and IIRC it has to be network signal so move out of range of a stored wifi point.

    after 5 times you have to wait 30 seconds, then you enter it few more times before it asks for your g-mail..

    but sorry, I can't give much help..

    Before you restore it, if you already havent. Try typing your gmail account name without the @gmail.com bit. So "example@gmail.com" would just be "example"

    How do you not know your google account?

    Take it to your store with your receipt and they may be able to help you.
