    My mates kid was in the house last night and I gave him my N1 to play with, playing that wotsit thunder 2 racing game. A few phone calls came in whilst he was playing and at some point the screen got locked to my pattern.

    Daft little bugger had to many goes at unlocking the screen and hard locked it.

    Never having got that far through bad guesses it was all new to me, but a nice message pops up requesting your Google account details.

    I typed them in, no luck. I type them in again, no luck. I had a quick Google on my laptop... oh dear... recognised bug... try using Googlemail instead of gmail.com. No luck. Ok... reset my account.. new password here we go... :( no luck.

    Had to reset my phone, 10 minutes before hitting the town. Spent to the first 30 minute sat in the pub re-building my phone.

    Awesome. that's one hell of a bug Google.

    It's a crap bug, but yes, this. Kid + expensive gadget = NO.

    As if you actually put the phone down after you figured out how to unlock it! I'm guessing you spent at least another 30 min boring your friend with a demo. ;)

    Kids eh?? At least we can't blame anyone else from the kids being there - .. err... silly me, some people won't even take that responsibility...

    Cheers!

    True, a kid's much more expensive than a phone. Also easier to resell if you ditch them in the slave trade or harvest the organs, though I'm not sure about the profit margin.

    A kid is much more expensive than a phone and you get all kinds of hassle when you tell your insurance you accidentally flushed it down the toilet.

    Nor can you get a refund if you don't like the kid. :(

    I think this must surely be a fake post, no real Android user sits their device down for ANYTHING. ;)

    Well which one do you love more?
    (hint, one of them has upgrades) hehehe

    Anyways wow that's a serious bug. I'm gonna think twice about letting my friends try to guess my unlock screen pattern now.

    I thought the child could be trusted to not be an idiot. Apparently I was wrong. To top it all off I've been taken down with the Noro virus and I've been sick for days. Awesome!

    The nexus one is all recovered now but still... quite a bug to have slipped through testing.

    I do note in retrospect that I had WiFi turned on. My WAP is a bit crappy and sometimes the connection fails to it. I'm wondering if I'd managed to get out if range if the phone would have flipped to 3G and actually tested the credentials against the server?
