    Well, I have a Samsung Captivate, and my friend used up all the unlock pattern attempts on my phone, and I got locked out. Since I'm locked out, I need my GMail account to get in to my phone.
    Unfortunately, I can't remember ANY GMail information, including the alternate email I used to make the GMail account.
    Is there any way I could recover my account differently?
    If not, will I need to get a new phone?

    Too Many Pattern Attempts - CapFAQ

    You have an Android phone. Android is made by Google, and your primary link for access is via your Google/Gmail account. It's critical that you not use some casual/throwaway account for this when setting up your phone and make sure you use a good, valid account that you know the password for.

    If there was an alternate way to get around this, it wouldn't be very good security... which is the whole point.
