    Hey im new here and i have a htc inspire and my brother started to mess with it and tried to enter the number code to get to the home screen and now it says: Too many attempts and is asking for my gmail account info. Problem is that i lost my wallet that had that info, so now i cannot get into the home screen. Anybody know a solution to this? Any thing will be greatly aprreciated.

    You can try to get your info online from a computer. Go to gmail.com then click the forgot password or whatever else you need

    Not sure about calling it you could try. I think the worse case is you will need to reset the phone.

    i guess im going to try to reset it, worst case scenario take it to a phone repair store see if they can do it, just wish i could have done it, im tired of spending money, i just spent money to fix the screen :(

    This is worth a shot if you've used ADB before

    Pattern Lock.. Defeated! - xda-developers
