    I have been searching for a while, but still nothing has helped. Basically im locked out of my droid.

    I was setting up my lock pattern for the first time and made it something simple. As soon as i made it, i locked my phone to try it out. This is when my phone proceeded to tell me it was the the wrong pattern. I was astonished, seeing as it was super easy and something I JUST MADE 15 seconds ago. Anyway, I kept doing it from different angles and different ways (maybe i was holding if differently idk), till it eventually locked me out.

    Figuring i could just log in with my Gmail credentials i thought i was fine. Wrong, now it is telling me that the log in is invalid and all that junk.

    Even better, after trying many many times to do the "call your phone, back out, add wifi and a new gmail account" trick, my phone refuses to connect to a wifi port.

    Please tell me i dont have to take my phone to verizon tomorrow. Its less than a week old and i was really loving android over berries. ::grumbles::

    any advice would rock.

    Nevermind! I finally connected to Wifi, and added a second gmail account. Made sure my friend watch me enter in a pattern just to know that im not crazy.

    Reports like these makes me glad I don't bother with a lock screen.. too many issues with it currently. Hopefully it'll be fixed in future revisions.
