    my friend was trying to guess my pattern password and has locked me out,it is now telling me to login with my google account. However, it will not accept my google mail account. I went to carphone warehouse and they told me to login on my laptop, reset my password and do it again, but it hasn't worked. Any ideas?

    Heard of a few like this on tv about pattern passwords. 3 wrong tries and lock. Try battery pull then you should be able to get back in through google.

    This happened to me with stock 2.1 and 1.6, it's some sort of bug in Android.. Can only be fixed with a hard reset (hold volume up+home+search for 5 seconds exactly). However, if you upgrade to 2.2 or 2.3 you don't get this problem, you just have to wait 30 seconds if you get it wrong 5 times then try again :p
