    I have a sony ericsson X10, it has a security pattern lock on the phone. However this has gone off in my pocket and now the phone is locked. I can not remember the google email address for the phone and now i can not access the phone. Orange customer service has told me to get in touch with google, in order to delete the old account [whatever that may be] but there is no number for google customer service. Anyone....please help!!!!!

    Would a factory reset do the job? There should be a way using the power button and one or more others to instigate a factory reset.

    If you know your email account name then you could try typing in 'null' as a password which has worked for some people.

    If not then you will have to run a repair/reset via Sony Ericsson Update Service which will wipe your phone back to factory settings and you can then reload everything from new.

    Please do as rosered outlined regarding running an Update or Repair of the software on your handset to remove the lock.
