    You gotta do a hard reset, this is a major bug in Android, not sure if it's been fixed in 2.2+ Do a hard reset by holding volume up+home+search for 5 seconds, not longer, not shorter, then tap ok. This will erase everything on the phone

    Do not reset you will loose everything, when this happened to me you have to do the following:

    - Put in the correct google email
    - Put the password as the word null

    then it will ask you to choose a new unlock password and its back to normal :)
