    I would say try to master reset the phone . but for some reason that is not working . I have a same problem . And I read some where to master reset the phone you have to power off the phone and turn in back on while holding Green and Red power button at the same time for 20 Seconds then after the Google logos disappears press Alt+T.



  • gogash Nov 30, 2008

    The problem is bigger i'd say, because now after i finaly, found out how and master reseted my G1, the google log in account appears anyway. I made a new gmail account but after 10-20 sec of attemting to login tells me to retry again in few minutes! There's no logic in making you register your account online BEFORE you even adjusted you phone for connecting!!! SO does anyone have something to say
    please i'm desperate

You need to factory reset your phone. this website shows you what to do without having to access anything on your phone - the first step is shutting it off. follow these steps and your phone will turn on, the only drawback is it will be like its new, and you'll have to re-download all the apps and stuff. it also has you sign up for gmail, and i suggest that you create a gmail address and write it down so it doesnt happen again :)

Its not that easy^ he/she needs the gmail account he/she used when he/she first got the phone to unlock his phone, but the phone keeps telling him that his/her username or password is invalid.

Hey i have an answer!!!!! ok turn your phone off then press and hold Home and Back now let go of back press power then press and hold back again.you should be holding both Home and back. now the G1 should show a red green and blue screen keep both bottons down until a gray screen comes on. the screen should have directions on it saying This operation will delete all your personal data. and reset all settings to manufacture default. just press send and it will restore the G1 to original settings. if you hav problems contact me at Bigb10728@Gmail.com

Make a new email account in Gmail (through the phone is easy) and that gets the phone working. If you can't find the old email address you probably didn't need it that bad anyway.
When you do find it, it also easy to get the old gmail account to forward to the new one (I use that method to get instant copies of emails on the phone, with everything staying on my main email account).

Posted on Oct 28, 2008

You must have a gmail account to use the phone. Just login on the phone if you have one or create one if you don't. Its not a big deal

Can not find my facebook aaccount and password but lost ny phone am using a friends but don't know how to do it


I'm not positive what you're asking. Your Facebook account will be tied to the email address or phone number you used to sign up with. You can log on from any phone or computer if you know your email address. Just click on the forgot password function if you don't remember it.

If you are trying to access Facebook from somebody else's phone, you will have to log out of their Facebook account first before entering your email address and password. Be sure to log out when you are done. You should also tell Facebook to log out of all devices since you lost your phone.

My account is locked this is what it says, Suspicious activity is detected. Your account is locked. It is asking me to put in credit card information, I dont want to put my information out there.


Just give'em a false CC #. If it's rejected they already have it and are angling for the CVV and/or home address and phone #. And you bought a frauduct that planted the virus. Make sure you change your CC #. Go to somebody else's computer and you'll find you're not locked out. While there, change your password. Don't uninstall likely frauducts from your own computer before backing up your personal files. Some are vindictive. Once you click uninstall they'll release viruses that encrypt all your files.

Password is claudeB123,keeps saying that it is incorrect


first off, never put your password on the internet where everyone can see it, even if you don't list your username. second, if you get on to the sign in space for gmail, their should be a link below that asks if you can't access your account. click on it. next it will show you a screen with common sign in problems, click on "I don't know my password." It will ask you to type in your Gmail address, or any one associated with your gmail address. once you do that, you will see a screen with your name asking if that's you. if it is click yes, and if it isn't click no. on the next screen, enter the password you last remember, (claudeB123), you can then choose to have a text message sent to you, an automated phone call, or an email sent to your backup email address.

Cant remember my gmail email to unlock my phone due to to many wrong codes


If you have forgotten the email, and locked the phone, you probably need to do a factory reset on the phone, which will wipe ALL data on the phone.
