There is a free program called "Ophcrack". Download that program on another computer and wright it as a bootable cd. Boot the computer with that disc in it and it will crack the password on that machine.

Put in wrong password on the phone too many times, now i cant log in to my google acct on it either, its just stuck at the same spot


What Brand and Type of phone ??..
Phone password or google account password ??..
Im thinking iphone ?
Although a passcode limits your iPhone to authorized use only, protecting your vital personal information, if you forget it, you can't use your phone until you enter the correct code or revert your phone to the default factory status.
Apple provides ways to resolve a forgotten passcode problem and improve the iPhone's security.

Wrong Passcode

When you enable iPhone passcode security, the phone requires you to enter the code to display the home screen.
By default, when this protection feature is enabled, you'll be prompted to enter the passcode to turn on or restart the iPhone, wake it or unlock the screen.
When you enter the wrong passcode, the "Wrong Passcode try again" message appears onscreen.
If you enter the incorrect code too many times, the iPhone will lock automatically and display the "iPhone is disabled, try again in 1 minute" message.
This disabling security feature is designed to protect it from unauthorized tampering.
If you keep entering the incorrect code, the iPhone will be disabled for a longer time.

Restoring iPhone
If you don't remember your passcode, unfortunately, there is no way to retrieve it.
Apple says that the only way to solve passcode problems is to restore the iPhone with iTunes.
Before restoring the phone, downloading and installing the latest version of iTunes will improve connection and decrease the chances of errors.
Unfortunately, restoring the iPhone erases saved content and clears custom settings, so create a backup copy of your files with iTunes before proceeding.
From there, you can restore your iPhone by clicking the "Restore" button on the device's "Summary" tab in iTunes.
When the process completes, you can change the passcode settings.



Changing Passcode Settings
iPhone allows you to not only create a new passcode, but specify the amount of time it should take before the screen locks after inactivity.
You can also specify whether you want to use a simple four-digit passcode or a longer one that can include letters and numbers.
Tapping the "Settings" icon on the home screen will bring up the phone's settings.
From there, tapping "General" and then tapping "Passcode Lock" will bring up the "Passcode Lock" customization screen.
Select the settings you want to use to protect your iPhone. The changes will take effect immediately or when the iPhone turns off.

Tips

After restoring your iPhone, create a passcode you'll remember easily.
While creating a longer passcode can increase the security on your phone, you can forget it easily if you don't write it down and store it in a safe place.
gmail password reset
Open the Web browser on your phone and navigate to gmail.com.
Tap "Can't access your account" located under the "Sign in" button.
Select "I forgot my password" and then click "Reset your password here."
Type your email into the "Email" text box and then type the random captcha into the captcha text box.
An email with your new Gmail password will be sent to your alternate Gmail address.
Follow the directions in the email to reset your password.
Type the new Gmail password into the loin screen on your Droid to unlock the account.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
