Sorry but u have to reset it


if you power off your phone and hold the home (shaped like a house) and the end (red hangup button) for about 20 seconds you get a triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1.

Home+Back reboot system now - (Soft Reboot)
Alt+L - Toggle log text display - (Toggles between the exclamation and menu options)
Alt+S - apply sdcard:update.zip - (Not brave enough yet)
Alt+W - Wipe data/factory reset - (What I chose, had to re-register, out of the box settings)

Too many pattern attempts


if you forgot your pattern lock, just give few more tries to continue wrong efforts. at an instant, the OS will report 'attempts exceeded, enter with your gmail'. at this point just enter your email address and in the textbox for password just give value as 'NULL'. this will instantly ask for new pattern lock and you are done!

Google G1 Locked, ( No Sim Card ).


1) You'll need to borrow a SIM from a friend of yours to access the phone.

2) Open the market and install an application named "wosim".

3) Turn off your phone and then turn it on again.

Keypad locked and simcard does not have inbuilt internet connecti

















Ok, so for whatever reason you have entered your little pattern too many times on your Android phone and you are now locked out. You can't remember your pattern, something or someone else entered it too many times or something of the like and you are now stuck at the "Too Many Pattern Attempts" screen. The phone is demanding the Google account details that you synced the phone with when you very first turned it on.

T-mobile phone lock and new update


This is just a glitch with the new update but once you input your gmail username and password it should not happen anymore. Good Luck.

PS. If you do not remember your username and password check out the links on how to reset the phone. It will help you reset the phone without loosing any of your information in most cases.

Google G1 locked out


T-mobile is the only wireless provider that will even work with this phone....so kinda a no brainer....;)

if you had too many incorrect pattern attemps, the handset will automatically lock you out of your handset....if thats the case, the only thing left to do, is either go to the link i have below and trying to restore the forgotten username and/or password....just answer the questions the webside asks for and you can log in again....

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=46346&fpUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Faccounts%2FForgotPasswd%3FfpOnly%3D1%26continue%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fmail.google.com%252Fmail%252F%253Fhl%253Den%2526tab%253Dwm%2526ui%253Dhtml%2526zy%253Dl%26hl%3Den%26service%3Dmail%26ltmpl%3Ddefault&fuUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Faccounts%2FForgotPasswd%3FfuOnly%3D1%26continue%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fmail.google.com%252Fmail%252F%253Fhl%253Den%2526tab%253Dwm%2526ui%253Dhtml%2526zy%253Dl%26hl%3Den%26service%3Dmail%26ltmpl%3Ddefault&hl=en

if that fails you will have to reset your handset and create a new login with your phone.

the handset will need to be powered off, then press and hold the house and the red buttons at the same time until you see a triangle with a yellow "!" inside....when you see this screen release those keys and slide open the keypad and press the "ALT" and "W" keys at the same time. the handset will turn off and power on again and walk you through the setup. here you can either attempt to sign in again with the underscore or you can create a new account.

*******careful, any new numbers you added since you had the g1 will be lost if you cannot log in again with the same username and password******

good luck! :)
