    do a hard reset.
    1. Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.
    2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
    Now to wipe the device clean:
    3. Press Alt+L.
    4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
    5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
    The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

    i locked my G1 and dont remember what my google email and password is to get into it...how do i find out that information??

  • princeton3 Apr 18, 2009

    i made the mistake and went to Settings, and then clicked on the options about "Drawing a pattern code"...i thought that i hadn't made a pattern code yet, because i was just about to at that moment..but when i click the lil check and then went back, it asked me to reenter my pattern code..i tried everything, but nothin worked. So i hitted the "Forgot your password" link and then it asked me to enter the username and password, but nothing worked. And i know i was entering the right information. Because when i went to google.com and entered the same information, it worked. I was tryin to figure out is there a way i could reset my account or something...or is gmail and google different or somethin...i don't know what to do, because i really don't wanna do a factory reset, but if i have to i will..im just trying to do alot of research first though...

The only way to unlock the pattern is by entering your gmail.com user name and password. It can be difficult using the phone trying different combos you might have selected initially so I suggest sitting down at your computer and trying to sign into gmail. If you're gmail account is linked to an alternate email such as yahoo they will send it to you. Good luck! Robert

My problem is pattern lock


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!

Htc wildfire locked too many pattern attempts


Turn off, turn on again. Get on a computer and access your email account, make sure that's in order. Turning it back on, the phone i mean, eliminates the timer. You wont have to use your email to access your phone, usin instead the normal pattern.

If it wont turn, off, remove the battery, put it back, and turn on the hone ffter waiting between thirty and sixty seconds.

Forgot my HTC G2 T-Mobile lock pattern


After you put the pattern in a few times incorrectly it will lock the phone and an option at the bottom will appear that says "Forgot Pattern?" Select that and enter your email and password to unlock the phone.

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! :)
