    I drew the pattern wrong too many times, and later it asked me for my google account and password. When i typed both of them in, it didnt work; however when I did the same online it worked perfectly. Why does it work online and not on my regular cell? now its locked and even when I take my battery out, turn it on and off, or take the sim card out it still STAYS LOCKED

    No matter how many times I enter the right username and password, the phone will not let me in. I can login on the computer just fine. How are you supposed to unlock the phone with your account if it always says the password or username is wrong?

    Did you enter a password for the phone, if not the default password should work. Is it email you are trying to set up?

SOURCE: my g1 phone has locked and wont accept my username

Okay the thing here is you need to master reset it.
Here's how it works:

  1. Power off the G1
  2. Hold Home Key + End key for 20 seconds or until you see a "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1"
  3. Open the QWERTY keyboard and hit Alt+W
  4. Restored!
To do a soft reboot, simply hit the Home+Back buttons when you reach the "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1" screen.

This will reset your phone as if it were brand new and your correct user name and password combination will work.

From the computer go to and either click on Can't access your account? to recover your old account or click on Create Account to create a new account you can use on your mobile. Once account is working use it on your phone.

If you go to Gmail on your computer, you should be able to recover your account. Here is for if you know your username Click . This one is for if you lost your username Click . Also try going on your phone and press menu / settings / Accounts&Sync. It might tell you what your google account username is! If none of those will work for I would say sign up for another google account and use that one. Only thing that sucks is if you bought anything from market place it probably will not show up as purchased if you use a different account.

If you are trying to use it on AT&T then you need to get an unlock code. Try here:
When you enter code it should continue on to Google signup screen. Before you press on the Android logo, click on the Menu button. Then follow the APN settings at: (Scroll down til you see the AT&T settings.)
Then you should see the EDGE icon at top right.
Now you can setup/sign in to your Google account.

I can't open up my g1 android phone. how could i access the lock. it says that i need to sign in to google account. i do have an google account but when i sign in my account it doesn't open.

this happend to me too, except it happend when i put the wrong lock patter in too many times. the reason it wont access ur google account is probably becuase u either dont have internet or no wifi where u are at. so go to a place where they have wifi and try there. or call tmobile tell them u forgot ur password and dot have internet and see if they can help

I reset my g1 and when i try to sign in it dosnt work without the internet package and i cant afford it is there any other way around it because i cant use my phone without signing in

Sorry, I don't think there's any way to use the G1 without internet. When you log in it has to connect with the google servers to check your password etc. Maybe you could try using a friend's simcard to sign in, and then turn the phone off and switch simcards? It might work! Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Was locked out of G1 phone becuz pattern was drawn to many times, entered my userid and password but the phone still won't unlock. saying invalid username or password. I can however enter gmail on the home...

Right now the G1 is having issues logging into the phone after you get locked out using a screen pattern. Just try to remember to write down the username and password you used the first time that way you won't lose the information on your phone by having to reset it. Also make sure you are typing it carefully and make sure to enter your whole gmail address too (Ex. Also if you have had to change your password from a computer after you logged into your G1, it does not take the password change. A way to avoid that is to login to the G1 again. Sync your contacts to gmail first (Settings > Data Synchronization > Menu > Sync Now). Then go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Google Apps > Clear Data. To sign in again go to Settings > Data Synchronization and it will give you the option to create an account or sign in.
