Re: keypad locked and simcard does not have inbuilt...
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.

The commonest cause for this is that the phone is locked to a particular service provider and you are inserting a SIM from another provider. If that is the case you will need to get the phone unlocked by contacting the service provider to whom it is locked (you will have to provide proof of ownership).
If you are sure the phone is unlocked then try cleaning the contacts on the SIM by gently rubbing with a clean cloth before reinserting.
The process of converting android phones to modem is called Tethering.
Before looking for and purchasing a suitable app, you will need a few things:
Android phone Android phone drivers for your laptop or PC's operating system USB cable
You should also be aware that using your mobile as a modem will impact on your data plan, so make sure that tethering your phone won't result in a huge bill from your network. Note also that some networks block tethering, which is why you might need to root your Android.
The first thing you need to do is find a suitable app. Several are available from the Market each with different requirements. Some must be paid for, whereas the free ones will usually require root access.
Four popular Android tethering apps are:
PDANet - costs $10 and doesn't require root access; also requires a desktop app. EasyTether -this app is also $10 and doesn't require a rooted phone. Tethering Widget - a free tethering app that requires your Android to be rooted. Tethering - a free app that doesn't require rooting.
(I personally prefer tethering bcause its free)
Once downloaded and installed, these apps can then be tethered with a USB cable to use your Android cell as a modem for your computer.
Now that you have chosen and installed a suitable app to use your Android phone as a wireless modem, you can take advantage of the functionality it delivers. Once your phone is connected to your PC or laptop you should find that with the app installed and running, and the correct drivers installed on your PC, the computer will detect your phone as a modem and let you access the Internet with it.
There are differences in the various apps at this stage (for instance PDANet employs a client app on your PC) so you will need to check the instructions for the one you choose. The general rule is that with mobile internet active on your phone, your Android connected by USB to your computer and the application running, your PC will now be able to use the phone as a new network connection!
The Samsung Galaxy S is one of the iPhone 4's biggest competitor in the UK. Most of the networks here carry the Galaxy S but like all subsidized mobile phones, chances are, the one that you got is locked to that specific network. So, how do you unlock the Samsung Galaxy S from Vodafone, O2, Orange, etc? Well, I've used this guide on a Galaxy S locked to T-Mobile USA so I don't really know if it will work for UK users but other users in other parts of the world reported it working on their Galaxy S locked to their carriers so there's no harm in trying (but then, I take no responsibility when you brick your phone so use at your own risk). This procedure will only work on a Samsung Galaxy S not running Android 2.2.
How to unlock 1) Go to Android Marketplace and search for Samsung Galaxy S Unlock Tool. Two apps showed up and I chose to download the one with five star rating (first one). 2) After downloading, I installed the app, went to applications then opened SGS Unlock. 3) Write down the generated unlock code and unfreeze code as well. 4) Shut down your phone, insert a simcard which your phone is not locked to. The phone will automatically ask for an unlock code. Enter the unlock code and press unlock. 5) Viola! You now have an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S.
Go to the option of the forgot password it will be delivered to your mail ID provided by at the time of the account opening.
Your phone is asking for a code because it is locked to only work with one phone company.
If your new sim is from a different company, you can request the unlock code from your old company, they may or may not give it to you (tmobile usually does, ATT/Cingular usually doesn't). The other option is to use a unlocking service, you can find plenty on ebay.
If you didn't change phone companies, your new sim card is most likely bad, have your phone company send you another one.
