Too many patterns tried phone is locked


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!

Get your account password wrong 5 times and it will ask you if you forgot your password at the bottom. Then it gives you the opportunity to unlock your phone using your Google account credentials.

My vodafone 845 got locked with the grid password an dnow i cant unlock it my kids locked it and they forgot the passwork . how do i fix it?


Hi,

Yours seems like an Android phone. For Andorids with the Pattern lock (I assume that's what you meant by grid lock), if you try the wrong pattern 5 times, you are given the option to use your Gmail Account to unlock and reset your Android device unlock pattern.

Once you get the prompt for the Gmail login, use the account that you have set up in your Android device. This would take you to the option of resetting the unlock pattern.

Please note that if you have set up the 2-step-verification for Google accounts, your password will not be the regular Gmail password. You'll have to generate the authorizing password here: https://www.google.com/accounts/IssuedAuthSubTokens

Hope it helps.

-regards,
Mrigs

Unlock with google email


To unlock the pattern screen lock, sign in with your Google account.
1. After 30 seconds, tap Forgot pattern?
2. The user need to log in with the primary gmail.com e-mail address and not the alternative email address connected to the Google account.
3. Tap the username field and enter the primary Google account user name.
4. Tap the password field and enter the primary Google account password.
5. Draw a new unlock pattern and tap Continue .
6. Draw the new unlock pattern again and tap Continue .

Hope this help

Please i need to unlock my T-Mobile G1 mobile phone. How can you help me with remote unlock if i provide IMEI number.


Exactly how are you locked out? If you're stuck on the lock-out screen with a lockout pattern that you've forgotten? If that's the case, the G1 manual indicates the following:
"When you fail to draw the correct unlock pattern on the screen after five attempts, you will be prompted to wait for 30 seconds before you can try again. If you forgot your screen unlock pattern, touch Forgot pattern. You will be prompted to sign in using your Google Account name and password, and create a new screen unlock pattern before the Home screen displays."

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. example@gmail.com). 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.
