Question about Cell Phones
Try this first in this order: Press Volume UP + Volume Down + HOME button together + power on for 2 sec until recovery menu. Use Vol keys to highlight wipe data. Press to confirm then select reboot now. If this method not working see other methods below...
(ALL DATA WILL BE ERASED FROM THE PHONE AND IT WILL BE BACK TO THE FACTORY SETTINGS), PRESS AND HOLD POWER BUTTON + CALL BUTTON + VOLUME DOWN. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE SCREEN AND YOU ARE GOOD TO GO.
• When the device is turned off, simultaneously press the Volume key up and down, and then press [END CALL]. When an exclamation mark appears, press the Home key to reboot.

1) Log in to your google account on your pc, the same account you registered for your phone
2) After logging in look at the top right corner of your inbox/email page, it would say your google username. Like say if you name is John, and you have a google id thats registered to your galaxy s as ,firstname.lastname@example.org. Now this google id on the top right corner of the page would be displayed email@example.com
3) Type in the google id, thats visible on the right hand top corner of your page (firstname.lastname@example.org) into your galaxy s handset locked page, and type in the password.
TADA AND YOUR ON TO THE NEW SCREEN TELLING YOU TO PUT IN ANOTHER PATTERN.
or theres this one:
Take out the battery, the sim card, and the SD card leave the phone for 2 to 3 hours like that.. Put everything back in and boot up the phone.. This should work.
You could try this instead of waiting 3 hours, just remove battery and press power on switch for 20 seconds but this may not work.
or if you've tried everything, the only other way would be to take it to a Samsung mobile phone shop.
or do a factory reset:
THIS WILL ERASE ALL YOUR DATA THOUGH
Go into recovery mode - vol up & home & power. Once in the menu, select factory reset.It may take you a couple of attempts to get to the recovery mode but it does work, just keep trying.
enjoy & Cheers
