Question about Samsung Cell Phones
I can switch on my phone but the time it's ready it asking for google account
You should be able to bypass setting up or adding a google account, and go straight to using your phone. there is probably a set up later or cancel button on that screen. google accounts just help sync up apps, contacts, and other data from the cloud to your devices.

SOURCE: too many pattern attempts
there's an actual android bug here as well, even if you haven't forgotten your credentials. see comment 93 or 127 in http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=3006

you will have to do a master reset....you will loose everything on the phone....it is important that you create a google profile, which will back up all your contacts....

Hi, I have a couple of idea for you to try.
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 , email@example.com. Now this google id on the top right corner of the page would be displayed as firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Type in the google id, thats visible on the right hand top corner of your page (like email@example.com) 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.

SOURCE: my daughter entered the wrong
For all android devices a google mail account is needed for purchasing apps etc. if he did not set this up and had set the pass code without the email specified the only way to get back into the phone would be to do a complete reset. Before you do this have you tried restarting the device and seeing if it gives you the ability to try to enter the code again, if not here is how to do a factory reset. As stated below this will delete everything on the sd card so i would advise you copy all the files from it onto your computer. the entire process should only take about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the phone sometimes less than this, good luck!
Performing a factory reset (hard reset) If you're passing your phone on to someone else or your phone has a persistent problem that cannot be solved, you can do a factory reset (also called a hard reset). This returns your phone to the state it was in before the first time you turned it on. Note: Factory reset will not remove the data and files that are in your phone's microSD card. Factory reset is not a step to be taken lightly. It will permanently delete all your data and customized settings, and will also remove any applications you've downloaded and installed. Be sure to back up any data and files you want to keep before you do a factory reset. Performing a factory reset using phone buttons If you cannot turn on your phone or access the phone settings, you can still perform a factory reset by using the buttons on the phone.
