If there is an option to unlock your phone by logging into your google account, try that. On my phone, it only shows up if you turn off the screen, and turn it back on again, then I enter my login info, and it's unlocked.
If you can't unlock it, another option is to hard reset it. You will lose all your info, but it can be retreived again from your google account. If you have apps on your SD card, it should also reload them as well. If not, your previously installed apps should show up on Market to be reinstalled. However, you should reinstall them all at the same time, because if the Market app closes, it might erase your previous app history. Im not sure if its fixed in later versions of Android (the operating system on your phone), but on my older phone, it deletes the previous app history if you reboot or close the app.

Possible you're tablet has a Reactivation Locked that it will only recognize the very firsy google account that was set up on it when the fisrt owner bought it. You need to contact the original owner for this. If still not working, last option is to send it for repair to Samsung for the removal of the reactivation lock.

Pattern lock too many attempts

You should be able to authenticate by logging into your google account online. If you have not associated your phone with a google account, or your wifi is disabled, you may have to do a hard reset on your phone. THIS WILL ERASE ALL OF YOUR DATA STORED ON THE PHONE! For most Samsung phones, with the phone off, you press the volume, home and power button simultaneously, and hold until you get the startup screen.

In my sumsung t959 to many pattern attempts. and now it gives me a message that you can unloack by google account and it doesnt accept my google account as well. please help me what should i do

Hey this should work. The idea is to just try to reset the phone. First you could try to call yourself on a different phone, call yourself, answer, and then you should be in the phone. If that doesn't work, to reset it:
  • Shut your Android Galaxy S down (Power off) or remove Battery.
  • Now press Volume up, Home and Power together.
  • If the Samsung Symbol is coming up leave the Home Button.
  • Then there is a boot Menu
  • Volume Up and Down to Navigate , Home to select the chosen option
hope it works!

Samsung galaxy android unlock..cannot unlock my samsung galaxy phone...forget unlock pattern...cannot log in the google account ask by the phone.

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 , Now this google id on the top right corner of the page would be displayed as

3) Type in the google id, thats visible on the right hand top corner of your page (like into your galaxy s handset locked page, and type in the password.


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:
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.
