Question about Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Cell Phone

1 Answer

I enabled the screen lock, and set a pattern. Played around with it, just to see what would happen. Ended up getting to the point where it would not let me enter in the pattern any more, but instead asks me for my Google account username and password to unlock the screen. I put in my credentials, but it says invalid username/password!! I am 100% certain that the usernamne/password are correct - I even logged in and out of Google several times to confirm I wasnt going mad. I am also 100% certain that I entered the credentials in correctly during the initial device setup (otherwise it would not have associated itself with my Gmail account and downloaded all my contacts etc.). So my question is what the hell is going on?? I am looking at having to send the device back for a repair/reimage already and I've only had it 2 days!! Pretty crappy flaw in the phones software if you ask me - very easy to brick it. I wouldnt mind so much if I was trying to install a new ROM or something, but I'm not interested in that. HELP!

You do not say what type of password was set and if you have forgotten it or just want to reset from a known password..
If you just want to change your gmail login password
- Go to google.com/accounts on the tablet browser
- Sign in
- "Change Password"
- Go back to the Home Screen on the tablet
- Open the GMail app, clicked on Menu, then Refresh -- you will get a sync error
- Wait for a notification to re-enter your password (a triangle with an exclamation point in the tablet notificaiton bar and/or something in the gmail screen)
- Enter the new password

This simple solution sometimes works:
Turn it off.
Turn back on.
When you get the warning triangle in the notification bar, open the notification.
You will then get a login screen.
Input your new password.

Pattern Lock- Incorrectly enter pattern 5 times (4 or more points each time) . Pop up message will appear Click Next and you will be prompted for goole a/c details or security for pattern lock.
tap forgotten pattern and on next screen enter goole account details. Then next screen allows you to choose a new screen lock option.

Locked with PIN or password _Try Screenlock bypass pro from play store.
The only other solution is a hard reset which is only as a last resort. You need to access Androids Recovery mode. Check your manual. Most devices it is power off then power up holding volume + and power buttons.
Once in this mode use power down button to highlight "wipedata/factory reset option, then use power button to select it.
Vol - button to to scroll and select yes delete all user data option with power button. When device reset select option to reboot now and the device will turn on unlocked but you will have lost your personal data.

Face unlock - you were asked to provide a pattern or PIN backup when you set it. Just bypass and enter PIN or pattern.
Good Luck

I forgot the screen pattern for my BLU VIVO 4.65 HD cellular phone How do I get around it?


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!

The touch screen on my wildfire htc phone is far too sensitive - makes calls by accident ...


The only resolution or work around for that is by enabling a pin lock or a pattern lock for your phone
This can be accomplished by going to settings > location &security> setup screen lock
Please setup one and your phone wont dare to make that accidental call again .

How do i unlock my phone,iused the draw method and i forgot what i drew.THEN IT SAYS TO GET MY PASSWORD FROME MY EMAIL(GOOGLE)BUT IT SEEMS AS THOUGH I FORGOT THAT TOO


I found the following on another website. I don't know if it's true.
One thing unique about Android phones is their pattern unlocking system. However, after a number of unsuccessful tries, it will lock you out permanently. This happened to my brother, and it wouldn't accept his gmail username and password (the only other login method). He was looking at a reset and loss of all his data not stored in his Google account. Luckily, he found a work around. If you enter your gmail account name, and use "null" as the password, it will enable the pattern unlock again. This may give you a chance to try different patterns until you find the one you set.

Forgot lock screen pattern takes me to username for g mail and dont know it any suggestions?


IDK about a simple legitimate fix for this. I was just messin around with the pattern, hit "forgot pattern" to see what it does. It asks me for the Google username and password, but has no way for me to go back! I know the pattern! The Motorola Droid is free from this problem, when on the forgot password screen, it still allows me to go back to the pattern screen. Very disappointing HTC...

On the other hand, there is a bit of a "hack" that can be used to solve this. Create a new Google account. Then call the locked phone from another phone. While in the call, you have full access to the phone. Press home, go into your settings, and add your new Gmail account into the phone. End the call, go back, and enter your new Gmail info. You may also need to enable Wifi while the call is still connected, I'm not sure if 3G will work for the sync while the phone is "locked".

Locked out of my HTC Dream due to too may incorrect patterns


Ok, So I just had the same thing happen to me last night and I just fixed it. It'll take 2 people to do it. I went on to my gmail and changed my pattern, after a few minutes my phone had a triangle with an exclamation mark come up in the notifications bar. Don't bother turning off your phone...mine didn't reset for the pattern after 7 hours of being turned off. At this point, once you get that triangle, get someone to call your phone, it'll unlock it for a few minutes. Just long enough for you to change the password on your phone by clicking into that arrow. Then your phone will lock again after the call is done. Put the new password into your phone again on this screen. Then it'll ask you to draw another pattern. Draw something simplistic, then if you want to take it back off just go back into your settings and remove the lock....just remember your pattern this time! hope this helps!

Samsung dlp hln617w aging pattern problem


I am actually having the same problem. I just reciently installed a new bulb and messing around in the service menus, and ended up with the same problem. I found that if if in the same menu the aging pattern was in, I think it was the last menu, and click on the EW RESET, let the TV reset and that should fix your problem.
