Default Re: too many pattern attempts !!!!

Hi all,

As to what happened, my 8 year old sister in law was playing with the pattern lock trying to figure it out till it got locked.

I registered my SGS with my hotmail account and connected to a wireless before, but even then it wouldn't connect it went to "checking" and stayed that way for 2 days.

I attempted all the suggestions here and on many other sites unfortunately none of them worked. Although the Safe-Mode thingy you described by holding power-on/off button and volume down/up almost worked, but the moment I opened the security settings it went back to the locked screen mode.

I was stuck and had no Idea what to do.

The only solution I had was to go to Samsung Service centre and get them to reset the phone. I didn't bother going to the shop I bought it from, but the whole software reset is on the warranty. My headphones weren't working and they fixed that as well.

Although I lost all my applications and information I'm just glad I have my phone back.

One thing though, with the software reset, I lost something I enjoyed a lot about my SGS. It was something that made typing easier by just sliding my finger from letter to letter to auto-write it.

Well, that's my story,

cheers,
Tooh

Swype should still be on your device as it is included with android. I know it didn't look like it was on mine but when I went to settings | Locale and Text then tapped select input method Swype was there.

I had the same problem, as my kid played with my mobile and too many patterns attempted.
What I did was
1. Galaxy s GL i9000 - too many pattern attempts

http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=3006 or

Unlocking the 'google captcha' (https://www.google.com/accounts/UnlockCaptcha)
Waiting a few minutes before 3G connects to the internet

2. called myself from my homephone
3. left line open couple of minutes
4. hung up from home phone
5. press home button on my galaxy s
6. went into privacy settings and selected factory reset
7.voila.

You probably can save some pictures, music etc if you before doing any of those connect your mobile to kies via pc connector (via usb).

If you've forgotten the gmail account password, try going to the "Forgot Password" link. Try that from a PC.

there is a way but you need to go to the gmail web site first, then were you enter your email there should be under sign in CANT ACCESS YOUR ACCOUNT, click it then continue to enter your alteranet email from the information provided from your account information, then go into that email account an dit will give a link for the old email you used. If you forgot both email an password after the first step (the paragraph just typed) then type your email in the correct one of course, then click same link and follow intructions and it will be unlocked

This happened to me yesterday and i found out how to solve it!!!!!!!



The only bad thig is you will lose everything from your phone



1.wait 5 mins when your phone has fully tuned on(if you turned it off)

2.get a diffrent phone and call your self

3.when it appers that you have a call, in the bootom of the screen you will see reply with message or something like that. slide it open

4.after you did that hit the home butten

5.(now wait the problem is not solved because if you leave it like that it will go back to how it was) .after you have it the home button quickly go to settings and go to pravacy and factory reset it

6.after that you problems are solved

Keep in mind everything will be erased
hope you found this helpfull i found this out

Glad you recovered use of your phone. Did you find out how to do it here because the steps you list were also given by mcmotorsport, biljana, quoted by natjen in this thread. It's good to give credit.
