While playing footy at school today, my "so called friend" decided to take my phone from the sidelines and endlessly attempt to unlock it by trying random patterns. So when I got back to my phone to check it, it said "Too many pattern attempts!" then it said to login into my google account to unlock it. I've never been able to sync my phone with a gmail account because every time I try it says it "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server", though I do have a gmail account which I have tried the password and it always says that it is an 'Invalid username or password.'
I have been on numerous forums and sites, and tried everything but nothing is working. Just so I don't get a double up on suggestions, here's a list of what I've tried (and hasn't worked):
-Trying normal username/email and password
-Entering null as a password,
-Trying username without @gmail.com,
-Calling from another phone and trying to get to homepage by hanging up etc.,
-Factory reset (for some reason my phone does not enter any recovery modes or anything when i do the start up with volume buttons/home button etc)
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I already have messages/missed calls which I can't access!
