Hi guys,
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!
Thanks

After trawling the net for three hours to find out how to unlock my phone after too many pattern attempts, I found something that seemed too simple to actually work.  When the screen comes up asking for your g-mail address and password; all you have to do is sign in using your You Tube username and password. THAT'S IT!!!  Yay!!! Smile

Thanks guys, but unfortunately neither of those worked. I tried with my youtube account and the screen just showed a blue box that said 'Checking...' that didn't go away. I was never able to sync my phone with a google or youtube account, so could that be why it's not working? And do you know any way to do the 3 button reset? Or does it just not work on some SGS's?
I couldn't find anything on #35 that would work Crying does this mean i'm going to have to take it to the Samsung Service Centre?

The last post in thread 35 refers to pressing the home button constantly to exploit a bug. You have to got to the link at the end of the thread.

I've looked at that and tried it countless times and it's still not working  Sad
I've seen people talking about USB dongle jigs, where you plug it in and it takes it to download mode, is that going to help me in any way?

It won't work because you were never able to register your device.

Can you get into recovery Mode?

Close your phone. Take out Battery to make sure it's switched off.

Then Press and HOLD Volume UP + HOME Button + Power Button.

Once the Device Lights up let go of the Power button but keep the Volume and Home Keys pressed.

Once you see a menu with 3 or 4 options let go of Volume and Home keys.

Now use the volume rocker to scroll down to Wipe System Data and press Home Key to select.

This will give you an option like this.

------No------
------No------
------No------
------No------
------No------
------Yes-----
------No------
------No------
------No------
------No------
------No------


Scroll down to Yes and press Home Key.

Warning this will erase all contacts, Apps, and Settings.

Peace.

What about Download Mode.

Volume Down + Home Key + Power button?

So guys...after many many hours of research through your posts and this forum, NONE of the methods you mentioned have been successful.

1.The recovery thingy DOES NOT WORK.As you said I pressed and holded power, home and volume but NOTHING HAPPENED.
2.I tried to call my device from another phone then went to the 3 options, but when I had to bring the small menu at the top it just wouldn't come down!
3.I don't have a youtube account and I can't remember my gmail password and username(e-mail adress)
4.When I went to ''Forgot your password'' it asked me some sorts of weird stuff and anyway a couldn't make ends meet.
5.I saw people on Youtube unblocking their phones through different ways such as bugs but NONE of those tricks worked.

I am really frustrated and it seems that the only method is to either send my phone to the Samsung Service or to the shop I bought it from.Maybe there, the technicians can be able to unlock it...
