The factory reset removed the Google account data from your phone. When first setting up a phone, you pair the phone with a google account. On the off chance that was not the first thing you did after the factory reset, you may have to hard reset it again and then go through setup immediately to pair a Google account with the phone. If you have not paired the Google account with the phone during setup, you will not have Google access. If the setup offers a restore from backup (and you did have backup enabled previously), you can give that a go. It would restore settings.

But before you do that, you could try the following. I don't think they will work for you but the powers that be might smile upon you.

Try entering your user account name and when prompted for a password, enter the word "null". Afterward, set up a new pattern.

Alternatively, The G2/Hero's 'Forgot Pattern?' screen asks you to enter the Gmail address you signed in with and its password.

Here is another trick rather hard to describe as I can't write it in this forum. You know the letter x. Try writing it 3 times before the @ sign in the following two items below.

If you enter @gmail.com and then the password, then it will say it's not right. You need to enter @googlemail.com and then it will accept it the password, purportedly.

Maybe now there arent some programs you would expect on the G1, this is the first phone on a completely new OS. give it a few weeks when Devs have started introducing programs on the Android marketplace that allow the extra missing parts of the phones capabilities to be Filled in such as Video recording, Video playback, Bluetooth A2DP etc. Just remember, Android is Completely customisable, Absolutely anything can be performed on the OS with the right program and phone specifications !

Go to Google online from any PC and select Gmail link from the top left corner. Then click on the "Can't access my account" on the right. Or go to this link: https://www.google.com/accounts/ForgotPasswd?service=mail&fpOnly=1

I have a G1 but i forgot my pattern so i reset it ; i went to tmobile to buy a sim card but they told me i cant use prepaid , ive looked up how to unlock a G1 and every website saids i need the code to...


No you dont need to buy an unlock code if you simply forgot your password code, all you must do is do a hard reset on the phone. and yes you can use it prepaid or with whatever plan you want, all you do is insert your tmobile sim card, i have a flex account with tmobile and i just inserted the sim card, You dont have to contact tmobile.

Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.Now to wipe the device clean:

Press Alt+L. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

I locked my phone with a pattern code, forgot what it was, attempted to open it too many times....with the wrong code and now it says on the screen to enter my Google account to get my phone unlock but...


Your IMEI numbers are needed to unlock your HTC G1 mobile phone. Reveal the codes by pressing *#06# on your phone keypad. Then after getting the information, please go to an HTC UNLOCK CODE website for you to be provided with the correct codes. You also may need to know the country and network the phone was purchased from. thanjs

Please i need to unlock my T-Mobile G1 mobile phone. How can you help me with remote unlock if i provide IMEI number.


Exactly how are you locked out? If you're stuck on the lock-out screen with a lockout pattern that you've forgotten? If that's the case, the G1 manual indicates the following:
"When you fail to draw the correct unlock pattern on the screen after five attempts, you will be prompted to wait for 30 seconds before you can try again. If you forgot your screen unlock pattern, touch Forgot pattern. You will be prompted to sign in using your Google Account name and password, and create a new screen unlock pattern before the Home screen displays."

1. Turn the G1 off. If it’s frozen on, take the battery out and put it back in the unit.
2. Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.
Now to wipe the device clean:
3. Press Alt+L.
4. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
5. Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.
