Okay the thing here is you need to master reset it.
Here's how it works:

  1. Power off the G1
  2. Hold Home Key + End key for 20 seconds or until you see a "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1"
  3. Open the QWERTY keyboard and hit Alt+W
  4. Restored!
To do a soft reboot, simply hit the Home+Back buttons when you reach the "triangle with an exclamation point and a picture of the G1" screen.

This will reset your phone as if it were brand new and your correct user name and password combination will work.

G1 mobile asking google username and passwords


G1 phones are set up to be used with a G1 data feature available from T-Mobile. This isn't optional and If you choose not to subscribe to this data feature, you will not be able to use the phone regardless of if you have a google email account or not. The phone is basically a paper weight without it.

Kids was playiong with G1 and did to many unlock patterns and it is now asking for gmail account email and password and i cant remember what i set up for that so i am lockd out my phone what can i do????


If you cannot remember the username and password to your G1, there is not a way to recover it at this time. The only way for you to have your phone again is to do a master reset using the hardware buttons. This will delete all of your data on the phone only (SIM card and memory card data will be fine). To do a master reset power the phone off completely. Hold the home key and the power key at the same time while turning it on again. You will see the T-Mobile G1 screen first, but them you will see a screen with a triangle appear. You can let go of the keys and open the keyboard. Press and hold the left ALT key and then press the letter W. Release both the keys and the phone will power off. Then it will power on again and act like you just removed it from the box. Create your new account and write down the username and password this time that way you wont forget it.

Was locked out of G1 phone becuz pattern was drawn to many times, entered my userid and password but the phone still won't unlock. saying invalid username or password. I can however enter gmail on the home...


Right now the G1 is having issues logging into the phone after you get locked out using a screen pattern. Just try to remember to write down the username and password you used the first time that way you won't lose the information on your phone by having to reset it. Also make sure you are typing it carefully and make sure to enter your whole gmail address too (Ex. example@gmail.com). Also if you have had to change your password from a computer after you logged into your G1, it does not take the password change. A way to avoid that is to login to the G1 again. Sync your contacts to gmail first (Settings > Data Synchronization > Menu > Sync Now). Then go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Google Apps > Clear Data. To sign in again go to Settings > Data Synchronization and it will give you the option to create an account or sign in.

Is this after forgetting the screen pattern? If you cannot remember the username and password to your G1, there is not a way to recover it at this time.

This is just a glitch with the new update but once you input your gmail username and password it should not happen anymore. Good Luck.

PS. If you do not remember your username and password check out the links on how to reset the phone. It will help you reset the phone without loosing any of your information in most cases.

First check that you do not have capitals lock in.Then try again the following whilst you put http://192.168.0.1. on your browser.

Default: 'username: admin password: password".
or
'username: admin password: 1234".
or
'username: admin password: 'blank empty space here'".

If all the above does not work then your router had been used, and password changed, or is fault. in this case bring it back and ask replacement.
There is also a reset button at the back of router. It is a tiny hole where you stick a pencil on router startup to get reset. But if the router is new and does not get default user/password I suggest changing it, It is possibly a return, and you do not know if you get more troubles after reset.
