HTC EVO 4G :: Locked Out Phone Due To Too Many Pattern Attempts / What To Do?

Sep 12, 2010

Too many failed pattern attempts due to a friend attempting to get into my phone. I have forgotten my gmail login. I tried to send username to backup email address but I tried the only other 2 email addresses I have, only to recieve an email from google stating that an account didnt exist with these backup email addresses.

After fighting with sprint for 3 hours I came to find out they are unable to give me the info to the gmail account that THEY set up when I got my EVO. Apparently the only thing they can do is reset my phone causing me to loose all of my numbers, photos, ect

Samsung Galaxy S :: "Too Many Pattern Attempts" To Unlock

Sep 24, 2010

I have forgotten my unlock pattern and was prompted an error message, "Too many pattern attempts"....to unlock, sign in with you Google Account. Here's the issue, I have tried to log in many times and it won't allow me. I have no issues logging into Gmail on my home computer. I changed my password on Gmail and re-logged on my cell and no success. I tried to do a hard reset holding home button, up volume, and pressing the power button until the Samsung logo appears. I also tried to call my phone and access the memo pad so at least I can get to my home screen.no success.Any suggestions? I think my phone has a bug and it probably needs to be sent out..

HTC Droid Eris :: Have Phone Password Or Pattern Locked After Reboot?

Mar 12, 2010

I've tried AutoLock and LockBot and maybe I didn't set an option correctly, but I can't seem to get a password or pattern unlock after a reboot/power off/on cycle.Both work fine during normal power on operations, but when I power cycle the phone it just comes up with the normal swipe unlock right into an open Eris with no password/pattern required. Kind of defeats the purpose by allow a bypass of the security.Maybe I'm missing something here or having a Homer moment.

Samsung Fascinate :: Pattern Locked - Google Sign In Won't Work

Sep 15, 2010

i got a fascinate like 2 days ago and i set a patter lock to it, i know this very well, its very simple but i was procratinating from my homework earlier and kept entering different patters because i hate homework and i have add. Anyways i did this to the point where it required a google id login. So i sigh and attempt to login, does not work, i try 10 more times before i find out that this is an ongoing android problem. I do a hard reset, still doesnt work. Now 5 hours later im pissed beyond belief wondering why google put so much effort into a dumb pattern lock and why it still does not work after a full restore.

HTC Desire :: Unable To Send SMS After Multiple Attempts

Sep 30, 2010

Since getting the phone a month ago, it has downright refused to send an SMS to one of my contacts. It is someone that I could send txts to with my old phone, and I can call and receive calls and texts from them on this one, but it simply refuses to send a text! Each time it gives me an error message saying 'unable to send after multiple attempts', and retrying just keeps giving me the same error. Getting help from my network provider they pulled the SIM and then put it back in and it worked! For one txt. After that it has continued to fail. They replaced the SIM and it has still failed. Is there any chance this is a problem with the phone?

Android :: Attempts To Save Data In Database Aren't Working

Nov 5, 2010

We've been developing an Android app at work for a few months now and recently acquired Droid Incredibles (API ver. 8) to replace our HTC Dev Phones (API ver. 4).

DANG are these some sweet new toys, but unsurprisingly, they've got a few quirks...

1) It's normal for my user to let the program run for long periods without any input, but he'd still need the display to work the entire time. Can anybody suggest a function call or setting or something that will prevent the Incredible's screen from dimming while my application is running??

2) On the Dev phone, I was able to copy my application's database file (thousands of uses, that) onto the SD card's root directory and fly. I could view the directory on my PC via USB; when I released the SD card from the PC, my application was perfectly happy with it and obediently read from and wrote to the database; and I didn't have to remove the SD card, ever. That doesn't seem to be the case with the newer, better phone, though. My application seems to be reading my start up parameters properly, but all attempts to save data in my database aren't working so well unless I'm just doing something wrong. Can anybody point me to documentation specifically geared toward the Incredible?

HTC EVO 4G :: Locked Out Of Phone

Aug 19, 2010

I'm locked out of my phone and I believe it's being caused by the "No lock" app. There was an upgrade available for that app, which I performed today, and a few mins later when I went use my phone I got presented with a keyboard to enter a password to continue. I have never set a password for this anyway. So I'm locked out and cannot access anything.

HTC Desire :: Seems Half Locked

Jul 17, 2010

I have just purchased a telstra branded HTC desire [outright] 2 days ago from JB HIFI, the salesman said its unlocked and i assumed its all good.

I can definately send/recieve calls and sms, BUT i cannot connect to the net for browsing unless im at home in my wifi area... i dont get it.. its like the device is a half locked phone, calls/sms -ok, internet-no only to telstra >>

I have a vodafone [prepaid sim] and i was able to browse and recieve emails and so on with my nokia e63 on prepaid with no issue whatsoever. This is my first android phone and im feeling a little lost/stumped with it and taken advantage of with half truths from the salesman at JB HIFI. Im sure they would know about this, i did make it clear and stress out it is a non telstra sim and that its prepaid.

Android :: Locked Up My Device?

Sep 11, 2009

I've been able to lock the screen twice with the current implementation of the app I'm writing (MediaDroid). It's very inconsistently (2 out of about 100 runs) and I'm not sure how to trigger it, so I'm assuming it's some sort of race condition or the number of threads I'm spawning.

The activity I'm working on loads a gallery of thumbnails from the sdcard. I believe I'm using most of the best practices described by Romain Guy from his Google I/O talk "Make your Android UI Fast and Efficient". I've implemented an image cache with SoftReferences wrapping my Bitmaps and created an Efficient Adapter for the gallery using the ViewHolder pattern.

What I am doing, which I question, is loading each image via a thread as it is retrieved from the ImageCache...I pass back a default image if the bitmap is null, then update the default image in the ImageViews with the Bitmap is loaded from the sdcard; I'm doing this by posting to a Handler in the Adapter from the thread that loads the image.

So as you can imagine a number of threads are created, about 25 at a time, as the user swipes through the image gallery. Once the user reaches the end of the gallery, the images are only reloaded if the garbage collector has collected them due to the SoftReference. I've been impressed by how well this worked....until the bug mysteriously started appearing. What has happened both times is, all the images in the gallery show the default images, then I get an ANR and with the force close or wait option, I hit force close and the ANR dialog shrinks (but doesn't go away) and the background goes black...then everything just freezes...here's the logs where I believe things start to lock up.

CODE:......

If I press on the screen I get nothing on the device, but in the logs I get

CODE:........

And I have to power down the device.

So if the number of threads is the problem I'm thinking of loading all the bitmaps when the app is first initiated, probably using the AsyncTask class. A question I have though about this is that the docs say that you can only call execute() once...what's happens if some of my Bitmaps are garbage collected?? Do I then call individual threads to reload? I've looked through some of the Google apps, Shelves and Photostream, but they don't seem to be using Bitmaps wrapped in SoftReferences.

HTC EVO 4G :: Locked Up On Data Connection?

Jun 17, 2010

Evo has locked up on data connection.One minute data is working great and then, No internet, app store, etc. and anything I try to do brings up a dialogue box that says retry or cancel, and that I need internet network access. Phone still works, but does occasionally seem to not hang up on first try.

When I go to settings - wireless & networks, it shows a box "trying to connect" but nothing happens. 4g, bluetooth and wifi are turned off. I have to completely restart phone and the data is back. This has happened about 5 times. Phone issue or Sprint issue. I am in Atlanta, and can get 4g coverage around my house and area. 3 g goes from great to low in same spots.

Samsung Vibrant :: Locked Out Of Phone

Sep 26, 2010

I've been looking around for a while trying to see if anyone posted something like this and I have not found anything quite like what is going on with my phone. I got my pattern code wrong enough times so my vibrant is requesting I enter google account information in order to let me in. I have not been able to access the phone this way since it will not accept the google info I am inputting. I know my username and password are correct since I have verified them on my computer to ensure that I am using the correct information.

I have followed the instructions for accessing the recovery mode menu..and have deleted user data and cache twice, and the phone is still prompting me to enter my google username and password. I contacted TMobile support and they were useless. Is there any way for me to bypass this screen? What is the proper way to do a real master reset of my phone that will actually delete the data I have already inputted into the phone?

I am somewhat freaking out because I just bought this phone today, and cannot believe this is happening. I've been searching these forums and online for hours looking for a solution but nothing that I have found has worked. If I could get the phone back to factory settings that would solve the issue, but I can't find a set of proper instructions that actually delete the data since the phone is still prompting me for the google information due to my getting the pattern code wrong.
