If you can't remember your Google account information (username and password), how about just making a new one. This is how I would solve this problem. Just create a new account (gmail) and you can then do your thing with your mobile device.

Go with what swiker said, and write the account info on the notes app on your iPod/iPad/iPhone.

In case you have forgotten the account or pattern you can solve this using a different method.

Please install Android SDK tools then connect the phone to the computer. Start a Command Prompt and type: adb shell. Input the next command: rm /data/system/gesture.key then restart your phone. Once the phone restarts, connect it back to the computer and use the shell again, you will need to type the following commands now:

adb shell
cd /data/data/­s/databases
sqlite3 settings.db
update system set value=0 where name=’lock_pattern_autolock’;
update system set value=0 where name=’lockscreen.lockedoutpermanently’;

After this, input any pattern and the phone will be unlocked.
