I have Samsung Anycall Galaxy S. It's running with Android 2.1 and it is locked with too many pattern attempts. It asks for my email and password to unlock it. I entered the email and password but it didn't work. How to unlock my phone? Please help me.

Thank you

This operation requires that you perform a factory reset. The factory reset operation wipes all the settings and applications installed and removes any pattern locks. The storage device will remain unaffected.

To do this, please press Home + Volume Up + Power. You will enter Recovery mode from where you need to select Wipe Data/ Factory reset using the Volume buttons.

Once you complete this operation, restart the phone and you will have access to everything you need.

As a side note, if you entered your email and password, please check your email for the unlocking PIN which will be sent when you tap OK. Use that PIN on the lock screen and unlock your phone.

This is very easy. You must have internet connection to solve this problem. You go through emergency call and activate wifi. Then you give your google ac.

1- switch off the phone... restart while holding , volume DOWN , home and power button pressing and holding together for around 4 to 5 seconds... phone will go to recovery mode... select factory reset option using home button or option or back button...depending on the phone version.....

2- if the phone does not go to the recovery might go to phone testing menu...if that happens.. try restarting phone ...restart while holding , volume UP , home and power button...
