Locked out of my EVO

I locked my EVO because i forgot the pattern to my unlock phone. I cant remember my gmail password and i cant do nothing with my phone. I tried to take the battery out but it will ot get me past the screen. I went online and reset my username and password at gmail but it is still not working. I can not even get in the phone to reset it. What do i need to do to get into my phone?

Re: Locked out of my EVO

You'll need to hard reset your phone most likely.  You will lose any programs installed and any data.

So that I don't have to type it all out:

Let me know if that works for you.

Re: Locked out of my EVO

you dont have to DO A HARD RESET!!!!! I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DO IT TOO BUT I FOUND THIS LIFE SAVER AND I LOST NOTHING...

here is the solution! I was trying to unlock my phone for hours right before i was about to do a hard reset I found this and i didnt lose anything.... hope it helps https://www.google.com/accounts/UnlockCaptcha and I put my info in and it said device unlocked, I re-entered my info on my phone and it took me to a new screen to set a new pattern and BAM my device was unlocked and then you can change the settings to take the pattern off...Hope this helps!
