    Have you tried rebooting the phone? Not sure if it matters or not.

    This appears to be a known issue with the pattern lock. Here is a thread where Driod users have experienced the same thing: http://androidforums.com/motorola-dr...our-droid.html



    Some of the suggestions are:

    1. Try using your Google account without adding the @gmail.com (IE: if your account is tms @ gmail . com just enter tms.

    2. Do a Factory Reset. (With the device powered off, press and hold the volume (up or down), home and pwr keys simultaneously.)

    I thought after too many attempts you just had to wait like 15 minutes before trying again (the pattern unlock). And I don't believe your pocket had anything to do with it. What's the real story?

    Please refrain from typing your posts & comments in ALL CAPS. Its considered "yelling" and is not only rude, but also difficult for other members to read.
    Thank you for your help in this matter and enjoy the forum!
