    Take it into a carrier store and see if they can help you.

    If you still have your Google log in you can try see if Android Device Manager is active from a pc. If so you can Lock with a new password and you're in.

    I think that's what he meant when he said that he can't remember the gmail account.

    Yes. I was thinking he can't remember the prompts, but he wouldn't need those if he could log in, duhh!.
    I should get to bed.
    When you're right you're right.

    On your PC, go to gmail.com, enter your gmail address and click the forgot password link. Gmail will give you several options for password recovery.

    If none of them work to get you into your account, then I am afraid you are simply out of luck.

    Are you the original poster. Any luck getting in? Can you describe what lock you had on.
