Android prompted to enter your Gmail account username and password, but for some strange reason it wont accept it. The good news is you can still unlock the phone by doing a Hard factory data reset and will be able to use your android smartphone once again. The bad news is you will loose all the data saved on your device. The microSD data will remain intact, but still I would advice you to remove the microSD for doing the procedure.Switch off your Android Phone, remove the battery for 3-5 seconds. Insert the battery again and do not switch on the device.
