Default any mobile phone techs need help

my son has managed to lock himself out of his samsung galaxey with the patteren lock thingy and doesnt remember his gmail password. GOD kids!!!!! anyone have any idea how to hard reset these phones have searched all over the net, vol up down call keys pressed when booted up ect even tried a dialer code but no luck. My other sons HTC was easy to do but that method doesnt work either. Anyone got any clues or do i take it back to the phone shop

Which Samsung Galaxy is it? I would think hold volume up and the home button while powering on should get you to recovery.

Failing that, volume down, home and power on should be download mode. Plug the phone in go your PC, download Odin and the latest firmware and flash it with reset ticked, but that's a little more complicated.

Hmm, don't know that phone.

Maybe this would help - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1149110

Put CyanogenMod on it! W00p!
