Yes, you can in fact use the Gmail information that you use on your computer but understand that the account must be linked to the device.

Too many failed pattern attempts would normally lead to a ban from access for a few hours. Depending on your device, this may be an hour to about 4-5 hours. If you have been getting banned several times, the duration of the ban may be longer. This is a security feature of most smartphones.

If you have registered a Google account when you were setting up your device, you can use that to surpass the ban. However, you would need internet access for this.
