Despite thinking that you entered the correct Google account information, there is a possibility that you are actually entering the incorrect information. You can check to make sure that you're entering the correct information by going to this Google website to try to recover it. If you're unable to recover your Google account information, you will need to perform a Factory Reset on your Android phone. Unfortunately, this will wipe all of your phone's data to bring it back to its original factory settings. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Android phone, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. Once the reset is complete, be sure to write down the lockscreen pattern you choose to lock your phone with on a piece of paper so you can refer to it in the future should you forget the pattern again. Keep this piece of paper stored in a safe and secure location so it doesn't become lost or stolen. In addition, be sure to log your Android phone into a Google account to which you know the correct information so you have another way to unlock your phone if you forget the pattern lock again.
