Long story, but basically I don't know my phone's lockscreen pattern. I also don't know my e-mail address or password. How can I bypass the lockscreen?

All depending on if you are rooted or not rooted. I don't know what you can do if your not rooted, but if your rooted, go into recovery, and reflash your rom. Yeah you'll loose everything, and I hope you backed everything up.

Or if rooted, adb and via an update query turn it off in the sqlite db, had to do that for a mate who broke his hand and couldn't do the swipe / gesture unlock with his other hand one time
