Unable to login to gmail using my phone
Sunday 09th of October 2011
I have a real live gmail account, (not an apps account) that is unable to log into gmail, for using the market, google maps, contact sync and of course gmail.I am able to log into via my computer, and I have even changed my gmail password, hoping that would resolve it.The message I get is:Google sign-in:There was a network error while trying to sign into ***@gmail.com. Retry now or press the Back button to cancel.[Try again]If I take the message on its word, then the issue is the network. I am in China, using China Unicom, and I've also tried several wifi networks. The problem has persisted for 24 hours.In addition, I have a Hong Kong sim that is unable to log in (roaming)I'm not positive that the network error is accurate, I do have access to skype and web browsing including google.comPhone is a Motorola XT701 running 2.1, the XT701 is a milestone derivative (from what I understand)Does anyone have any thoughts? Any suggestions of other things I can do?Thanks in advance
Google adds some much needed features to Voice
Tuesday 23rd of March 2010
Update: We have received email from multiple readers reporting that this update does not play nice with some devices running custom ROMs. The error seems to render Voice unable to log into the associated google account which results in it being unable to load properly. If you are experiencing similar issues or have a solution to the problem please post below. We also recommend that you make a Nandroid backup before updating Voice so that you can revert to the older version in case the update goes wrong.Today Google added two features to Voice for Android: Voice now lets you tap contact pictures to communicate more quickly with your contacts (see picture below) and, more importantly, Voice now offers quasi instant arrival for your incoming SMS. Using the Inbox synchronization feature, your SMS are now pushed to your handset within seconds of arriving rather than every 5 minutes or when you send one out. This is huge, considering that many people use SMS similar to the way they use IM – i.e. as an ongoing chat. To get your hands on the new shiny, check Android Market. For Google
Unable to log in to Google Account
Saturday 05th of November 2011
Hi, I've been having a little trouble logging into my Google account on my phone. (HTC Inspire 4G)Apparently, I am logged out of my Google account. I can't post on Google+, I can't send emails on Gmail, etc. In the notification bar there's an error displayed that says "Sign-In Error for [username]". I click this, and up pops a window which says "You entered the wrong password or your password has changed. please enter it again below." And there's a text field. I enter my password and hit enter, and a small window which says 'Authenticiating..." pops up for a split second and dissapears, leaving me back to the window before. I know I'm entering the right password. I changed it and tried again with the new one, and same result.This started happening after I downloaded some apps off of 4shared. I don't know if this is a virus.I tried to remove this Google account from the phone, but it said that some apps required this account and that I would have to do a Factory Reset.
force close (apps not responding); want to backup before switching ROMs
Tuesday 26th of April 2011
I'm getting "The application xxxxxxxxxxx (process xxxxxx.xxxxxx.xxxxx) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." for the following things: Google Services Framework (com.google.process.gapps)Messaging (com.android.mms) [I'm unable to launch it due to this].Swype (com.swype.android) [pops up on an interval as android tries and relaunches it].Calendar (com.android.calendar) [I'm unable to launch it due to this].Contacts (android.process.acore) [I'm unable to launch it due to this]. I don't think any other apps are experiencing this. I'm wanting to take advantage of this occurrence to change ROMs. Is it safe to perform a backup of everything but restore data only after flashing the new ROM? Or if I restore SMS and MMS messages will that carry over the errors? Calendar and contacts data is all contained in either google or yahoo accounts etc cloud stored; and swype has no data I need to retain that I'm aware of. The only other app data to be saved is time recording (work hours tracker). Everything else is simply account log ins and minor stuff that is of no consequence to ma
How to completely disable gmail?
Thursday 12th of August 2010
Hey everyone,I recently have had some trouble with my gmail account and Google has decided to lock me out of my account. After almost a week of getting nowhere and being unable to access my account, I discovered a Google help page that said I need to not try to log into my account for 24 hrs before I can reset the password. At about 9pm EST last night I turned off the Gmail synching in the settings of my Droid X. However, shortly after that, I received the same alert "Unable to access gmail account" in the alerts page of the Droid, which means it's still trying to log in, which means I still won't be able to access my account. I'm waiting until 9pm before trying to log in, just in case it worked, but I doubt it did.The only way to delete a Google account from my phone is to restore it to factory settings, which I don't want to do.What do you all recommend? I can leave the phone off for 24 hrs if I have to, but that's not the ideal solution.Do you think that turning off the synching worked?Thanks,FA
Unable to sync with google
Thursday 13th of March 2014
I am having a strange issue on my Nexus 5 for the last 5 days. My phone has stopped syncing to my google account. Now I am not getting mew mails on gmail app, I can't connect to play store, can't sign in to youtube ,can't see my google cards, hangout and google calender not working. I removed my google account from settings and tried adding it back but was unable to do so. I got the following error message"Couldn't sign in - Can't establish a reliable connection to the server.This could be a temporary problem or your device may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call customer care". Today I also did a factory reset on my phone and erased all contents but I was still unable to sign in. I even tried changing my google account password on my computer but still cant log in on my phone.Here I would also like to mention that internet on my phone is working fine. And stock email app is able to access my gmail account. Kindly advise what can I do to get my phone to sync again.
Phone suddenly unable to log into account.
Monday 29th of September 2014
My wife's phone suddenly started displaying an error that it was unable to log into her Google account. I tried everything I could think of to get it to reconnect eventually even doing a factory reset, and the problem remains. I created a new Google account from a PC and added that account to the phone and it works fine. I then tried to add her real account and again received the unable to connect username/password error. I had already in the first attempts to remedy the problem gone in on the PC to log into said account and make sure the correct password was being used... it was. So I KNOW the password, I KNOW the username but no matter what I do the phone will not log in. I even shut off the 2 level security. I cannot imagine what is going on. As I said, this just began to happen one day last week, nothing was changed. I even used the phone's browser to log into the Google account in question with no problem. I GIVE UP!!!! HELP!!!!!
Can't log-in to my Google Account on Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 with Android 4.1.2.
Saturday 03rd of January 2015
My Samsung S2 stopped working properly a while ago.First the dial screen and then the adress book screen 'broke', meaning whenever I wanted to access either of them, the phone froze.While trying to fix the Calendar, I noticed that my Google Account is not syncing anymore. Now I can not access my Google Account at all, including all accociated apps and the app store. After searching for solutions some people said to remove and add my Google account again. I was able to remove it, but can't add it anymore. After resetting the phone twice I am now able to access my dial and phone book screen again, but am still unable to add my Google Account again. I tried to access the Android System Recovery Screen, but the phone just turns itself back on. (I tried both: Either pressing the volume up button and the power button; and pressing the volume up / down button as well as the power button) What else can I do?Thank you for your help in advance!
Nexus 7 Lollipop decryption issue
Wednesday 11th of March 2015
Hey there - I just updated the OS to 5.0.2 and am unable to log in to the device. After entering my password I get the following error: "Decryption unsuccessful The password you entered is correct, but unfortunately your data is corrupt. To resume your tablet, you need to perform a factory reset. When you set up your tablet after the reset, you'll have an opportunity to restore any data that was backed up to your Google account." I have not performed a factory reset yet so technically my data is still on the device. Has anybody experienced this or have any ideas how to retrieve my data? Thanks!
