    Question Can't add gmail account

    Trying to add a gmail account to a Curve 8520 and it says the "username and/or password are incorrect. Please contact Gmail.com if problem persists" or along those lines. The password is definitely correct because I'm logging into gmail online no problem.

    Tried adding the same gmail account to a Bold 9900 and that wouldn't work either, so it's not the phone. Never had this before.

    What's going on?

    Is it a Google Apps Gmail account? If so you will have different ports and security than the normal account. Sometime changing your password to a very simple one while you try to connect is helpful.
    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    Google won't let me change it to something simple: it says it's 'too weak' a password.

    Try making it longer but stick to all lower case and just letters.

    Make sure the "All Mail" label is checked for access by IMAP servers. If it's not, set will give that error message.
