Smile Problem Resetting Gmail Account on 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Folks,
I am so sorry for the long post,but this is my ordeal

I don't know what went wrong. I successfully set up my gmail account on my 8310 about 3 months ago and have used it without a problem. I recently reset my gmail password, and all is fine, able to send and receive mails on my computer.

A few days later, I received a notice on my BB about my gmail account not activated (can't recall exact message).Messages not being received on my BB gmail

These are what I have done all to no avail:

Logged on to my AT&T BIS site and entered my new gmail password
Resent the service book (twice)
Did a battery pull a couple of times
Deleted the gmail accountfrom BB
Added the same gmail account using as the mail server. Also tried pop server
Enabled IMAP on my gmail settings.

The error message I keep getting after setting up the account reads:
"Cannot log in:Please verify your email address,username and password.If the error persists,contact email provider)

Note: I have no issues at all with my aol and optonline accounts, its just the gmail.

Please help!

Frra, has made my suggestion. I was going to suggest downloading the gmail app and use that. I use it on my bold and its great. Also one of the benefits of the new gmail app is the ability to log into multiple gmail accounts at the same time and get notification when anyone gets new e-mail, so that's a great plus (at least for me).

As to the solution to your current issue, I'm not sure why you would still be having an issue as you have done all the stuff that I would have suggested.

Hi, Same problem. I entered a bad username, try to connect... nothing (obiously)Then enter the correct user, password and it works fine. Doing it the app. clears the password, maybe that did the trick.
