Having issues with google account connection
When I try and launch the Market app I'm getting the message "You must add an account to the device to continue. Do you want to add one now?" I select yes and nothing happens (the popup disappears and that's that). I can't find anything in the settings for adding your google account other than gmail, which is set up.
I've searched around a bit and seen a couple of threads with this issue but they were with rooted phones (mine isn't) and the advice was more technical that I care to get into.
I discovered also that when I try to launch google talk I get a "Sorry! The application Talk (process...) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."
More detail: I first discovered a problem when latitude completely disappeared as an option on maps. Worse, navigation was force closing as soon as it tried to launch the map (immediately after selecting destination). I remembered that maps was recently updated so I checked my wife's phone and she had an older version of maps. I tried removing map updates, and that didn't help. I discovered the issue with the market when I went to try and update maps again. I figured this was why I was having an issue with latitude also.
I installed google voice a long time ago but never set it up, so I tried doing that and had no problems. I just tried launching google+ and it says "connection lost". Nothing in the settings there for connecting an account either.
This isn't a new phone and I've not had any issue with market/maps/talk before.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
