    It just started doing it out of the blue this morning. No changes have been made to my phone. I did clear the cache, but that was a couple of days ago...it's been working fine since. Until this morning, I mean. I've tried restarting the phone, switching WiFi, turning off WiFi, and resetting my password. None of that worked. Any ideas what might have caused this, and more importantly, how to fix it? :thinking:

    Google is having issues with gmail, drive and other services this morning. It is affecting a large number of us.

    Several other articles out there also reporting this this morning.

    Yep, was a problem signing in on the PC for G-Mail. It is their side.

    I've used it a few times this morning and downloaded an app. No issues for me.
