    Hello, I did a factory reset last night and ever since then, I can't log into my Google account. I can log in via web browser on my computer and have changed my password, but still can't access the account on my phone, even after waiting 24 hours.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Ace GT-S5830i, Android version 2.3.6 Gingerbread, on Talkmobile (vodafone piggyback).

    It's telling me my username and password do not match.

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    If you have enabled 2 step verification you will need an "app password" (just to be used once) to get gingerbread to work. See here:


    If thats not it, I suggest you register on the forums and post another question since you can't reply directly in the same thread without registering.
