    hey guys - i'm having a problem and can't figure out how to fix it. i had to change my gmail password a couple of days back and did so via web. i have tried again and again to reset my password on my phone but it won't accept it saying: "Authentication failed. Please verify your username/password."

    after trying a few times, i deleted the account and tried to re-add it but keep getting the same message. i know my password is correct cause i have logged on/off via the web using it. i have also rebooted my phone but still...nothing.

    any suggestions?

    I had the same thing happen to me with my AOL account one day. I can't remember if I did anything other than this, but I think I remember restarting my phone and that fixed it. Worth a shot I guess.
