  1. Thank you this saved me too, but only after I had reset as well. Luckily I’ve had less than 24 hours.

    It’s really strange it doesn’t accept my normal password. Any idea why?

    1. Hi Dave,

      Google account users enrolled in 2-step verification need to periodically enter a special verification code, in addition to their username and password, to access Google Apps. When signing in from a web browser, they’re prompted to enter this code after entering your password. However, desktop and mobile applications aren’t configured to accept a verification code — there’s no field for entering it. In these cases, they need to sign in by entering another type of code — called an “application-specific password” — in place of their Google Account password. 😉

  2. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d most certainly donate to this brilliant blog! I suppose for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Chat soon! Miss samsung galaxy s2

    1. Maybe you should read again, Jean Paul… nothing on the article states that you should reset your password dear 🙂 I just said that it’s unfortunate that I found this solution AFTER RESETTING my phone settings to default and losing all my contacts and messages.

  3. Wow wow wow.. This is just amazing!!!
    I was struggling with this since 15 days now.. Thank u so so much!
    U are amazing!

  4. Delete the aol account. When you go into email accounts to set aol up again, DO NOT use the aol icon, use OTHER, and enter your aol info….this worked for me…I reset the accounts and the phone and nothing. After reading and doing this, it started working right away. It has something to do with Verizon and aol, possibly other carriers…..Try it…. You have nothing to lose, but, your email to gain.

    1. Which part? did you follow the steps in chronological order? What phone are you using? Umm.. actually I am not sure if the new Google interface has an effect to this process. I’ll double check 😉

  5. Whew! Have a problem, Google it! This got me enough info to get my problem solved. You cannot log out of an Android phone, at least not my Sumsung Galaxy II S, but somehow I found some Incoming settings and some Outgoing settings and did a code for each. Now I can’t find the settings page again, but at least it is fixed. I got to the “2-step” mode because I changed my password via the browser of my desktop at work.
