Gmail on nokia 808 - unable to sign in
I have a problem signing in into my gmail account on my nokia 808.
I have already checked all the settings and these are filled in correctly.
I already switched off the Phone and started it up again without solving the problem thusfar.
My telenet mailbox does work correctly ?
Why not gmail ?
One thing I find strange is that under the mailbox settings for gmail - advanced settings - incoming and outgoing mails, there is a **** ( 4 digits ) password that I have never entered. My passwords are longer than that. I think that here may be the cause ?
in telenet there is that same 4 digit password ( ****) but telenet does work.
Now question : I cannot change that password or I haven't found how to. I tried entering the password that I normally use but this does not work.
Where do I find that mystery password ? I think it must be some kind of standard setting ? Anyway I cannot change that, or I don't know how .
Thanks for any help
I think you are trying to access a WEB only mail service using smtp protocols. You need to make sure that WiFi on the drop down menu is enabled and you have a service. The mystery password is not a mystery at all it is what the phone does to protect the password you have entered in case anyone else rumages through yer phone.
