I recently have had some trouble with my gmail account and Google has decided to lock me out of my account. After almost a week of getting nowhere and being unable to access my account, I discovered a Google help page that said I need to not try to log into my account for 24 hrs before I can reset the password.
At about 9pm EST last night I turned off the Gmail synching in the settings of my Droid X. However, shortly after that, I received the same alert "Unable to access gmail account" in the alerts page of the Droid, which means it's still trying to log in, which means I still won't be able to access my account.
I'm waiting until 9pm before trying to log in, just in case it worked, but I doubt it did.
The only way to delete a Google account from my phone is to restore it to factory settings, which I don't want to do.
What do you all recommend? I can leave the phone off for 24 hrs if I have to, but that's not the ideal solution.
Do you think that turning off the synching worked?
