I had to change my password on Gmail today. How do you change it on the phone? i looked FAQ and didn't find anything
Easiest solution, though it makes no sense why it works...
In order to enter in your new password for your gmail account, open up the market app do a search, it will prompt you for a gmail password (no idea why) enter in your new gmail password. done.
Yep, this worked for me. I reset my Gmail password on my computer, could not get into my Gmail on my Droid. I did like you suggested and went into the Market, if prompted me for my password, entered the new password and got into the Market and also my Gmail.
Thank you for the tip
Each time I try to do this, I get the curly characters. I've typed in 50 of them and they still just keep coming up curly characters rather than letting me enter the password....any suggestions?
Called Verizon and did a full factory reset. Found that my apps and contact list came back and all is well. Used my google login and password during the reset. Phone works well now and all apps came back.
Know that I'm late to this thread, but this just happened to me (changed G-mail pswd on my computer and got locked out of my Google account on my Droid). I tried several of the recommended solutions (here and on other forums) with no luck. Using the "Market" technique I too got the curly verification from hell and gave up after dozens of attempts. Then this morning I tried it once again (accessing the Market and using new G-Mail pswd) and presto, one try with no "curly" verification - everything is working now including G-mail.
