    And you're wiping data right? Not just cache? Also force stop the app.

    Yup, just went through them again. Force stopped, cleared cache then cleared data. Also included all google apps and services. Rebooted, still no luck so I went back and cleared data, force stopped and rebooted. Same result.

    I will keep going through with as many different ways to do it and maybe one will work. But so far I am still stuck.

    Thanks for your replies Droid-Xer!

    Try unchecking the boxes in privacy settings? Backup and automatic restore... in addition to clear your Google apps data? Worth a shot.

    Hmm this will drive me nuts. Get back on a PC and check your account settings. Maybe there's something in there? Or maybe log on to the web version of the market and see if you can sign in.

    Xer, done and done. I did not see anything in the account settings that would have made any difference as far as the apps on my D3 logging in and I was able to log in and went so far as to download a free app from the web to my phone and it went through just fine.

    I am just really leaning toward maybe it being something to do with how the D3 is set up. I may be way off but there HAS to be some way that we can manually log out of then log back into the main gmail account for these droids.. I just do not see me being the only D3 owner that has had to change their password via the web and by doing so had this problem on their D3.. I have owned two D1s and a D2 for a short period and have had my D3 since about a week after they were released and have NEVER had this kind of problem come up.

    I have searched and searched every avenue I can think of and have not been able to find any post or topic that is as precise as this.

    Gah I just REALLY was hoping to get around having to FR, but it is starting to look like I may have to..

    Thanks again to all who replied!!

    Mike

    Found 2 more possible solutions.

    1. Turn on wifi and try to log in. That change in network should fix it. If not...

    2. Go to settings/accounts and sync/choose your Google account/untick all boxes/then select sync now or sync all and an error should appear where you can sign in with the new password

    Xer, I have tried on and off of wifi. There is no option for me to log in is the problem. If I could log out of the main gmail account and log back in all would be perfect in the world lol.

    Also did the untick sync boxes, included restarting phone after unticking them and every time no matter what I have done it does not give me the option to change anything as far as my login name or password. Same thing for Google Talk.

    The link you posted earlier was probably the very first link I found after this problem started and it was not much help either even when going to the password reset via the browser on my phone.. If I could just log out of the main account on my phone somehow and change the password to what it is now things would be great, or at least be able to change my gmail password to what it was before yesterday morning..

    Thanks again for your help!

    Wow Mike, your thread is 3 pages. :p. But hey I was thinking with the D2/D3 firmware update coming, maybe a factory wipe is a blessing in disguise?
