    This morning is the last time my Gmail account worked on my Droid RAZR. Up to this point, it has worked fine and I can sign into my gmail account on my laptop so I know the password is correct, but it says:
    Connection error. The following error has prevented a successful connection: Incorrect username or password. Visit settings to correct. [NO Mechanism not available]. When I hit settings and add my password, it says: Attention. Invalid Credentials. Please help.

    Current Phone Model:
    Droid Turbo, and Nexus 6!
    I'd love to see the actual screen during this to help. So have you tried "forgot password" or "don't know my username"?

    It doesn't give me that option. It has my email address already given (it is correct and doesn't give me the option on changing it), it asks for my password and I put it in. Then I can also change the Account Name which is given as gmail or I can change Nick name which is listed as my email address again, then I click OK or cancel. Then it says Invalid credentials.

    Having same issue

    I'm having the exact same issue on my Razr Maxx. Strangely enough I have a 2nd gmail account that I set up under "email" that works fine.

    You described perfectly EXACTLY what happened with my phone this morning. Anxiously waiting to see a solution. In the meantime I turned off notifications and updates and am just using the gmail app. The e-mail sync seemed a little buggy (namely sort order).

    Well. I had this same problem a few hours ago, but the way I seemed to fix it was by going to the Play Store (originally to download the gmail app) and it had asked me to log into my gmail account, and I did so an I was spammed with notifications from my mail. I don't know if this will work for everyone, but it worked for me :happy3:

    Same Problem!

    I got the phone a few days ago and set everything up just fine. Email worked GREAT! but now for no reason, it stopped connecting. It said there was a connection error and as with the OP, I went to the setting (as it suggested) and re-entered my email information. "invalid credentials" is the error I get. I double and triple checked my info, it is all correct. WTF? anyone know why this is happening and how/when it can be fixed?

    I'm having the same problem with my Droid4. Haven't been able to connect with any of my email accts since 4:30 pm yesterday. Going to Playstore didn't help, and it also won't let me sign on to Gmail, hotmail, aol. Hoping there is a solution
