|Can't connect to Google Account on Android||cwei||6/10/09 11:19 AM|
Hi, my Android dev phone updated to firmware version 1.5 and now won't connect to my Google Account for Gmail, Calendar, Android Marketplace, etc. It won't sign in through Data Synchronization either. It tries to connect for a minute and then it displays a "can't establish a reliable data connection to the server" message.
I don't have a mobile data plan and had been using everything just fine until now through wifi. The browser still works, and I can connect to Google account stuff through the browser.
I've tried clearing data for Gmail, Calendar, Apps, etc. through Applications > Manage applications but to no avail.
Any other suggestions? I am loathe to do a factory reset in case I still can't connect to the Android Marketplace and will lose my solitaire and other favorite applications ;)

I have the same problem.. hope someone have the answer.

Not an answer to your question, but you are "loath" to do a factory reset. "Loathe" is a verb; you would loathe doing a factory reset.
Good luck fixing your actual issue, though. :)

The OED attests the earliest use of "loathe" in the sense he uses it to 1374, and the first use of the phrase "loathe to [do something]" to 1398, so congratulations on not only contributing nothing but grammar pedantry but also being completely wrong.
To the OP: I don't know if you've found an answer yet (I'd hope so since it's been three weeks now). I had to do a wipe to get mine working again after updating to 1.5 You might also check to make sure you have the latest radio, since that seemed to fix it for me. You shouldn't lose your applications, or at least I haven't in all my various upgrading and switchings.

Alex, thanks for the suggestion, I'll give it a try. I was feeling annoyed with the phone after all this, so I gave it to my husband to play with. He seems pretty happy with it at the moment. When he's done, I'll hope for a miracle and barring that, try wiping it.
PS: I misspelled "loath" in my original message, so all are correct. I'm sure in a few years we'll be writing in texting shorthand so all this spelling/grammar business will be irrelevant. :)

Hi, just wanted to agree with Alex that the hard factory reset fixed the problem.

Same problem here, same solution - factory reset and then worked first time.
