if i have 2-step verification off should i need to use application specific password?
i recently changed my password from my android, when it suddenly said incorrect password-even though the password was working on the PC. i was then able to access all google accounts successfully from my PC with the new password but not from my phone. I have spent about 20 hours trying to remedy this, looked all over. None of my google apps work. i either get incorrect password, failure to login, or a message telling me it can not authenticate.
I have checked and the 2-step verification is 'OFF'. The only post that i found sort of help suggests that i get the application-specific password for the phone. But it looks to me like that is only if the 2-step verification is "ON" (again, i did not turn it on, and it says that it is off when i checked the account settings).
thankyou to anyone, please help if you can
