What error is displayed when you attempt on the phone?

It says wrong password

If you are pointing to the same account, and it says wrong password, the password is wrong. It is that simple.

Log into the account, and change the password to something simple, on the desktop. Now try with the phone. IF it works, then change to a more complex password, and change the phone to match.

Simple!

Wished it were that SIMPLE!!!! Password has been changed several times and it still will NOT except it. I had to factory reset my phone and to activate it I have to use my gmail acct which will not let me!!!!!

OK, so you need to AUTHORIZE that device in your account. Log into the account, and search for a device access listing. Clear the OLD phone.

Using your pc In Gmail go to Settings and then select accounts and scroll down to Change Account Settings. Go to Change password recovery options in the 'Change account settings' section.

I do not see where to change account setting on my PC under my google account.
