    I read everything online, tried every set of recommendations - it wont sync.
    I tried Google tab in accounts/email, it wont show log-in screen.
    I tried Advanced Sync with IMAP - it wont work.
    I tried Advanced Sync with POP - no luck.

    Any other idea? Any good app - im affraid to install UNOFFICIAL apps that can receive contacts and mails...

    Thx

    While I was on DP everything was fine with gmail. If you will do everything right, you will be prompted to add your phone as a trusted device.

    P.S. Just a tip, check your time and date, I had some issues with it.

    I just set date, time and regions properly. Now the Microsoft account is syncing. But not Gmail

    Another guess is wrong password.

    Edit 1: I've just set up a Google account on WP 8.0. So either your password is wrong, or try a soft reset (hold power + volume down buttons for 10-15 sec).

    Could be two step verification? In that case you need to generate a app specific password... Your usual password may not work!

    Info on generating an app-specific password: https:// support. google. com /accounts/troubleshooter/3141849#ts=3184288,3184780
    [apparently I'm not allowed to post links, so just take the spaces out]

    The problem for me now, is that when syncing Google, it takes you to the Google login webpage automatically making it impossible to enter the newly generated password because through the Google portal it is wrong!!! Super annoyed. I keep trying to defend windows phone but they just keep doing dumb crap like this.

    Google, Microsoft: please settle your differences and quit ******* everyone off.
