    A couple of days ago I updated my Lumia 925 to WP8.1 and after that I have encountered a couple of annoying issues.
    Today my Gmail account stopped sync and every time I tried to open the email app i got this error message: "error code 80072f05"
    I then removed my Google account to try to reinstall it again, I thought this would fix the problem. But then I encountered the second issue; I cannot create a Google account. Every time I click on the "Create google account" it just re-appears again.
    I filmed it so you can see what happens:


    Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

    Kind regards,

    Hi again:

    I managed to solve the issues myself, so please go ahead and lock the thread.

    The problem was that the time settings was not correct: The date was on the 22nd of March instead of as today (4th of August). When changed to today I could create the Gmail account again.
    This issue stems from when I updated to WP8.1 the mobile freezes and crashes almost once a day (everything turns black and then you cannot restart the mobile again.) I have to soft reset the phone every time and this probably led to the strange time.
    If anyone have a fix for the crashes you are more than welcome to reply here. Maybe it has to do with some apps not being fully functional with WP8.1? I don't have that many though...
