    Ipad 2 won't accept my gmail un and pw

    Just got a very nice Ipad 2 and it all seems to work well---I can use Safari and then gmail but want to be able to use gmail from the 'mail' icon on the home screen. When I set up the account, the Ipad tells me the un and pw are not correct when I know they are----Any ideas?

    Got this from Google's website. Could be worth trying out.

    Invalid Password Prompt. If you see an error message that reads "Invalid Password", it's likely that you'll need to unlock your account by solving a short CAPTCHA. Visit the appropriate link below and fill in your email address, password, and the letters in the CAPTCHA box:
    General users and Google Apps customers: https://www.google.com/accounts/UnlockCaptcha
    Google Apps customers not yet on the new infrastructure: https://www.google.com/a/your_domain.../UnlockCaptcha. Be sure to replace your_domain.com with your actual domain name.

    Thanks very much. I tried it but still get "either your pw or em is incorrect". Oh well, I can still access gmail via Safari but I'd like to use the mail icon. You can't always get what you want as Mick Jagger sings

    I like your attitude toward the problem but we can get this working for you. Are you entering in your info via settings-mail, calendars, contacts-then gmail or are are you trying it through exchange? Also, like KevinJS said, you may want to check some of your settings though gmail. You also might try just rebooting your iPad.

    Hi Jim...sorry to give you another link to add to what Kevin has given you, but here is Google's setup for iOS.

    Maybe this may help you. Also, have you tried to Force the mail app to close? Or have you tried to restart the iPad? Have you tried to delete the account and enter it again? Let us know.

    If you go to iPad settings/mail, contacts, calendar/go to your gmail account. There you should be able to delete your account. Once done, try to put is back in and see if it will accept.

    You could try going to the desktop version of Gmail on your computer, go to settings (the gear symbol) and go to POP/IMAP. Make sure IMAP is enabled and save. Then try setting it up on your iPad. Racking brains here.
