    There are a couple of possibilities, so let's try the easy stuff first. Several Members have had this problem and, on a number of occasions, the solution was simply that, by default, the iPad capitalises the first letter of what it thinks is a new sentence. So, if your password is all lower-case, check carefully as you type it in that the iPad isn't automatically setting the first letter to a capital. If it is, then backspace and cancel the Shift key before typing the first letter.

    If it's not that problem, get back to us; we have some more ideas!! But, as I said, let's try the easy stuff first...

    Good Luck

    Tim

    Is 'Settings', 'General', 'Restrictions', 'Accounts' set to 'Off'?

    If it's 'On' this will prevent you from adding a new email account.

    Don't worry - plenty more ideas if that one doesn't work....

    Wow - it's windy up here in the NE of Scotland, hope it's not too bad with you...

    Aargh - it should be 'On' - ie. allow changes...typo

    This might help

    I had a similar problem when i tried to help my brother submitting gmail account to his ipad2 this morning
    I went crazy cause there was nothing wrong with anything but it just kept saying 'wrong password'
    I tried his gmail account to my iphone there and what the hell it didn't work on my iphone neither
    I came to think that this could be a network problem so i turned my iphone's hot spot on and hooked his ipad to it
    And guess what it worked
    This may sound strange though the problem was the name of the AP
    I changed my brother's AP name which was consisted with alphabet, underbar and some numbers to just alphabets
    Try this

    Ok, it late at night for me, so I'm probably just slow. What is the AP name?
