    Hi everyone,

    I am fairly new to the iPhone world, I've been Android for the past 4 years. I am having an issue with my Gmail. I add my Gmail account via Exchange so I can get push and calendar/contact support. Every 3 or 4 days I'll go into my mail app and a pop up says "Gmail Password incorrect". The only way to fix it is that I have to go to Safari and log in to Gmail (or another Google service), then it prompts me to fill out a captcha. Once i do that, everything works until the next time it happens.

    I've done some research here and other places and have tried a lot of fixes: changing the password, 2 step identification, app-generated passwords, etc. Nothing works.

    It seems to be my iPhone. I had been using Gmail on my iPad since October with no issues.

    So, does anyone know what i can do to fix it?

    Or, is there another way to sync my Google Calendar? Therefore i can forego using Exchange and instead use IMAP and/or the Gmail app?

    Thank you

    If you purchased your iPhone after January 31 of this year, you will be unable to use the Microsoft Exchange configuration with Gmail with the exception being its paid services. The following links may be of assistance to you:

    I actually went through that thread prior and did the unlock captcha. Still doesn't work. Thanks though.
