I just got a new Palm Pre 2 because the old Palm Pixi Plus is having problems.
And now, I am trying to add contacts.
I am having trouble with Yahoo! and Google. I do not care which one I use -
as long as I transfer my contacts to the phone, I'm happy.
I could not add the gmail account. I.e., on the "Preferences & Accounts" window, I click "Add
an account", then click "Google". Then I entered the full gmail address & password, clicked
"Sign in" and get "Unknown error". I know the address and password are correct since I can
easily login on the computer. And I am NOT using 2 step verification which creates problem
(as mentioned in other webOS forum posts). I also tried making a new gmail account and hoped
to login - no luck - still the same "Unknown error".
So I tried using my Yahoo! account. This time I login on the phone but did I really? The phone
goes back to the "Preferences & Accounts" window without any error message. One email in my
Yahoo! account says I successful sync with Palm. But I fail to see any Yahoo! contacts.
On the "Preferences & Accounts" window, I note two "ACCOUNTS", "Palm Profile" and Yahoo!. When
I click "DEFAULT ACCOUNT" and only Palm Profile" show up (unlike on the old phone, I see two
accounts to choose from).
Update: I just tried rebooting the PP2. Now when I try to login my Yahoo! account I get "The
account credentials you entered are incorrect. Try again."
For both Google and Yahoo!, I am NOT interested their emails, just the contacts.
I spent several hours searching this forum - only saw tips to make another gmail account and
reboot. What workarounds do you suggest?
