Issues Adding a Second Gmail Account in Android

Posted on 08 Oct 2010

Whoa there, friend. This post is quite old and the solution may no longer be relevant. Just a fair warning...

I’m unable to add a second Gmail account to my Samsung Fascinate. Each time I try, I get this annoying error:

You don’t have a network connection.

This could be a temporary problem or your phone may not be provisioned for data services. Please try again when connected to a mobile network, or connect to a Wi-Fi network. If the problem continues, call Customer Care.

Regardless of whether I’m on Wifi or 3G, and even though I can utilize other internet services fine, I was getting this error for days. Until I found the wonky solution.

It seems stupid; it seems like it won’t work. But it does. Go figure.


The Clean Architecture in PHP

I've written a book on the Clean Architecture in PHP, which covers how to cleanly organize and decouple your code in a way that prepares it to survive and be easy to maintain for the long term.
