Customer Question
We are trying to...

We are trying to recover my husband's gmail account. He has a new phone and number, never updated his account settings so now he can't log into his account.

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had this issue with your Gmail account?

For about two weeks. He can't remember his password ***** his phone number has changed. We've also switched internet providers so he can't get an email verification code. I've tried everything!

Technician's Assistant: How do you access your email most often? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

On his phone. Which is a new phone.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

The last password, all the step 2 verification questions, but because he had a new number and we have a new email address we can't get the codes.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Email Expert to know before I connect you?

New phone, new email address, new number.
