Customer Question
Hi, Pearl. This...

Hi, Pearl. This is a strange one. We forgot our Gmail account password. But the "recover password" routines won't work. We don't know our recovery email address, and the phone text code routines don't work either. Exhausted every routine we've tried over and over. If you get to this point, would you just say, punt, and create a new Gmail account and start over?

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Gmail account? What troubleshooting have you tried?

EVERYTHING! Tried every option gmail offers when you've lost an email password. We will actually get texted those code numbers, but when we enter them, nothing, gmail rejects.

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

Need advise on next steps

I just got auto-transferred to a freaking lawyer! This site is killing me. Now I see a charge for $35 on my card and I still haven't spoken to anyone about my issue.
Email technician: Sandy, Computer Specialist replied 8 months ago

I am here.

Please do the following:

A. Try to reset your gmail account password ***** the device you were accessing this gmail account more frequently in the past.

B. Please keep on trying this process of resetting the password, getting the code and then entering into the box.

Gmail team will get to know that owner has access to the phone and ultimately provide you access to the account.

C. Please fill out gmail recovery form:

https://support.google.com/accounts/contact/disabled2?p=

Keep me posted.

I will be standing by.

I've done that 10 times or more. I even completed the form and it said a team member would call me in 3 business days. Never happened.
Email technician: Sandy, Computer Specialist replied 8 months ago

When were you able to login into your gmail account last time?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
We also may have a bigger issue here. We also don't remember our Google account password! Oh boy.
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Maybe both of those passwords are the same? When I try to log in to Google, it shows our email address as the user. So, you log in to Google with your gmail account and password?
Email technician: Sandy, Computer Specialist replied 8 months ago

May I help you over secure remote session quickly?

It won't help. You will get me to the same screens I've been hitting for the last hour. Will always get stuck at "enter password".
