Customer Question
I cannot access gmail...

I cannot access gmail. I do NOT have a cell phone and since I am locked out of my acct for verification you cannot send me an email. Catch 22.

Technician's Assistant: Are you logged into your Gmail account on any other devices?

Yes at home however I have not been on home comp yet so no idea if the issue is there as well.

Technician's Assistant: Do you have security questions or a phone number on file to help reset your password?

No, I did put phne # on as any one who knows me can call # and assess acct.

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

Please help

> I cannot access gmail.

Do you mean you cannot access your mailbox from ANY device, or just inaccessible from specific devices such as computers or phones?

>***@******.***

It is asking for my phone number, as I said I have no cell number. It wants verification with a phone number and it will text me a code. Again NO CELL. I did not add a security question when acct was set up and I did not add home phone #.

Are you a gmail tech expert? Am I speaking to a company other than Google gmail support?
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

You are speaking with Bing. We are JustAnswer. We are not Google. Google doesn't provide this kind of peer-to-peer support for their consumers' services (free services) such as Gmail and Google Search.

If this is your first time here, I would like to go over a few things:

  1. Please be aware that you are using JustAnswer, a paid service providing professional support with guaranteed quality. This is not a service for $5 (your deposit). Please advise if you want to continue or not. Thanks.
  2. You may see an offer for a phone call or remote support for an extra fee, this is not from me, by the site automatically. If you think it is unnecessary or unrelated for your question, please disregard it.

Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

> It wants verification with a phone number and it will text me a code.

I speculate you are referring to your password ***** process. Where did you do it? On mobile device, or one a computer?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Correct. My password ***** not chged, it says it cannot recognize the device I am using. I have used this device for 3 yrs.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I was on comp. again I HAVE NO CELL PHONE.
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

I am in a remote session now. Will update here again once finished. Thanks for your patience.

do you have a solution, can you help?
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

I guess you have tried Google Account Recovery. If not, please click HERE to start a recovery (please do it only for once)

If yes, please let me know ALL questions ever asked by Google during your process, if possible.

Thanks.

I have not, I followed the online questions in Gmail and was just going in a circle as it kept asking for my phone number to text. I guess they think the whole world uses cell phones. I do not.
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

> guess they think the whole world uses cell phones. I do not.

But probably you marked the phone number as cell phone when you signed up with Google. That's why Google asked so.

I did not.
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

When was the last time you successfully access the Gmail account? On which device? Using what program?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
They kept send me messages for a number and I kept ignoring the messages.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I was just into it yesterday from the comp I am using right now.
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

I would suggest a remote session now, so I can

(1) guide you walk through the reseting process in a proper manner.

(2) find out saved password ***** it is hidden somewhere on your computer.

Please advise. Thanks.

I will decline
Email technician: bbao, IT Consultant replied 5 months ago

Okay, then it would too difficult to guess what is happening there though you can tell some of them via texting.

I opt out and let other experts to help further.
