Anytime I do an PC update or it does it automatically Google decides to lock me out of my account, no matter if I give the the RECOVERY email address or not.
They insist I use a fricken cell phone to unlock my account. So if you don't own a cellphone I reckon your some sort of out cast no worthy of a fricken Gmail account. At least that's what there saying, making a cellphone mandatory is like if I was not the same color as them, religion, creed, etc. I reckon the next thing will be everyone has to drive a Tesla and wear Armani etc.etc. I'm pissed and if there's anyway at all I will fix there wagon for'em. They haven't heard the last of me yet.
That sucks. Is there someone else's cellphone number you can use (someone you trust - maybe someone here on the Patch) and when this happens you have a workaround?
No sir I really don't. There's no one near by that I can depend on for such a thing and to be truthful I would hesitate to ask anyone for such help on a regular basis as often as it happens.
I have used others cell phone numbers twice before but, the second time they still wouldn't unlock it. Probably because the second time I used a different number and I have no number on file. I thought about getting a burner phone but, even then I'd have to pay for minutes on it and no matter how many minutes you have they have an expiration time and you have to buy more minutes to keep it working. It be like paying for Gmail and I just aint gona do that. I have my Hughes account and all my mail goes there first anyway, it's just Gmail is a lot easier and nicer to use (sorry to say). I reckon I should get over it and just use my Hughes email but, the principles just aggravate me. When someone does me wrong I have a hard time letting go sometimes.
I do not know what you are complaining about. There are any number of Russian, North Korean and Chinese computer nerds who would love to help you with your Google account.
Seriously, I have a similar problem but use my Yahoo email to re-open my Gmail account.
Yes sir, and I have my Hughes email account as my RECOVERY email but, they still won't unlock it. They say thank you but, we still can't verify you own the account. What fricken part of RECOVERY email don't they understand, fricken morons! Sorry, it just REALLY pisses me off.
I read on there forum one guy lost a months revenue because the jack-asses locked him out of his account and he has a cell phone.
Google is just full of the usual employees that don't wish to do there job properly, just the easy way by ignoring problems and passing
them off to the next guy that does the same. Lets face it, Americans don't want to work for a living anymore. They just want to show up to work
and do as little as possible as they can get away with and go home expecting a full pay check at the end of the week. There lazy and worthless and
stand around pointing there finger at someone else as the problem. If they'd get up off there lazy asses and do some real work
they wouldn't have to try and pass the buck but, its easier for them to be lazy no accounts. And they wonder why America is failing.
