As said in title, I changed my password in my PC and them my iPhone 4 gmail would no longer give me access, saying incorrect password. I have spent hours looking up various so called fixes, the last one being to delete the gmail account my my iPhone then go in & select "add new account" under IMAP. Followed directions plugging in info into incoming & outgoing mail etc. but it still won't work. Now when I hit email icon it says "searching" and never connects. All it shows is inbox and drafts no other boxes anymore and it won't connect. It claims I have 34 emails (from before this happened) which I cannot access and won't allow me to receive, compose send or even access email through iPhone now. I'm concerned about lost info, though I have it on PC fine but how to I reconnect gmail from scratch on my iPhone 4 again?
