I can't log in through my android Gmail application and have to log in using the browser. I am kind of confused. The response I got from the app was "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server".

  • Check your phone date and time. If it is wrong probably you may receive this error. – Sarvap Praharanayuthan Jun 26 '13 at 10:25
  • Have you tried connecting on a different network? Either a different WiFi network or just your phone's mobile network? – VarnerBeast14 Jun 26 '13 at 13:21
  • Yes I used a different WiFi and my mobile network but I keep having the same problem – user127028 Sep 11 '15 at 22:02

Here are some things you can try to get things working right:

1. Try an alternate data connection.

Try other data connections, preferably faster WiFi, if available.

2. Check your devices Date and Time.

Either wait for your service providers to set date and time automatically or you can manually update the time by Settings > Date & time

3. Reset your Google apps.

  1. Go to “Settings” > “Applications” > “Manage applications” > “Google Apps“, then tap the “Clear data” button.
  2. Go to the Home screen.
  3. Select “Settings” > “Data synchronization” > “Google“.
  4. Enter your Google credentials.

This problem usually occurs when you try to connect over the wifi connection. Try switching to the mobile internet for the first time login, it will work.

  • Hello user269156. I apologize for the inconvenience caused by me. I must have confused the user who tried your suggestion earlier but in vain with the OP and then judged the solution as both redundant and unhelpful. Your answer should not have been deleted. – Firelord Nov 22 '19 at 20:25
