When I try to add my gmail account to Lumia 520 by simply adding a Google account or adding it through Advanced Setup, it gives the error msg -Incorrect password for the imap server. But I am able to successfully add another gmail account to the same phone. Also, I could easily add my Facebook account to the phone and get regular notifications, but am not able to connect to Facebook Chat on my phone.

  • It would be much better if you split up this question into two, as the part about Facebook and Gmail are unrelated. – akid Jan 11 '14 at 12:47

  • I just tried from my 1020, asked for my login information, then gave me an option to manage my devices. – Wayne In Yak Nov 15 '13 at 17:33
  • Doing some looking t sounds like part of the issue is how Google doesn't follow the IMAP standards (why should they, they are Google). Might want to check out some of the hints in this article: wpcentral.com/… – Wayne In Yak Nov 15 '13 at 17:36
