    just received a factory unlocked Samsung Mega i9200, i've been trying to add my google account but it kept saying the error message. two step verification was never turned on so i tried toggling it but it still didn't work. any ideas?

    Welcome to Android Central! Have you tried doing it on a different wi-fi network?

    How long have you been trying? There can occasionally be problems on the server end, so give it a day or so.

    for most of two days. if its a server issue how is it i'm able to add my account on my old phone? its the very same account i'm trying to add on the mega. and i've also tried factory reset with the buttons, that doesn't seem to start the reset process.

    If you're unable to do a hardware reset using the buttons, there might be a more fundamental hardware problem going on. Are you using this technique? How to perform a hard reset when my Samsung Galaxy Mega is unresponsive

    yup, that's the one, even tried the variation with the home button. i never got to the screen it was describing or what it showed on the videos I looked up. should i just return & exchange it?

    If you're able to exchange it, that would probably be the easiest thing to do.

    i contacted the seller & was told to delete the default account in the email but i never saw one. i even tried creating new google accounts but they were all rejected. thanks for your effort anyway.

    One other thing I forgot to suggest--make sure the date and time on the device match the network time as exactly as you can.
