    As the title states I am currently a BlackBerry user (Bold 9900) who is (hopefully) getting his Nexus 5 dropped off tomorrow. I would like to know if having the two factor authentication turned on will cause any issues? I use the Google Authenticator app on my BlackBerry currently. Will be swapping SIM's.

    Thanks!

    There's an app on the Play Store by Google called 'Authenticator' that gives you the code. No worries.

    Right, but what about when I first get/turn on the phone. I assume I have to "sign in" or something like that with my account details...

    You won't need the two-step verification when you're signing into your Google account when you first start the phone.

    I just tested it out.
    When you try to sign in, it says couldn't sign in and says you need to sign in on the web. Once you're signed in, it asks you to do your 2-step verification.
