Complete tech noob here.
I recently bought a Samsung galaxy pocket intended to be used as a cheap secondary phone (YouTube, music etc.) but while trying to set it up I noticed that I can't sign into my Google account ("username or password wrong" despite double checking, trying different accounts and changing my password) and that the pre-installed YouTube app doesn't work ("there was a problem while starting up. please check your network connection and system time").

My network connection works just fine and I reset the time and cleared the app data in the settings but nothing happened.
I tried looking it up and the only results came from a forum way too advanced for me to understand any of it, especially since English isn't my first language.

Is there a way to still use the phone or is it just too outdated? I'd be willing to try my hand at working around some stuff to try and 'crack' it (if that's even possible) if somebody could walk me through it.

Thanks in advance
