Why cant I connect to my Google account


AC Question

I was having trouble signing in to my google account, and after attempting various things with no success, i reset my device.

I still cannot connect to my Google account. when I open any google app, and it asks me to sign in, instead of the expected sign in interface, i am shown a message saying the folowing:

"Can't establish a reliable connection to the server. This could be a temporary problem or your Android device may not be provisioned for data services. If it continues, call customer care."

It is definitely not an internet connection problem, as everything else (other than the google apps) work fine.
