  • Close, but not cigar. My new Android phone "thinks" for quite a while but eventually says that an "account could not be setup."

  • I have gone through all the steps on this page. I get a reply on my android phone that says "network not available. Try again later". Reminds me of the old 8-ball. Can you help me. Centurylink says it's not a connection issue. T-Mobile says it is. I'm stuck.
