when I try to access the android market it tries to sign in to my google account, but then fails and says that it couldn't create a secure connection to my servers. is this because I am using wi-fi, and to get around this do I have to use my 3g connection.

Brody, wifi should work better than 3g.

- Do you have an active Google account?
- Are you signed in?
- double check your settings and ensure that the google sign in settings are properly in place. (settings - accounts and sync)

Yes, my Google account is active, and I can access my emails etc from my phone, but I can't add my phone to it, so I can't download anything from the market.

Very strange! If you are able to access email, must be logged into your Google account. Do you have Google Play. installed on phone? Have you been able to download anything? What phone do you have with what software? What carrier?

No, I don't have Google Play installed, my phone is a Huawei Ideos X1, OS 2.2, my provider is Optus, but because I am using Wi-Fi it shouldn't be a problem with them. I can download files off most websites, but not android market or Google play.

Ehm, you have no Play Store.... do you have the Market? Otherwise it would be no wonder, that you can´t login... :wink:

So, your initial problem was, that you can´t establish a secure connection. If it´s still the problem, try one of the following solutions:

  • Do not sychnonize date and time thru the network automatically, take alook that you have the right Timezone (Eastern-, Central-, Western-Standard)
  • Menu->Settings->Date and Time->Automatic (has to be deactivated)
  • Change from WiFi to 3G and back and try again. Maybe a reboot of your phone may nessecary
  • Logout and login into GTalk
  • Delete Data and Cache of the Market/Play Store

I had problem to sign into Google account on my Android OS @ first start of my recovered mobile (SE Xperia X10 mini pro). I had enabled double authentication for my account. Probably this is why I couldn't log in...
So solution which worked for me is: I went to https: // google. sk/ accounts - there are spaces, coz I am new user and forum would not allow me to post links due to spam. (this said login screen when it said bad username or password... it said for recover your account go there... I went. But I was sure my password was absolutely correct)
I added additional email address (address of another registration example: After this I was able to log on with my additional email address to my google account.
So I recover my amdroid to factory settings again and then I used my alternative log in. And it worked! I was so happy, coz I went through 2 hours troubleshooting about my wifi, 3g, another google accounts... and so on :P

So I hope it will help some1 with same problem.
