Android connection problems to Google servers

Hi guys,

One of my friends ran across an issue with her new Samsung Galaxy S and I wanted to jot it down, since it seems like she is not the only person to have come across this issue. The fix in her case was quite simple.

A quick description of the issue:

When you try to sync your Google account with your phone, after inputting your username and password, the following message appears:

Your phone has to connect with Google servers to set up your account. This may take up to five minutes.

The after a while it shows the following message:

Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server.

And the fix in this case:

Go to Menu -> Settings -> Accounts & Sync -> Background Settings (Tick this)

And then Settings -> Accounts & Sync -> Add Account -> Google -> (create your account or log in)

Hope this helps some of you.

Enjoy your Android devices :)
