I haven't been to the market in a month or two and tried to go yesterday. I got a message that says "you must add an account to the device to continue. Do you want to add one now?" I click yes and it goes back to my home screen. What do I do?
I can still access my gmail account, but it's still giving me that message. If I go to the settings and do the other thing you were suggesting, is it going to delete all of my apps that I've downloaded?
The Market is just a list of the apps you installed from the Market but it does not remove anything without you interacting by clicking the uninstall option, you will be ok because it does not mess with any apps you have installed or the ones you have listed in the market..
It only cleard the user data from the app and it will rebuild the data when you open the application again..
I've taken many calls on this issue, and I think I found the solution. This may have something to do with your Google account's authorization. It seems when logging into multiple apps, Google treats it as another device which trips some security measure which forces you to verify the account. To override these settings, the best thing to do is visit the Google Unlock Captcha site. Once you've verified your account, restart your device. If it asks you to add a Google account, do it one more time, but it should be the last.
Please post your results once you've tried this.
Also, if you purchase a Certified Pre-Owned device, we do give a one year warranty on the phone. We treat it just like a new device. If the representative says that yours is out of warranty, just say, "This is showing out of warranty because it's a Certified Pre-Owned device. I ordered it from you all around dd/mm/yy if you want to see the order in your system." They'll verify the order then override the system.
Hope this helps!
Ive been having the same exact problem and have tried EVERYTHING that has been suggested even the last suggestion on this site.. still is not working.. and now my gmail on my phone wont work as well..

Kathyo184, if the steps MikeS1 provided do not work, a Hard Reset is another solution. This will help with the Market, and access to your Gmail accounts. For steps to perform a Hard Reset, please select the following link:
