    Now check which devices are accessing your Google Account

    Need to backup my Contacts from phone as i am not using my own windows live id. How can i do this?

    So where are your contacts now? Windows Live? On the device? If they are on the new device and you don't have the password for the primary account (Windows Live), then I think you are kinda screwed, but I think you can open a Google account on your phone
    and then sync the contacts to that acount. Check the contacts are there (and remove any unwanted from the previous owner) then export them into your Windows Live account, reset the phone with the new Live account as the primary account which will sync into
    your device.

    Unless i'm missing something?

    Mailservers are under constant attacks from vandals, so they put in extra security measures i.e. by checking IP addresses and devices used to access the mailbox. On top of that, Google have prompted you to enable extra security on the account earlier, could
    be a long time ago, probably in the webmail on a computer - and this extra security is now blocking access from the phone, since the built-in mail software on the phone can not handle the extra verification steps required.

    This extra security can be disabled again by following the link in the mail from the Google account team

    and adjust the security settings back to something the phone hopefully can handle.

    Also Google - Apps - in the phone browser - still has a selection of apps and web access to Google services for Symbian phones. I don't have a Google account so I can't check if everything still works.

    Please let us know if you get it sorted out.

    For me it needs to be a bit more specific, it is only useful is someone gets into my account outside the UK, if someone in the UK hacks in I wouldn't be able to tell
