I bought a used Google Pixel phone and I’m trying to set it up on Republic. The problem is that when I try to set up the phone, “Verify your account,” and put in my Google account information, it says that I need the username that was previously used on the phone. I believe this happens with most android devices that use Google.
It says that you have to wait 24 hours, due to a recent password change. It’s been several days though. This problem seems so widespread, it’s hard to believe there isn’t a simple solution or resource on what to do. Obviously I don’t have the previous Google account information used on this phone. What should I do?
