Google Talk for Blackberry login failure, invalid username and password

Hi Folks,


I have a new 8520 Curve from which I cannot seem to log into Google Talk using the gtalk for Blackberry application. I have absolutely no problems logging into the service with applications from Google such as Voice, however the Google Talk by RIM is failing.  I have tried with both my standard gmail account and my business Google Apps account with no success.


Here is what is happening.


Start Google Talk

I type in my username

I type in my password

I select Remember Password

I select Automatically Sign me in


I push Sign In


The Sign in Fails with "Username and Password do not Match. You Provided (xxxxx@xzy.com)."


I really honestly know my password, and have even signed into google services from this very phone in past few minutes so something else is going on.

Re: Google Talk for Blackberry login failure, invalid username and password

It is half a year later and I have EXACTLY the same problem.

Why can this app not be fixed?
