***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
Original YouTube account not working

When I try to log on to YouTube with the Android app, it only has my gmail account. I tried linking my account to the phone directly from the website, it showed up in the login menu, but it didn't log in correctly. I really want to be able to post videos from my phone again. But I can't do that when my account is messed up. If anyone has suggestions or questions, please say so.

I believe I found a solution. I found a third party youtube app that allows me to use the sign in bars. If it doesn't work, I'll repost on here... Wish me luck.

I would start by Clearing the Data/Cache for Youtube on the phone and then it will re-prompt you for the login info on the next launch of it.

 

Menu / Settings / Applications / Downloaded / scroll down to YOUTUBE & Click on it /  press CLEAR DATA  & CLEAR CACHE

Tried it, didn't work. When I went to log in to youtube from the app, it offered my gmail again, and the chance to make a new gmail account. No youtube account was available.

I would go to YouTube.Com using your PC and check that your settings are all correct -- specifically, check your Email settings online ... It really sounds like you have something out of sync between the phone & YouTube online. 

 

Also, I would Uninstall the YouTube APP, power off the phone, power up, and Re-download & install it.
