I bought a new phone and have forgotten my p***word to my account. Because I'm on a new phone in a new place, google is unsure if I am the owner of the account. The phone number linked to the account is my old number, and when I recovered through the back up email google still didn't trust I was the owner. If I could just be allowed access and change the p***word on my gmail my problem would be solved.
I trust that Google will make this right and come up with a resolution that is fair.
