- Install Google Play Services, you won’t be able to login if this file is missing.
- Immediately after installing all apps required, run Google Play Store first but when asked to enter Google mail ID for either new or existing users, ignore and close the app.
- Next is to run the BlackBerry Google ID then enter the Google mail ID of your choice. (Existing or New user ID can be entered)
- Once successful, close the app.
- Lastly, open your Google play store app then enter your Google mail ID (New or Existing), this should log you in without any glitch experienced.
NOTE: For Google Play store to work, you must keep all 4 apps installed on your device otherwise it won’t work!
