How do I connect my Android tablet to my GMail account?

Claire November 26, 2011

I tried plugging my Android into my computer and installing the apps from the Android Market website, but a message always pops up that says “This account doesn’t have Android connected to it. Try logging in with a different account”. What do I do?

      How to Install Applications on the Android Tablet PC

      well if you have the applications on the desktop, then load them to the tablet via usb connection.

      1) download Astro File Manager (2 MB) to your android mobile
      2) Download .apk files to pc
      3) Connect tablet to computer. Copy all .apk files into the memory card of ur
      phone.4) Browse these .apk files through Astro File Manager 

      if you only have the .apk on your computer, upload it to dropbox, open dropbox
      app on android, click file, install

      this is a different question than the original one above. Please post a new question. Thank you!

      Hello, is there an android market icon in your tablet?  If there is, click on it and it will ask you for your gmail account.  Try and see if it lets you.  If not, you would have to download the .apk files for apps to your computer.  Then connect tablet to your computer with USB cable and transfer apps to memory card.  Install apps from there.

    1) Login to your account and go to My Account-->Dashboard.(using your tablet)
    2) It will take you to your profile.Then click on  "Manage Mobile Device" .
    3) Input your phone number and then tap on "not what your are looking for?".
    4) Input checkout, and then a check out will show up
    where you can input your credit card, so you can pay for your apps if
    you so choose to.

    If this doesn't works then try this -

    1) Log-in to the Google Market Website -
    2) Tap on My Account.Go to Password Recovery link.
    3) Now to validate whether it’s you, enter your Google account password.
    4) In the SMS Section -
       a) Tap on Edit.
       b) If you already see the your phone number is written there, then
    delete that phone number, but if no number or some other number is
    present, then you can go to step (f) directly.
      c) Save it and sign out.
      d) Sign-in again to the android market website, and go back to same page, if prompted.
      e) Enter your phone number there and save it.
      f) Sign Out.

      I have an android tablet 2.2. When you say enter your phone number, is there a special ID you can get from the tablet?

        What you can get a number is only IMEI number which is printed on the manual or in the packaging of your tablet.

    -Log out from google account first
    -go to internet address and type from your android tablet
    -click sign in on top right corner and give your login ID and password
    -You should have Google account to do this, if you do not have an account - create one first
    -after login to account - wait for 5 min and log off from tablet
    -now go to and login from your computer
    -click install on which ever application you want to download
