thank you all for your reply.

i fixed the problem ,one of the computer magazine showed how to (create 2-step verification) for Gmail account.

since i've done that my gmail account,stopped working as you know before.

now i cancelled the (2-step verification).

when i tried to access my gmail account through my samsung galaxy Ace,it does work,normally,and i never seen the error again.

this morning Sunday 07/08/2011,i tried again to access my gmail account from my mobile to see if i will get any error,

nothing happened,i was able to access my gmail account from my mobile phone.everything is OK now.

the problem was from (2-step verification)

thank you all again
