Hello Chuma

That is strange. I have 5 Gmail accounts. When you go to register a new account are you using the same user name? They may be telling you that that user name already exists. Type in a different user name for the new account.

There is no other reason I can think of really. Try that and let me know how you get on

Hello rosh

You have to be filling in the Birthday part on the application wrong. It should be like this MM/DD/YYYY (e.g. 11/16/2011. That is the month first, day second and year last. Sometimes the year will stay at 2011 so make sure it is changed to your year of birth.

Good luck and let me know how you get on
