Gmail password help

Hi Everyone,

I have a problem with Gmail. I changed my password approx. 3 months ago and I cannot remember what it was.
Please don't suggest that I should restore my password using gmail's password recover site because I cannot remember what I wrote for the silly questions. Not to mention that I didn't save a recover e-mail in gmail settings.

Now I can use only my iPhone4's mail client to use my Gmail account because it saved the new password.

Is there a way to recover the saved password from my Iphone or should I dump the whole e-mail address and register a new one?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry but this won't help because my google account is created in "mail, contacts, calendar" menu. So after i try to sign in using this google app it is asking me for login and password which I don't know.

That's a bummer. Then there isn't a way to change your password. Your password is encrypted on your iPhone. And you can't decrypt it. Its sorta the same with a filevault on a Mac.

I'm sorry, the only way is to drop your account and make a new one.
