Help, Google just disabled my email accounts

Apparently I violated some T&C and they just shut down without notice/explanation, any way to get it back open?
What's your plan for yud shvat?

Which T&C?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

So did you fill the form?

Account suspension is usually due to:
Spamming
Mass emailing
Violating TOS on another google service such as uploading a YT video which is against TOS

Unless there is a rule against having multiple accidents, as multiple accidents of mine got shut down (not my main one though)

Here is an interesting example of why they would suspend an account
Quote
My data was intact save for the last thing I’d worked on–a spreadsheet containing a client’s account numbers and passwords. It seems that Google’s engineers determined this single document violated policy and locked down my entire account. My request to get that document back is still pending.

I am in the same boat, thankfully I didn't use my primary gmail account to order the phones but all my secondary accounts were suspended. A friend of mine had his primary account suspended. It really sucks. I'm hoping Google will reinstate the accounts..
No doubt from ordering many Google pixel phones..

Same by me it's my secondary account. I'm currently on hold with Google to try and reinstate it
