General :: Change To New Gmail Account In Existing Phone
Dec 18, 2013
I just created a gmail account/profile and i wanted to use this new account in my existing Samsung S4 which i have login with another gmail account.I manage to remove the old account ID and login with the new ID, all sync was done. BUT i found that some of my existing contact is without name but having the phone number and i am not sure if there is any missing contacts?
Then I retry to login with the old ID and the contacts details came back to normal with one or two without the names.
Droid X - Configured with a Google Apps Premiere, working great. Attempting to add a personal GMail account. Go to the GMail app, select add account, fill in the metrics and then...... "Needs to communicate" message for ~ 3 minutes, then bombs out with - "Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server". 3G is fine, on a wifi connection that is fine, web browser works fine..... Google Apps account works fine.
When I set up all of my contacts, I set them to "phone". I have gotten a gmail account now and would like to change all of them from "phone" to my gmail account so I can sync them. Anyone have any idea on how to do this?
My phone was just stolen and so I am temporarily using an older Gingerbread device I had laying around. The problem is that my wife used it for a period of time and so its "locked" to her Google account. I realize that with root its fairly easy to disassociate the device from the primary Google account, but I have been unable to find out how to do it WITHOUT root. I really don't want to fully wipe the device if possible! The phone in question is running 2.3.4.
Yesterday I bought my LG Eve (by Rogers), and I made the mistake of subscribing the account that I don't use very much to the Gmail app that comes with the phone (and therefore, to all google apps in the phone). Does anyone know how can I change it?
I'm looking to change my primary account for my android phone but am not looking to loose all my information while doing it. The gmail account i set up my first android phone with was really just a bin for all my other crazy emails to go to. I finally got to creating a real gmail account for myself and want to tie my phone to this account instead.
The question is ,My gmail account is logged in along with my facebook account on the phone ,I have not installed any antivirus(as i keep puttin new roms into them) ,I Got a call from my friend who said that the I am anline on the gmail,But i was not infront of any comp or so,it hit me that my phone had the account ,even my fb account was online.So i called my number and i realised that ,the person who stole it had taken the sim off. While i was reading about Android Lost app ,I came aross "Google Latitude", that said somethin about track a phones gmail account ..
This is driving me insane. When I setup my Hero I had to setup a gmail account, even though I have a Google Account. I setup a gmail account to get the phone setup. I now want to make my gmail account something that makes a little more sense to me. I am not using my gmail account but apparently it shows on Google Latitude to my friends, etc. My question is how does one unlink a gmail account and add a new one? When I go to my Google Accounts to delete gmail it says it will take about 2 days. I wait 2 days and nothing happens. If I attempt to add Gmail back to my Google Account is hows my old address and will not allow me to create a new one. Is it not possible to change the linked gmail address to your google account??
I have 3 mail accounts on my galaxy S. I want to change the default account and remove the existing one but can't. I get the message: this account is required by some application. I'd have to do a reset. That's a pretty dramatic step. Loose all personal data. Is there NO other way Google?
I have a razr maxx hd. How do I set my default email address to an existing gmail account. When I try to sign into that existing email account via the gmail app on the razr, all I get is a response, "The username or password you entered is incorrect".
Please note: I put another gmail address when I first got the phone.
Do I have to clear out the origional google account and or the gmail address to put the new gmail address in?
I had to have a factory reset a couple of weeks ago and did not realize at the time that it made a difference which Gmail account was entered first. I really need to set a different account as the 'primary', but the only option for doing this seems to be another factory reset which will be a real PITA since I just got everything reloaded and the phone is running pretty well. I saw some instructions on another part of this forum which said that you could delete the data from Google Apps, but that is not an option and the other options (e.g., clear cache) are dimmed.
When I tried to remove (settings->accounts & sync) the gmail account that was used during the initial phone setup, it prompted this message -> Remove account. This account is required by some applications. You can only delete it by resetting the phone to factory defaults. I would like to change it to another gmail account. Is such a drastic move (reset to factory default) necessary? Any workaround?
ok when i first got the phone it forced me to make a new gmail account.. so i did.. but ive already got myself a gmail account.. and dont need this one.. is there a way to change it? as ive tried the settings and didnt find any
I know this could be done on earlier phones, but I can't find a way to change my main gmail account on the Droid (Android 2.01) without doing a factory reset. Anyone know how to do this?If a factory reset is the only way, what's the best way to do a backup/restore?
We have taken over maintenance of an existing app from another developer. This is a dedicated business app.
They (the developer) provided us with an updated .apk, and we set up our own google play account. We've tried to upload the .apk to the account, but the package name already exists in the previous google play account.
What are our options? Does the app need to be re-compiled with a different package name? Will the resultant app install as a new app as opposed to an update of the previous app?
When I first set up my X10 it asked me to register a Google account which I did. Is there anyway to change this account to another account? I have tried from one of the menus but it says the account is already setup.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I bought an Eris for my son, but he didn't have a GMail account setup so we setup mine, now he has one and we want to switch but I can not figure out how this is done, if you can help I would appreciate it.
I changed my unlock pattern and forgot the combination. I forgot the password to my gmail account so I had it reset. My password is correct when entering on my computer but comes up as incorrect when entering it on my HTC Desire.
Edit: I've managed to fix this without resetting the phone, but you need root: Issue 3477 - android - HTC Hero - can't sign Gmail account if user skips signing when initially using the phone. - Project Hosting on Google Code comment 16

Here is my issue. When I read or delete an email from my phone, it doesn't reflect in gmail when I login. It still shows as unread. Whenever I get new emails on the phone, it will say I have 5, but I only have 1 because I already read the other 4. But I cannot see them and can only view them then from gmail online. Never had this issue live past a *228 and reboot. I have cleared cache, tried reflash. Everything. Even went back to a working NAND and still same issue. I am using Aloysius v11 MAPS.
I was looking for this info all over and still haven't found an answer. Is there a way to get the Google account or the Gmail address (no password) which have been signed to the device. the closest thing I saw is using AccountManager and Account but this is only for Android class 5 or higher and I'm developing for class 3. from my understanding this is for online services which I do not need - I'm only want the Gmail address.
I'm running on a Droid (original), and I'm not planning on using one of my old email addresses that has a lot of my contacts on my phone associated with it; is there a quick and easy way to change the email these are associated with? I'm using two different email addresses on my Droid right now and I'd say about 70% of them are on this (soon to be defunct) email. Ideas? Can I export ALL my contacts from my phone and reimport them under another email address?
Using Gmail on the phone and in Chrome on the PC. Deleting an email on the phone doesn't seem to delete the one in Gmail in Chrome (vice versa applies). Anyone know how to get them both synced so when you delete one version of the email it gets removed from both?
I am having trouble loading a 2nd (additional) Gmail account onto new Eris.Loaded 1st Gmail account at set-up just fine, but when attempting to do the 2nd one, all I get is "Warning - Authentication failed. Please verify your username/password." and am absolutely/positively certain they are keyed properly.Does anyone have a fix for this?
