HTC Desire :: Changing Email Address Associated With Phone
Sep 6, 2010
I want to change the email address the phone is set up to. But I have a niggling suspicion doing so requires a factory reset. First things first, please tell me if that's wrong and I'll be happy. If however I'm right, What's the best way to go about saving everything? If I download a backup program, will it store all my settings, apps etc or just data on the SD card? And will changing the email address bugger something up and stop me from restoring the backup? I wouldn't put it past google.
I'm a winmo convert and just setting up my new Desire. All pretty good so far. I'd like to be able to change the from / reply to address on an account in the the Mail application (as opposed to the Gmail one) but can't find an option to. I have mail from my primary account forwarding to my gmail account which syncs with the Desire and I want to be able to reply using my primary address rather than the gmail one.
Some of my friends at the contact list are also my friends at work. And I added their work emails to their contact profile. Now for those contacts they have 2 email addresses. Work and private. The problem is. How can I change that work email address to be primary address? Now if i link contacts with Facebook the primary email address is always their private mail, but for those working friends I want to change that primary address to be works email address.
So my wife joined me and got herself a hero. She used her old gmail address when she first logged onto her new Hero. Now she wants to change the master email address to her new gmail account. So far I got the "mail" app to transfer into the new account. However when we go to google talk it still shows her as signed in on her old account. Is there an easy fast way to change the master email address without having to do a factory reset? She doesn't care if she loses any apps if people are wondering.
I've looked through the other SMTP threads on here also, but didn't see anything that seemed to fit. I have a Desire and I use it over a WiFi link in my home, fine for surfing and reading mail, but when I try to set up an outgoing mail account on my 'usual' mail account I run into a problem. Because I travel a lot I use a service called authsmtp to provide me with an smtp address wherever I am, works fine, annual fee is low (not a recommendation, works for me).
However, in order to work it needs an SMTP address of the form mail.authsmtp.com and a password. I can enter the mail.authsmtp.com ok but it always says it cannot check the account. Is this 'cos it cannot check the smtp or is it something else? All the other data seems to be ok.
under Setting > About Phone > Phone Identity...Current username isn't what i have specified (although i donno how it has an address). how do you change that?Phone number was different so i called Sprint Store and got info to change, but didn't get help on the username.
I was having trouble seeing all my saved mail on my AOL email setup through the Mail App. I tried deleting my AOL Email address so I could reinstall it. I started the process to delete it but it lock up during the process. The phone wouldn't respond to anything so I had to turn it off. When I turned it back on the Mail App shows I have emails but when I tap on it, it comes up to a screen that says choose a mail provider. Choices are Exchange Activesync or Other (POP3/IMAP). I choose Other (POP/IMAP), entered email address & password. It came up to a warning screen (an account with the email address already exists. It doesn't allow me to complete the setup. It seems it deleted part of the email address setup but it still remembers the old setup. Is there anyway to totally delete this email address to start all over without resetting the phone?
I have set up my sky.com email address as the default email within the function of the phone. All working fine other than I don't seem to be able to import my address book into the phone email function.
I'm a newbie to this forum, and hope someone can help. Have had the Captivate for almost a month now and am plagued by an annoying problem. I have set up email accounts connecting to a google-hosted email account via IMAP. I am finding that when replying to a received email, my reply goes out with redundant repetitions of the email address on the "to" line. Example: Email from firstname.lastname@example.org arrives. I click "reply" on the phone and the reply goes out to email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org etc etc *10 times*, instead of just once. It also copies me about 10 times! Is anybody else seeing this? I use this for work emails, so it looks very unprofessional like I am trying to spam my clients! I have another couple of days before my 30-day return period is up, so hopefully someone else know how to fix this. Is there some setting I am overlooking?
I linked a contact from my gmail to a contact that was transferred in from my old phone (lg rumor 2). Now the contacts name doesn't show up. Instead, the full gmail address (aka [a bunch of gibberish] @gmail.com). How do I change the name on the address book to use the old phone contact instead of the gmail contact name? I tried adding a nickname to the gmail contact under "edit contact" but all if did was change how the person's name shows up on gmail chat on my computer.
I just received a new Nexus 7 32GB and am having some issues. I'm trying to setup my email using my base email address thru Comcast. I have no trouble revieving email through the email setup not Gmail but there is no provision for an address book or contacts list for sending emails. I Googled around and found K-9 Email and went to Google Apps to download it and upon tapping the download button a message came up stating "no devices found". The Nexus7 is running Jellybeen 4.2.1.
Just getting used to my HTC Desire, after reading your forum I was comforted regarding battery life and it seems much better now than the first few days. I see another post on this but no answer, the address book only gives one line of the address is then any way round this? Even my first pda a Psion 3 had the option of which fields to display etc. there seems very little option to format what is seen, not that I am unhappy about the rest but to have to edit to see all the address is barmy. Another thing way back then that still is not found is search all fields of the contacts, i.e. to find a number of someone that rang on another phone.
I got myself a Chinese clone of a galaxy S3 (alps 7102), it has Android's Jelly Bean 4.1.1 operating system on it.
It keeps on changing its wi-fi mac address on reboot which I guess I could put up with, I have seen other posts with similar problems on varying phones and have tried to fix it, as per the methods described for them, but I cant seem to get a fix that works, for my phone I am not very familiar with the android operating system but have some experience with linux.
The phone doesn't seem to have a bootloader as I have tried to boot the phones bootloader with the adb command "adb reboot- bootloader" from my pc but it just boots as usual, I have done a factory reset to the phone as per the instructions from the ebayer that I bought the phone from but that didn't fix it (as you might have guessed) but it did reset the phones serial number to 0123456789ABCDEF which I have no idea why that happened but has added to the issues that I would like to be fixed.
- I've a wifi network at home based on mac filtering.
- 3 days ago,I bought a Galaxy note 2 model: GT-N7102.
- I normally searched for it's wifi mac address and insert it in the router and get connected the internet.
- Next day I couldn't get connected to the internet!... When I checked the device mac address and I found it changed !!!!!! (it was 00:08:22:e8:f5:99 and changed to 00:08:22:5c:44:f5 !!!) later, after I went out and get back to home and tried to connect to internet, again I couldn't and the reason was that I found the mac address changed again!!! the new one was 00:08:22:1c:88:fc !!!
- It is continuing... every time I get new mac address and I must insert it to router to be able to connect to the internet.
I recently did a factory reset so I could change the gmail address my phone associates with. I did a factory reset because the option to clear data option under Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - Google Apps - Clear Data was not there (I have Sense UI 2.1, don't know if that was the culprit). My question is, is there a way to reinstall my paid apps, without buying them again, since my phone now associates my new gmail address with the market and Google Checkout? Or is there a way for the market to use my old gmail address so i can reinstall these paid apps without paying for them again, and then use the new address? I backed up all my apps with Astro, but for some reason bTunes didn't get back up.
I know how to sync contacts and so on, but is there any way you can call up your Android Desire address details while connected to a computer and modify them there? It would be a lot easier than using the touch screen keyboard.
And how do I get rid of it? When I want to send a message, I get a mountain of address book options because my email addresses from my Gmail account appear to have automatically imported themselves in to my contact list (I don't recall authorizing this). Anyway, I want to get rid of them so I just see my phone contacts (phone numbers only).
have noticed my contacts are set to google but for my own reasons, i'd rather not have my numbers stored on some server somewhere.how'd I change existing contacts into the d fashioned phone only contacts?
I obviously have my main gmail account running. But my school also uses gmail for our school email's but our address is email@example.com. How do I go about adding that as my second email account on the phone? I think I was on the right track, but I don't know what type of server it is, which I think is the main thing I'm asking here. Move this to another sub-forum if you must.
I have an HTC Evo, When I set up my email account through the email app I put in the wrong email address. Now when I try to type in the right one it auto suggests the wrong one. Can anyone tell me how to clear it?
I'm trying to use "note to self" and it records fine and I hit send, It then pops up email clients. if i choose, yahoo it doesn't autofill anything, if i choose the built in mail app it auto fills the subject and the message but it does not have my email address as a default, so I have to type it in every time. Since it is note to self, shouldn't it keep my email address in there. I haven't found a way to make it default. Any suggestions?
