Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Way To Have Multiple Gmail Accounts On Phone?
Jun 25, 2010
Is it possible to have 2 gmail accounts? for ex: i have a gmail personal account, and also a work account which i want to use my calendar as it tracks our days work. is this possible i cant see where is can set up a second one?
Is it possible to have multiple gmail accounts synced to the phone? Also, say I sync multiple accounts to the phone, are they all equal or is the 1st account created when the phone is initially set up the main account? can I change this?
My wife recently got a Droid Eris, set up her Gmail account and decided she didn't like the email address you had chosen. I created a second Gmail account for her, but when I try to send her and email to it, she does not get notification on her phone. Only if you send and email to her "original" Gmail address. Is it possible to set it up to receive notifications from both addresses on her phone? Delete one address and just use the new one? Etc, etc.
I'm thinking about getting one of these in a few days when they become available from Sprint, but I have a question. I have an iPhone right now and I have three Gmail accounts for different purposes. I don't use Google Calendar, so I'm not worried about calendar events. But does Android/Hero have any problems using multiple Gmail accounts?
I apologize for my ignorance/stupidity in advance. I can't figure out how to put multiple calendars on the native x10 calendar. I've synced my gmail calendar with it, which I want as my personal one. I. Then want another calendar for business etc.
When I click more -> Calendars -> Add calendar its grayed out?
I asked this in the other "Hero" subforum, but I thought I'd ask it here, too. I really like what I see from this phone, but I wonder how it handles multiple Gmail accounts. I have three Gmail accounts for different purposes. My iPhone 3G handles these with no problem. I don't see anything in the Hero manual that indicates that it will play well with multiple Gmail accounts.
I put all my contacts on my phone from my sim card, great no problems, then opened a gmail acount which was usefull for editing and adding email addresses to the contacts. But I now have a problem where, if I add a new contact to my phone, say a name and mobile number, it will soon disapear when the phone synchronises with gmail. The only way I have found to add new contacts on the phone is to put them in gmail first on my lap top. I know It is possible the stop synchronisning but surely gmail shouldnt take contacts off my phone?
while in the process of setting up my phone, i created a gmail account, which i need so i can use market, etc. Just wondering if anyone knows how i can go about removing that gmail account. I spell my name wrong, so want to remove that email account and register a new one, but i can't find anywhere where i can delete it, it just keeps coming up to put my email in. I have deleted the incorrect gmail account on their website.
Because of several issues with SE sync, I am trying to use Google sync instead. However, this is also not working as expected: I wished to have all my phone contacts transferred from the phone to Gmail contact list. I started with an empty Gmail contact list. I enabled Google sync as described on the SE website. I don't know exactly what it does, but I also enabled Settings -> Data synchro -> Gmail (perhaps related to my e-mails?)
Result: Calendar syncs without problem. Contacts do not transfer from phone to Gmail Second trial: I created a new contact "A" on GmailI created a new contact "B" on the phoneI ran sync Result: Contact "A" synced successfully from Gmail to phone. No sync of contact "B" from phone to Gmail. Third trial: I modified contact "A" on the phoneI ran sync Result: The modification done on the phone did not sync to Gmail Hints from the phone: When I try using Google sync for calendar, the sync icon shows for some seconds, before the date of last sync is updated. All ok. When I try using Google sync for contacts, the sync icon shows for 5-15 minutes. It then disappears, but no date of last sync is added. When I check the contact list, contacts have been synced from Gmail, but not to Gmail.
When I select Settings -> Data synchro -> Gmail, the sync icon blinks for some seconds with a yellow warning triangle. I don't know if this is related to my Gmail e-mails. The e-mails in the Gmail app are loaded without problem.I have already tried going to "manage application" and clear data for "Gmail" and "Gmail storage". I should probably mention that I synced my phone contacts with Gmail some months ago, without problems. This means that my Gmail contact list was not empty when I started messing with this. However, on my first sync attempt, contact lists on the phone and on Gmail were not synced. Instead, all Gmail contacts were added to the phone, causing 95% duplicate entries. I exported my Gmail contacts, deleted the entire Gmail contact list, and synced again to remove duplicate entries from the phone. Then started the process above. I would rather avoid deleting all the contacts from the phone to reload them from Gmail or SE sync, because addresses, facebook/twitter connections, etc. do not sync well.
So it goes the the screen where it says type in your email and password to unlock. I don't even remember my username or password. Some people say type "null" but it doesn't work. I'm willing to restart everything can anyone help me to reset this phone?
i've been on my Xperia X10 for a few weeks now, I feel like i manage the phone and Android pretty well, but there is still one thing that I can't figure out. All the SE online help, the phone manual, phone electronic manual, even my phone carrier, all say that i can link my phone to facebook in my Online Service Accounts....Strange thing is that I do not have facebook listed there.
I have : Google Sony Ericsson Sync Twitter Picasa
Ironicly i'm interested only in facebook. I've been searching this "bug", if that's what it is, for a while now, and I have not found anywhere mensioning anything of facebook not beeing listed there. Maybe I've done a poor search, but now I'm curious to see if anybody on this SE forum might know why facebook might not be listed in the Online Service Accounts.
Googled this issue and can't seem to find the resolution. I am using the Gmail app which came pre-installed on the phone. I have entered my account details, I can send emails but I don't get a notification when I receive an email to my Gmail Inbox. I have checked the settings and I have setup a ringtone and selected the option to flag up an icon in the notification bar. However the only way I know I have an email is if I open the app. I have a task manager and Gmail is on the ignore list.
How do I send multiple SMS to my contacts on Xperia X10? First of all it doesn't give a dropdown list of my contacts So I manually input by selecting the first letter of my contacts names. Only limits it to several, i'd say about 10/12 people. Then when I send the message, in the notification I get a message saying sms failed. Only 2 people seem to recieve the actual SMS. This is really frustrating.
xperia x10, how can I easily view all contacts to send the same sms to with out typing in the first 2 letters of there name, just want a drop down list because sometimes I can't remeber everybodys name that I want to send the message to because sometimes its 30 people and that would be a slow way of doing typing the first 2 letters, is this at all possible, last phone had drop down box and you just scrolled through and ticked which ones
Every time i tried setting up a secondary account, i get the " cannot establish a reliable network" and tells me to try again later. i am sure i have a data connection as i am able to go on the browser and everything.
google nexus 5. I am wondering how to set up multiple accounts on the gmail app. I have been trying and cannot find an option to do so like in the stock email app. On the playstore it says that thw gmail app can manage multiple accounts but I just cant find the option
I have two folders in in my mediascape, one containing bluetooth pictures and one containing downloaded pictures. At present to delete these pictures I have to go through each picture individually. How can I delete the entire contents of each folder? I do not seem to have a tag feature where I can tag all of the photogrpahs that I want to delete in one go. Any ideas?
I own a Sony Xperia X10 and i have about 80 photos on the phone which i have taken but when i go to delete them i can only delete them one at a time unlike my other Sony handsets i have owned where i could mark as many as i wanted and then delete all the marked ones.
Having just purchased my X10 yesterday and starting a new contract with a new number i would like to send my new number to all my phonebook contacts. I cant seem to work out how to add multiple contacts or indeed to "select all" as i have done on previous phones. Any help would be most welcome.
I have several Gmail accounts and I would like to have a desktop button for each one. Is there a way to do this? Currently there is one button for Gmail and once I open it I can select the account I want to see.
I have two Gmail accounts setup on my phone, both of which use Google Apps, so the addresses are (at) example1.com and (at) example2.com as opposed to ending in gmail.com. I use my first account to sync my contacts, calendar and mail, and my secondary account just syncs mail. I then added an old @gmail.com account for no particular reason and now it won't let me delete it and gives this reason: "This account is required by some applications. You can only remove it by resetting the phone to factory defaults".
When I first added the account, by default it didn't turn on mail sync. I have left that unchecked, and also left contacts and calendar sync unchecked. Therefore, this account hasn't yet interacted with any apps/programs. Is the reason I can't delete this @gmail.com account because Android recognizes it as a 'proper' Gmail address? I have searched for similar threads, but ultimately the discussions there seem to focus on different problems.
I'd like to have two GMail (Google Apps mail, if that makes a difference) accounts active at once, both getting new mail notifications, and having the ability to send and reply through both accounts. My current solution is to simply forward all of Account #2's mail to Account #1 -- but then I can't send. Am I missing an option here? Surely this must be possible on Google's OS.
I've seen the video for the Nexus One handling multiple Gmail accounts, that's fantastic, but what it does not show me, and what is killing me about my Eris, is that there is no "Reply As" drop down menu like there is in the regular Gmail app for Desktop OS. Ex. I have 3 email accounts (Hotmail, Work and Gmail) that I have setup on my Eris. Currently, the only one getting pushed to my phone is Gmail, which means that the other two are constantly polling for messages and causing a drain of battery, not to mention the hassle of having to enter into different mailboxes, apps to retrieve mail. I would love to be able to have my Gmail pop those other accounts and label them accordingly so that I can receive all my mail via Push from Gmail, saving on battery and making email management on my phone much easier.
However, this is not a possibility for me simply because I need to be able to Reply As the account that the msg was originally sent. Ex. Someone sends an email to my work email, and I'm on the road. I need to reply as firstname.lastname@example.org, not email@example.com. That would be really confusing to the sender, not to mention unprofessional for me. I've read some work arounds where some people have Gmail setup the way i described above, but also have their sep mail accounts setup on their phone w/ the Auto Polling set to manual. That way, they can manage their email in Gmail, but if they need to reply to one from a specific account, they open up the Mail for that account, manually refresh and find the msg and reply. Also, the built-in Mail apps have no ability to do batch operations such as "Mark as read" or "Delete all" functionaility, GMail does.
So, I can't be pumping through 30 emails a day w/o this feature. I'm doing it now on my Eris and trust me, it's more work that it's worth. I'm not one of those people that can just leave the Mail Icon sitting there with a number on it. It has to go away. Otherwise, I don't know if/when another email comes in. It could be important. This is especially important to me because I'm an IT Professional, and, not only do I need to get my email in a timely manner (Push is instant and therefore ideal), but I need to be able to reply as such. I've been looking at alternatives, but this seems to be the only/best way, and I'm really hoping that it's built-in to Gmail on Android 2.1, like it is on the Desktop OS version.
I have jusst dumped my iPhone and have joined the fold with my Nexus 5. I do have a couple of Android tablets so I am not totally new to this great OS.
I have 5 gmail accounts (primarily for email) and 2 of them are Google Play accounts, I used a different account for each tablet I had running. In hindsight the 2 google play accounts was stupid because now I have apps I want to use scattered on various devices, mainly on the Nexus 5, spread on both accounts.
Here is what I want to accomplish:
- Consolidate all of my apps to 1 single account and ideally close / delete one of them
- Just use the 1 single account on all of my deveices access all of my apps
- Have Google Play associate only with the 1 main account
- Utilize / access my 5 total gmail accounts for email only, I have no need to have 5 Google Keep, People, Calanders etc. I only use the 1 main account (the one I want all my apps in play to use) for all my contacts and notes and calanders. The remaining 4 accounts are really ony for email.
After the upgrade (all went well), when I select a contactI have the same number several times on the screen. If I choose edit, in the edit menu are same numbers gor google, sony sync and phone contacts. Even if I try to filter them, they are there.
I've had my X10 mini pro for about a month and now I can't stand some of the "features" anymore. First, I thought people where crazy, sending me the same sms two or three times in a row. But now I've realized that they aren't, it's just my phone that receives them over and over again. It is the same thing with notifications. If I set a reminder in the calendar, the reminder pops up in my notification bar sometimes five or six times before I get to angry and delete the whole event from the calendar. Is these problems specific to me or do anyone else recognize them?
I'm a new X10 mini owner and also just registered to be a member of this forum. It's great to have this forum to share ideas and help on our favorite phone. Can anyone tell me how I could send the same text message to more than one recipient as soon as I create it, without having to forward the message several times?
I have given up on trying to find the answer to this ridiculously basic question in the User Guide. (I must not be using the keywords that the user guide understands!) Can you advise me on how to delete multiple text messages at the same time, rather than deleting them individually? My phone is an X10 mini pro.
On my Droid Eris (just updated to Android 2.1), I have taken advantage of 2.1 offering support for multiple Gmail accounts. So I have 3 Gmail Accounts in the Gmail app. My question pertains to how Android syncs the contact lists (which include many of the same contacts) from these 3 separate accounts. Will I end up with dozens of duplicate contacts? If so, is there a workaround? Also, is there an easier way to switch between different Gmail accounts? E.g., in the Gmail app, you have to go to Menu then Accounts, which is inefficient. The built-in mail app displays a list of accounts when you open it (an ideal approach), but I would prefer to not open my Gmail accounts in the default mail app.
When newly setting up my X10 part of the setup process was (of course) email, so I entered my gmail info. I later set up gmail from the gmail icon.Now, when I receive email it shows in one..I open/read/close and it opens immediately in the other. I don't really care which I keep (although the gmail one is slightly nicer looking) but am afraid to delete either for fear of having it not work at all.
