.. Hi

I just have a simpel question. How do I set up my tattoo using another google acount without having to erase everything by reseting it for factorydata?

regards

Can't you just go in on the mail setup and remove the current e-mail, and exchange it with the new one?

Hi. Thanks for respond. I do know how to add and erase another mail acount to the email.. But how do you do that with the G-mail?

Settings->Applications->Manage applications->Gmail->Clear data, maybe this helps, I haven't done it by myself... But same way I did to erase my calendar and contacts data.

..trying...It dosen't seems to work either.... A lot of the applications are using or having access to the Google acount so maybe thats why it's not that easy to change?

I've looked and looked through my phone, but couldn't work it out either, but I found this on www.drhotdog.net

"First go to Settings > Applications > Manage applications, and tap the Google Apps entry. Then tap 'Clear data', and tap 'OK' to confirm. This will delete your existing Google account details. To enter your new account details go to Settings > Data synchronization > Google and you'll be prompted with the set up dialogue. Enter your new account details and you're done.

What this won't do for you is move all your mail, contacts and calendar data from the old account to the new one, so in order for all your data to appear on your phone as it did before you'll first need to transfer it between the two accounts. I'll describe how I did that in my next post."

So rather than GMail, the app that controls it is Google Apps. Haven't tried it. But maybe worth a try.

Personally though. I would just synch all the contacts, back up my apps to the SDcard and do a factory reset. Then all the links to that old Google Account and data will be resolved. Most apps save their data to the SD card so you shouldn't lose that either.

Thanks for support. I think in my case I will do as brandmarked suggests with a backup to the SDcard.
