Default deleting a gMail account

Hi chaps, just posted this thread
How to delete a secondary GMAIL account

on the ATRIX2 forum... but my phone is a "regular" ATRIX.

In short, added a gMail account and now I cannot delete it.. If you think you can lend me a hand, please see the thread with the full description of ALL the things I did (reset included).

THanks

Found a workaround. Since for some reason in my phone the "account settings" for the second GMail is not accesible, the only way to land there was forcing a sync error. This will give you the chance to "change settings" or "retry"... here are the steps:

1) Go to the GMail account on a PC
2) Go to the settings on the PC and disable POP and IMAP functionality. This guarantees that the phone will yield a "cannot communicate" error and give you the option to access the account settings not otherwise accesible
3) Force the account sync on the phone. Wait for the error, go to account settings (instead of Retry), click on delete account.

Best!
