    I think the Gmail account I use on my phone is f'd, voice search (server problem) and youtube (sorry, this video can't be played) don't work. From the research I've done, this seems to be a problem with random accounts on the google server side. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a way to contact google about it and it's unknown if or when it will be fixed. I have other gmail accounts and want to use one of them, but will the few paid apps I have be lost?

    Try a hard reset.

    Didn't work, I even reflashed. The problem is server side. I just wanted to know if changing the master google account on the phone will affect the paid apps in the marketplace?

    More than likely.

    The Youtube problem is common if you're running 2.1 (which i'm guessing you are since you mentioned voice search) and haven't done the following: [Solved] - Android 2.1 - Streaming Apps

    It may fix the youtube problem, but the voice search issue is still server side. The fact of the matter is that I don't really use either feature too often, it just irks me when something doesn't work as advertised.

    I agree with Iowa here, until Sprint pushes this live no one responsible for making it work.

    And I thought I was being responsible for making it work? Thus my original question and why I thought to change google accounts to see if that resolves the issue. On second thought, I'll blame IOWA instead.:eek:

    That worked for youtube, I'm at 50% solved. Now I can ignore the youtube app again. Thanks (again)

    It is tied to the gmail account. Though some app developers have issues when you flash your phone and it doesn't store your stats for that app. World War being one.
