    I believe you have to do a factory reset. This was the case when I had the same issue on a Droid.

    Hello Constantine and welcome to the forum.

    Jradicle is absolutely right, the cleanest way when giving a phone to someone else is to factory reset it, they then get a 'new' phone.

    However you could try this if there are lots of apps and settings that you don't want the faff of resetting and rebuilding. I have an X10 big so the set up is slightly different but it should be along the same lines.... you could try going into Settings>Manage Applications and then find all the google related apps and clear data and cache on them. It should clear out the account details. You can do the same for the email app too.
