    I just bought a TMO G1 unlocked for my Cincinnati Bell (AT&T) SIM card. However, the previous owner did not reset the phone, and left their google account on there. Can I get their google account off of the phone without undoing the unlock settings? if so, then how?

    yes once you unlock the phone, you wont need to unlock again after a reset.

    1) Menu>Settings>SD card & phone storage
    2) scroll all the way to the bottom
    3)Select Factory data reset
    4)Select Reset phone
    5)wait for reboot
    6)VOILA! all back to stock phone. just launch market and sign in.

    hope this helps and welcome to android forums!

    Thx, I finally just tried a soft reset, and hoped it didnt undo my unlock, and it didnt, so it all worked out in the end :D.
