    I use the Gmail app for business, but I'd like to use Google Talk with my personal Gmail account. I can't figure out how to do this? Is it possible? Seems completely lame if not...

    Is this what you are asking, just to clarify?
    You use one google account for your gmail.
    You want to use a different google account for gtalk.

    I believe so, but I can't verify. All you should have to do is go to settings>accounts and sync>add account
    Then add your separate google account. Now I'm not positive, but from looking at it, you should be able to disable anything with the 2nd account from syncing, so you won't see the 2nd account's mail in your gmail. After that, open the gtalk app and see if there is even an option of which account to use to sign in.

    Let me know if that works, I'm sort of interested.


    **Forgot what forum I'm in. Just saw you are on a Hero. My directions are based on 2.0/2.0.1 on the Droid. Is Hero running 1.6?

    Yes. That's what I'm asking. Thanks, but I'm not seeing that option. My Hero is running the latest firmware, which is 1.5

    Thanks. I appreciate that. It's really too bad they make it so damn hard to log in with a different account. I mean, I had the Google Talk and mail apps on my BB, and you could easily log in and out with any account. Strange that it can't do it with Google's own OS...
