    Hi,

    I am trying to remove my gmail account from my phone, but it's not possible. I have done multiple factory resets, but it did not work. Is there a way to remove it?

    So you are saying that if you go to menu>settings>privacy>factory data reset the phone reboots and the phone is still registered to the original gmail account? It doesn't prompt you for a gmail account at first boot after the reset?

    What kind of phone is it?

    *moved to Samsung Galaxy Spica forum*

    It's better to have owners of the same model see this. It might be specific to your model.

    I also noticed that I'm not able to download apps as it will always say "download unsuccessful".
