    A friend of mine bought a secondhand optimus, there is someone else's gmail account still entered into the phone and we can't figure out how to change it so it will run off his gmail account instead. Will I have to hard reset it or is there another way, thanks.

    Factory reset will let you reset the Gmail account.

    I've changed my email 3 times successfully. You need to hold down the UP volume button (on side) AND the HOME button on the front AND the MIDDLE SIDE button (under the charger slot) while you power your phone on.

    1. So power down phone,
    2. Power up and hold he above buttons (refer to user manual if in doubt)
    3. If nothing happens, release buttons and then press them again.
    4. You will be prompted to reset the phones (say YES)
    5. Be patient , and then voila...start the phone and then set it up from scratch

    This seems a bit drastic. I am a 2 day old newbie who does not want to change his gmail account but wouldn't:

    Settings->Applications->Manage applications->Google Mail->Clear data

    work?
