    Newbie here!
    I forgot my gmail account password when purchasing my Eris and the sales person set one up for me and also said i can later switch my account once i rememebred the old one. Well...she spelled my name wrong and it seems like i cannot delete the default account or switch to my previous existing account.

    I wanted to uninstall gmail and reinstall but this app is not available. is this a possible solution?

    Any suggestions of what i can do to restart my default gmail account setup associated with my verizon/droid phone?

    Thanks guys!

    Hi Caddyman. It seems that even after clearing the data and i go back to the gmail app it reloads the previous account.

    Thanks for the help. Any other suggestions?

    then you have to look at other google related apps and do the same thing, i had to do this when i first got the phone, just like you, and i went in and pretty much cleared anything that said google on it, it worked.
