    Ok. My son's HTC TP2 bit the dust. Found out the insurance on it to replace with refurb is $90 deduct. Already got 2 droid 2s for $200, so figured I can give him one of those or my droid 1.

    I have lots of programs on both of them that he would probably want. If I just re activate on his number, I know the phone will work. He can delete my gmail account and put his on there.

    Do all the programs on the phone then re register to his market account, in other words, if he got a new droid and activated would it download them.

    Or should I do a wipe, have him re register, then download all those programs again.

    He can't just delete your GMail account from the phone. The primary GMail account that you register with the phone is tied into many different things such as WiFi access point settings, Market apps, Calender, etc, and the only way to get it off would be to do a wipe and have him sign in with his GMail account and download whatever apps he needs from the Market.

    Appreciate it. BTW, what is the best way to move the SD card. The card has apps intalled on it, etc. Use the phone to format it? Or can I just leave it and let him use phone as is?
