    Try going into settings > applications > manage and clear the cache from the google app.

    Its the only way..Be sure the first email address entered on the phone is the one you want to use for the Market & Google Chat

    I have an ATRIX 2 that was deleting apps any time I rebooted the phone. Finally had to talk to Motorola and the guy said I had to wipe the phone and create a new Google account because he said it might be the Google account that's causing the problem.

    It looks like he is right, but I have a bunch of paid apps on my old Gmail email address that I'd like to get moved to my phone with my new Gmail email address. I certainly don't want to have to repurchase everything again.

    There has to be a way to change the email address used in the market to allow this.
    Anyone???
    Thanks,
