    Hi. 1st post here and completely new to androids so forgive ignorance. Just bought an android tablet for my partner from ebay. Trying to access marketplace but it keeps showing an email account we have no knowledge of and asking for password, obviously we dont know password. we have opened up an account in our name and it now shows 2 accounts. I would have thought it would have asked us which account we wanted to enter market with..but no. Any ideas on what to do?i.e. how to access market with our googlemail account?

    Welcome to the forum. To access the Android market you'd would have to signup using your gmail/google account and password. Open the market and when you're prompt to enter your Google username and password - enter the credentials of the gmail/google username and password that is associated with your device.

    Happy Holidays ;)
