    What's the best/easiest way to set up an old Droid X (android 2.3.4) for a kid to play games on? This old android version does not appear to support multiple accounts or anything like that. The only other thing I can think of is to make a new google account. I'm not super concerned about content, I just don't want him to get into my stuff (email, docs, etc.).

    Create his own Google account and make sure yours is no longer tied to that phone

    agree with all above, he must have his own account, he will need it later on in life anyway.

    Thanks all. I did the factory reset and just made the new account from the phone. The hardest part is that almost every viable username in the universe is already used!
