    When I got my Tbolt at the verizon corp store the rep was in a hurry and mis spelled my name for the primary gmail acct that is required.
    I called Verizon and they were no help, said it could not be fixed.:(
    Anyone have suggestions to fix this scenario?

    If you do a factory reset on it in the menu it'll let you type in your google account again.

    from your home screen go to settings -> accounts ->add account ->google

    after you add the new one you should be able to delete the mistake account. if not here are instructions to factory reset your phone

    I think factory reset is your only option. Android won't let you associate a different Gmail account on the fly last time I tried.

    They mispelled your name or the actual email address? If it's just your name then log in to google on the computer and update your name. That's all. If it's the actual email that's wrong, then yeah, you'll have to create a new one and probably do a factory wipe.
