Galaxy mini (GT-S5570) v2.3.6 - google market login with non google email address
So my S3 has gone for repair (faulty charge port / 2 year warranty) and EE have given me a Galaxy mini on loan till its returned. it had android 2.3.4 on it when i received it, which has been upgraded to 2.3.6.
i cant login to my primary google account for market / play store, seemingly because my username isnt @googlemail.com, its @ntlworld.com. i always used this account with my S3.
i created a @googlemail.com account and logged in with that, so the phone isnt faulty persee, it looks to be a feature. Google wont let me add my googlemail.com email to my primary @ntlworld.com account.
anyone else come across this? any suggestions? or am i going ingress cold turkey for 2 weeks to a month?
cheers in advance
