    Default Do I need a gmail account on a droid x?

    Phone is scheduled to be delivered today and I cannot wait! Must I have a google/gmail account to activate and use the phone? I will sync email from a work exchange server as the email on the phone.

    Yup you do, I have several Gmail’s but when I got my DX I setup a new one just for the DX... Like the other poster said you don’t actually have to use it for anything but you will need one. It is nice to have for backup of contacts and then for the appmarket as well, plus checkout and the other Google features you can sign up for…
