    Default Switch primary Gmail accounts?

    Is there a way to change the primary gmail account attached to your phone without doing a factory reset?

    I know that you can add gmail accounts, but the only one I can sync calendars with is the original.

    Please read this post carefully, I am NOT interested in adding an account.
    Secondary account can sync contacts and mail, but they cant sync calendars.

    Really? That's weird...when I go into Settings>Accounts, I see "Sync Calendar" as an option under both of my Google accounts. It was one of the features that came with 2.2 because it wasn't there before the update came down.

    I have 5 google accounts and all can sync calendar. If you've already tried deleting the acct and adding it back on as a secondary and it's still not giving you the option the only thing to do is a factory reset.

    Man, that blows. I have a factory installed 2.2, I never even got to experience 2.1.

    If I go to settings>accounts, I see my back up assistant, google account, google acount. I have to go into the account to to select the specific syncing, and only one of the google accounts offers sync with calendar.

    This really, really blows if I have to do a factory reset. Pure widget and Beautiful Widgets cant be moved to my sd card... I have to buy those two apps all over again

    you wont have to buy them all over again, they will be in your purchases and you can re download them for free.

    Also cant you use a backup app to save all your apps to your SD card?

    Yes. I believe all phones with 2.2 can, that is why it is odd that yours can't. I don't know why that would be.

    I think the only way to get a backup app is to root your phone and use something like Titanium Backup, but your paid apps

    shouldn't need to be purchased again. The market will back them up. Or get an Appbrain account by downloading that app and signing up.

    go into the market and hit the menu button and there should be another button that says downloads, hit that and it will show all of your purchases, if they are installed, purchased or if an update is available
