Deleting Primary GMail acct
Hello all. I took over my moms thrill and am trying to delete her email account. Unfortunately, when I try to delete it says "other programs need this program to run. To delete please do a hard reset." I am trying to avoid the hard reset. Any suggestions on making my Gmail account primary without doing a hard reset.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give.

Re: Deleting Primary GMail acct
the device will always default to the gmail account that was used when the device was set-up--it doesn't matter how many accounts you add through the gmail app or accounts/sync & try to delete any others.
this is why you can only see 1 Google Talk account & can't switch between any other google accounts--the phone itself is tied, primarily, to the main Google Account used by the phone--the account used when setting up the phone.
the only way to change the primary is to factory reset the phone, go through set-up, and enter your gmail account as the Primary on the phone.
