As of mid-2011 the Android Market supports multiple accounts. To add another account... Press menu button – select settings – Accounts and Sync – tap on “Add account” and add your another gmail account. To activate or use another gmail account in the market, open the new market app (v 3.0.26) and select “Accounts”. A list will pop-up showing all ...

Being "logged in" is a misconception. Even when you are "logged in" when you use a browser, this is handled by the storage of a cookie with an authentication token stored in it. On the device is sort of the same, except it is not a "cookie". When you set up your account, an authentication token is requested and stored on the device. A new token can also be ...

There's no way to do this. It's been posed on Gmail's support forums in the past and the answer has always been (from the linked discussion above): ... Google's native apps on Android phones are designed to use the phone itself to sign in and out. If you're concerned about account security on your phone I recommend you add a lock pattern or PIN to ...

The Amazon Kindle Store and the Google Android Market are different stores. Apps you buy in one store are not honored in the other store. You can install the Amazon Store on your Nexus One pretty easily, so you'll be able to use Apps you buy on your Fire on your Nexus One. But going the other way is more trouble (it currently requires you've rooted your ...

Your application purchases are tied to your Google Account and can be installed an unlimited amount of times on any device http://market.android.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=113410

In short, you have a non-Google-approved device. That's why there are no Google apps on it. And you can't download from the Market unless you have the Market installed on your device. There are ways to get the Market on your device anyways, though. (See this question). However, none of those ways will have a "reputable link" for you to download. You're ...

You will not have to repurchase them if you associate the same Google account with the new device. They will be available in your market to re-download. I don't know if you can have more then one phone associated with the same account, but I did not do anything when I got a new phone, except associate my google account to the new phone.

What do you mean, by 'delete it' exactly? Your phone needs to be linked to a Google account, no matter what (as far as I know). If you do wish to change the "main" Google account your phone is linked with, a factory reset is the way. I've had to do it myself a few times. If you just want to stop receiving Gmail notifications, go into Settings > Accounts ...

There's an awkward solution: Renaming the package name inside an apk as proposed by Adobe to fix a nasty limitation of their AIR framework, XDA has the same too. All use apktool to reverse engineer an app (unpack apk, change package name in AndroidManifest.xml, repack, resign). Note: This won't change locations on the SD card though (if it's used, all 5 ...

Obvious: It syncs Google+ notifications if you have a Google+ account. For example, comments on one of your posts (depending on your notification settings). Not as obvious: You need the Google+ app for it to work.

P.T. details how to accomplish this by simply adding another account to the phone and then selecting it in Google Play Store settings. It's worth noting that originally the only way to change the Google Account associated with the Google Play Store was to do a factory reset of your phone and set it up again from scratch.

Yes (if I understand you correctly). Just go into Settings - Accounts and Sync, then modify what things are synced per account. In other words, work@gmail.com can be set to sync gmail, contacts, calendar, etc. But you can set play@gmail.com to just sync gmail (not contacts, etc). There are checkboxes once you add the account.

There are ways to do it without a factory reset. However, depending upon the phone, it may not work without being linked with a Google account. I'm not sure about the Hero one way or the other. See here. Another option is that you could just create a dummy Google account, then never use it.

Android comes with an Email app that lets you use any POP3, IMAP, or Exchange account. Talk can be replaced by Meebo, eBuddy Messenger, and many others. Voice is a fairly unique service but some features can be sort of replaced -- you can use a SIP phone number and an app like Sipdroid for calls, or something like Kik Messenger for text-like instant ...

EDIT: Looks like this is coming, according to Google employee Colin Gibbs, on this Google Mobile Support forum thread: Thanks for being patient while we work on this feature. When we launched Android 3.0 (Honeycomb), we added support to Google Talk for multiple accounts. We're currently working on bringing the feature to phones as well. ...

You can't do this because: There's only one Google Services Framework running for all accounts. Google Accounts credentials are stored centrally from where Google Apps authenticate. But, there's a way to solve your issue: Turn on IMAP from Gmail settings. And, use IMAP in default Email app or K-9 Mail app. Done! Play Store can't see it..

As far as I know there is no way that you can limit the ability of the phone to edit content. That said there are many steps you can take to ensure that somebody won't be able to get to the stage where they can delete your content and dealing with it if it happens: setup a pin number on your sim setup a lock screen on your phone install an application ...

Version 1.0.2 is out, and appears that it's going to fix your issue. From the release notes: What's in this version: Spiffy new profile icon on the menu screen Handle multiple Gmail accounts on first sign in Minor UI polish (emphasis mine) Unfortunately, I don't have my own invitation to Google+, so I'm not able to test this.

Amazon App Store also follows the same model. I had to switch to a different ROM after clearing cache and reinstall on my NotionInk Adam Tablet. Through the browser I reinstalled the AmazonAppStore App. I used the same amazon UserID and passwd. It immeidately recognized all the apps I had purchased and provided option to download and re-install them.

You just have to re-download them, not re-purchase them. The apps are tied to your account, not your device. As far as I know you don't have to do a thing to your old device before your apps are available for download and installation on your new one. Post #2 in this thread states the same, for what it's worth.

Here are three option, but 2nd and 3rd maybe works better xD You can go to Settings/Applications And CLEAR DATA to Android Market app and Google Services Framework Or you can try to go to Settings/Accounts & Sync click on your account and hit on Remove Account Button Or try to clear data in the Gmail program, it should ask for a new account xD That ...

(1) What are the non-Google alternatives to GMail, Talk, Voice, Maps, Google Calendar on the Nexus One? Can't say specifically about Nexus One, but the stock Android platform does not come with Google-branded apps; so, yes, it is possible for the phone to live without Google. However, IMO if you're using Android and avoiding Google's services, you're ...

First, I wouldn't be that worried about 'hiding' the phone. I would be worried that if he can see what they download, his account is still attached to that phone. which means they can see EVERYTHING he downloads, emails, chats, etc. He needs to change the password on the gmail account. Maybe, for extra security, turn on 2 step verification. You can't, at ...

I had this issue with my old G1. The only resolution I was able to find was to do a factory reset on the phone and re-enter the Google ID with the @gmail.com extension, as OS version I was running does not have the ability to remove your Google account. Newer OS versions do seem to have the ability to remove your Google account from the phone and re-enter ...

So to clarify, you want to use the app simultaneously on two phones? In that case the link pointed to by Dennis might not apply, since that one seems to be for the case when you buy a new phone and stop using the old one. Edit: Actually it looks like having multiple active devices simultaneously should not be an issue, from this other question: Multiple ...

As you've pretty much said, the official Google Talk client doesn't have any way to select an account for it. Unless you want to be constantly resetting your phone and changing the primary account, you won't be able to use it with multiple accounts. You can of course request the feature; see the comments below. I recommend using eBuddy Messenger instead. ...

Looks like this is a very common problem, and I guess the google guys are on it, but so far, no solution. I bought an Archos tablet and for two days I've been trying to download and install a good browser. I tried every single solution I found in every single forum on line (believe me when I say that it is a very common problem!!!). No luck. What worked ...

I guess this is by design as the majority of users don't have 4 accounts on their phone. The whole idea of those messages is to give the user the opportunity to download a new version as soon as it comes out. You may not want to use your mobile data when you don't want it to. Maybe the update automatically tickbox would bypass this message, however it will ...

The only way to remove the other Accounts from the Market is to unsync them from the phone. Settings > Accounts & Sync > Click the google account > Press Remove Account Perhaps remove all three, add your Account A, load the market. Then go and add the other two accounts through Accounts & Sync and not through the market. This should leave Account ...

Raw contacts are joined according to rules described at Using the Contacts API: Two raw contacts are considered to be a match if at least one of these conditions is met: They have matching names. Their names consist of the same words but in different order (for example, "Bob Parr" and "Parr, Bob") One of them has a common short name for the ...
