    Cant delete google account

    When I purchased my ATRIX a couple months ago, it was set up with my then google account. That account has been deleted and A new google account has been added. The old one keeps trying to load, only to come up with an error message. I have tried to remove the old one, but it say's has to be done via a complete reset to factory defaults. Why cant I remove this old account without losing all my data?

    Unfortunately you need to do a factory reset to enter the new account.

    really?

    can't you just delete all apps and stuff related to that account and then ask it to delete that account?


    Done with this.

    I don't think there is a way around it Bob. At least to my knowledge.

    Google account and MOTOBLUR account are fried to the phone's data when added in the setup process. Yes, a factory reset is necessary.

    Sorry.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    I don't think you can pass the set up without a google account.

    Then I guess you can. But once you set it up, the only way to delete it is with a factory reset. As a matter of fact I was having problems yesterday with my contact stock app crashing when I wanted to go to settings or view options. After several attempts, restart, battery pulls, and apps deletions I had enough and was going to delete my Gmail account because the problem was related to it.

    When I hit delete account a pop up screen came up telling me that the Gmail account is used for several services and the only way to do it was with a factory reset. I then opted to delete some apps that I though where related to the problem, performed a 5 minutes battery pull and everything worked. Still can't sinc my contacts with Google, but at least is not crashing anymore. I will let everyone know if I find a solution that does not involve a reset.

    Thanks to all, I did the reset to factory and entered the new gmail account. All went well. The reset did not delete my contacts or my photos.
