Samsung Tab 7.7: Google account question for downloading apps

Monday 28th of January 2013 /
Anyone know if this is possible? I want to keep my new tablet as free of personal information as possible, such as my contacts, Gmail email, calendar, etc. This is in case something happens such as loss or theft, I don't want to worry about my personal information falling into the wrong hands. I went into the Google Play app to download apps, but the first question required was a user account. When I entered my normal Google/Gmail user account as for my Note 2 phone, all my information automatically populated to the tablet, such as my Gmail account, calendar and contacts. I don't want this, I want these apps to be completely empty of information. So I had to do a factory reset to erase all the populated information, and start over again. I then entered a different Gmail account that I know has zero information as to calendar/contacts/Gmail. So with the alternate Gmail account, I was able to now install apps to my tablet, but not having my personal information populate the tablet. So the question is this: I paid for various apps through the Google Play store using my primary Google a

Wednesday 27th of January 2010 /
I have a general account question. Right now my family has myself, my mom, and my sister. My wife is on a family plan with her father and sisters. Is it possible for her to transfer over to my phone line, keep the same number, etc?She's wanting a Pixi/Pre (don't kill me, I have a Droid, haha) and I figured I might as well add her to my plan. Just need to know what all I need to do for that, thanks!

Please Help with Simple Account Question

Monday 21st of April 2014 /
When I first got my Galaxy tablet (it's a tab pro) but I think you all in this area can help me, I set up my Google account. Since then I've changed the my google id and password. But I can't figure out how to change the way it's set up on my tablet. On my Galaxy phone it let me delete the Google account. So I just deleted the old one and then added it back with the new id and password. But I see no option on my tablet to delete the Google account I originally set up, or any option to change the id and password it uses. This is so simple and yet so frustrating that I can't figure out how to do that. Can someone help please?

Android central account question please help!!!!!

Wednesday 20th of August 2014 /
Since everyone just reads the other question I asked but no response and seeing as the title wording probably wasn't very descriptive and I cannot edit it I will make this one. I CANT MAKE ANOTHER ACCOUNT because my OLD ACCOUNT is linked to my GMAIL and my FACEBOOK yet when I go to reset the password it sends the reset link to my COMCAST account that I NO LONGER have. Everytime I attempt to log in with GMAIL and FB it says these accounts are linked to an account and I need to login. I have tried every password I could think of and can't get in and can't create a new account. Can an admin please please please help me reset my password? I've been looking all over the site for a contact to send a request but there is nothing. I have all the information and since the accounts are linked to my gmail can the reset link be sent to that address instead? My user name is missdeevi and contact information is debra dot valdez at gmail, reset link is being sent to debra dot valdez at comcast which I no longer have access to. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Multiple Devices, one account question

Tuesday 23rd of December 2014 /
Hello everyone, I have a quick question, and really appreciate the help. I recently converted my wife from iOS (iPhone 6 to moto x), and she loves it so far. My question is this: I added my account to her device solely to giving her access to games and apps that I have already purchased. My problem is that any app I download (for example onenote) automatically downloads on her moto x. How do I prevent this? Thanks! -Blue
