    How to delete gmail account from HTC Hero without factory reset?

    Every time I try to remove the gmail account set up on my HTC Hero, it prompts me to do the factory reset. I am hesitated to do factory reset as it will erase my data and settings. Is it possible to delete the account without factory reset?

    hello,

    open the Menu
    go to Settings option,
    then Account & sync, move to your account right under Manage accounts.
    Click your account and you’ll see Data & Synchronization tab.
    Move down to the bottom and you’ll see Remove account.
    Then it will hint this “Do you really want to remove this account? Removing it will also delete all……”.
    If you have backup the data (Contacts, SMS etc),
    then just hit “Remove account”.

    Hello

    Yes you can delete your account.

    Just go to settings-->>accounts and sync-->>choose your account-->>then tap on remove account

    Done!!

    you dont need a factory reset anymore.

    then again when you want to add a account follow the same steps and tap on add account.

    Thank you

    Re: How to delete gmail account from HTC Hero without factory reset?

    Hello Guest,
    Ya, ofcourse it is possible to delete gmail account as well as any other account from your phone without factory reset. For this, just point to Menu>Settings>Accounts and sync. A list showing all the accounts in your phone such as Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Gmail etc. appears on screen. Tap on your Gmail Account. Now, a screen showing many sync options pops up. Just tap on "Remove Account" option at the centre of the screen. You will be asked to confirm deletion. Tap on Ok. That's it. Thank You. All the Best. :-)

    Re: How to delete gmail account from HTC Hero without factory reset?

    Hi,
    In order to delete the G-mail account in your device you can do one thing that is without losing the data you can remove the G-mail account but in order to do that you have to root your phone once that is done you will be able to delete the account. What you have to do is you have to root the phone and then install the application by name "Root Explorer" once the application once the application is installed open the application and enter into "System" folder and then delete the application by name "Vending.apk" that your android market also make sure to take a backup once that is done then reboot the phone and then remove the account. This method may work but if it is not working then only way to remove the account is to do a factory reset.
    Hope this Helps.

    Re: How to delete gmail account from HTC Hero without factory reset?

    dont know if a solution has been found for this issue but I think I have a workaround that does not include a factory reset or battery pull. Please take my solution with a grain of salt as I did not document it fully.

    1. First of all you need to go into the "Accounts and Import" settings of the gmail account that youre trying to add, this is done on your computer.

    2. Verify that "Multiple sign-in" is enabled, if not click edit.

    3. Enable the account by choosing "on or off", check the boxes that Google requires that you check then click "save".

    4. Go back to your phone to add the account(s) add the required usernames and passwords.

    5.You should have a list of gmail accounts, they arent in alpha order for some reason.

    6. Make sure the Background Data check box is checked and make sure the "Auto-sync" is checked.



    regards

    vinod
    7. Oh you should be able to setup different notifications for each account by going into the settings for that account in particular.

    Re: How to delete gmail account from HTC Hero without factory reset?

    Guys: You have ALL described how to remove a Gmail account which is NOT the primary one set up on first use of the phone. You cannot remove the primary Gmail account using this method: It gives the error message that you have to perform a factory reset. I'm still looking for a solution to this!
