The issue that all Android users are facing is that once you set up your Google account on an Android phone, there is no option to clear/remove the account.You can’t change the Google Account in case you want to use another account on your phone. Yes, it’s kinda annoying and surprisingly, no one has added that option till now.
I faced a similar issue and after Goggling for some tricks and playing with the options myself, I have come up with the following methods to clear your Google account from your phone.
One easy way that I have tested on my HTC Hero is to clear the data of the Google Apps app on your phone. It works, but remember, your contacts also gets removed. So make sure you create a backup somewhere.
Note: This is not a factory reset because this method does NOT clear your call log.
* Open Menu, and go to Settings.
* Select Applications
and then go to Manage Applications.
* Look for the app “Google Apps” and tap it.
* Now tap the “Clear data” button.
* Now, in the Notifications (top of the screen) you will see a new notification.
* Tap “Your account must be updated”.
* Now enter your new Google account info.
* Reboot your phone and you’re all done!
Your new Google account should be up and running now. Now you just need to get your contacts back and your phone will be just like it was before.
Another way to clear/change your Google Account is by changing your password from a computer and then reboot the phone. When the phone starts again, you will be prompted for the correct Google Accounts info. Change the info there.
