First: your gonna need a google account that's set up with the proper "nickname" that you want (if you don't already have one).

Second: on your phone do the following at the home screen;

press menu ---> settings ---> applications ---> manage applications, you will get a message "Computing application sizes" then it will go to all apps installed on the phone.

Third: scroll down to "Google Apps" and click it to enter it.

Fouth: click on the "Clear data" button, you should get a black triangle with a white "exclamation point" (!) in it after a few seconds in the top left corner.

Fifth: click the back button until you get back to your home screen.

Lastly: pull down the notification menu and click on the message "Your account must be updated" Follow the onscreen instruction till you get to where it asks you to "create" or "sign in", click "sign in" and enter YOUR google account info. You'll get a message saying that you are signing in and it may take up to five minutes... then click "Finish"

Enjoy!!!

Does your google.com account (not your gmail.com account [google.com uses same username and password as your gmail.com account]) reflect the "nickname" i.e. mr vip? If not then that's where you need to make the neccessary changes.

https://www.google.com/accounts/Login

Hope this helps.

Really?? It should work, I mean, the instructions come straight from google. I've tried this myself twice and it worked every time... Hmmm....

I have been searching all over the place trying to find out how to change the main gmail account from my wife to mine and tried all kinds of things. But clearing the Google Apps cache worked! Thanks a lot!!
