  1. Hi’
    Method 1 did not work for me.
    I could not change account or add a new one as said in method 2.
    In method 3, I can not remove my Gmail account without restore factory settings and delete everything from my phone, so can’t use method 3 either… :o(
    The phone in question is a Samsung Galaxy SII (Model: GT-I9100) Android-version 2.3.5
