Synchronizing with a Google Account

Synchronizing with a Google Account

Signing in to your Google Account lets you synchronize Gmail™/Google Mail™ and your Google contacts and calendars between your phone and the web. You also need to sign in to a Google Account to use Google applications such as Google Talk™ and Android Market™.

You can add more than one Google Account on your phone. However, subsequent Google Accounts can only synchronize Gmail/Google Mail and contacts. Other Google services use the first Google Account you added.

Note: If you skipped signing in to a Google Account when you first set up your phone, you may encounter problems when using some Google applications. If these problems persist, you may need to factory reset your phone and enter your Google Account details when you set up the phone again. To factory reset your phone, see Performing a factory reset (hard reset).
  1. From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Accounts & sync.
  2. Tap Add account > Google.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions to sign in to an account or create a new account.
