Can't sign on with an @hotmail.com Google account? Vdles 12/16/11 4:33 PM
Hey there,

Just got my new Android phone today and I'm trying to access the marketplace. It askes me to fill in my Google account info which I do, but then tells me I don't have a GMail account and won't allow me to continue without creating one. My Google account is associated with my hotmail with my username when I sign on being xxx...@hotmail.com, but for some reason my phone feels I need a gmail account though I've been told by friends and searches that signing on with my Google account is all I need.

Do I need to make a gmail account and associate it with my Google account just to be able to run it on my android? I'd rather not have to make another account.

Yes, that's how you have to do it. Hotmail is not part of Google.
