Question about G+ account and my Android device skittlez 8/17/12 7:26 AM
When I first signed up for Google+, I used my yahoomail account rather than creating a gmail account because I'm lazy and changing my email address for a service I wasn't completely sold on at the time seemed pointless. Well I recently got an Android phone and had to create a gmail account for it. When I try to use the G+ app it keeps on trying to make me create a new account, without giving me the option to sign into the one that already exists. I can't change my google + account email from my desktop to my new gmail account either. Is there a way to fix this or do I need to delete my account and create a new one? Or would it be smarter to just put the plus.google.com link on my home page and sign into my original account that way? And if I do put plus.google.com link on my home page will I be missing out on any features from the app, besides auto-upload? I still want to be able to upload pics and stuff I just don't care about auto-upload because I would have had it turned off anyways.

Nevermind about using the plus.google.com link. It still keeps trying to make me setup a new account with giving me any other options. Annoying.

Hey skittlez,

Can you tell me a couple things about your phone:

  • What version of the App do you have? Is it the latest?
  • Device name / model
    • [Android] Is the device rooted?
    • [iOS] Is the device Jailbroken?
    • [Android] Is the device running a custom ROM?
  • When did this issue begin?


Thanks,

Natalie
