    Yes you can. Your google contacts will automatically be restored. After you enter your google account you will have the option of whether or not you want your apps/settings etc to be automatically restored. Make sure you leave that option unchecked and you should be good.

    Yeah it will but then he can just go into the settings later and change it back to where google backs everything up again if he wants to.
