1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Not sure if this has been asked before(did a few searches on the forum and internet), but if it has it would be great if you could link me to it.

    I think the problem is probably me, but I am tired of spinning my wheels on this isssue...

    I just received my Droid 3 (great phone so far!) this past week and am trying to get the Google+ account set up on the app. I just switched from the Droid1 where I have the google+ app and was working with my account. I was running froyo on the D1 w/no modifications, root etc.

    I am now on the D3 w/Android 2.3 and trying to add my account which is based off of a hotmail email address.(I had Igoogle set up through my hotmail as I did not have a gmail account until later). Anyway, when I open the Google+ app on the Droid 3 it asks me what email account I want to use to sign in. It gives me the choice of my 3 gmail accounts, but not my hotmail. I do have my hotmail set up as an account on the phone( I use the email app w/my hotmail).

    I look in the my accounts app and when I try to add a new account it does not seem to give a google+ option for adding new accounts.

    Anyone else had this issue and know the fix?

    Thanks! :greendroid:

    I'm pretty sure you have to use a Gmail address.

    Yes your account on G+ is definitely a gmail address.
