    Hi, all. Hoping someone can help me out with a problem I'm having. I had two Gmail accounts on my phone. I wanted to delete one of them, but I made the mistake of deleting it online before removing it from my phone. Now I keep getting error messages because my phone is trying to log into the old account. I can't sign in to remove it from my phone since the accounts already been terminated. Does anyone know how I can remove this old account from my phone?


    Thanks!

    If it's the primary account, A factory reset is the only way to remove it.

    It is not. It's a second account I added later. The primary account is still active.

    You might try to clear cache and data for the gmail app.
    Just a guess, never heard of this problem.
