Surely there must be a way to make Gmail my default email account. I have four other email accounts that I have set up in the email app, but I use gmail more than any of the others. Gmail I have set up in the gmail app. I cannot find any way to make gmail my default email account. You would think that since gmail is so tightly woven into the android experience, that there would be an easy way to do this. The only way that I can think of is to reset the phone back to factory and then instead of using the gmail app, add gmail through the email app. To me this is unacceptable.
