    To change the primary Gmail account on the device you have to do a factory reset.

    Have you tried to reset the password?

    If you change Gmail accounts you will lose your apps. They are tied to that gmail account.

    Keep in mind that this is a Google phone. It's unfortunate how many people don't seem to realize that going in. Your contacts, your email, and your apps are all tied in with Google.
