Thank you for your question, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.

The only way to do this is reset the phone, as the account is the central link to the phone.

The email address is the ID of the account, this cannot be changed.

This will remove all data and return the phone to new, but this cannot be avoided.

To do the reset.

go to settings - about - reset on the phone.

Once the reset is complete, you then setup the phone using a new account in place of the old one.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
