Customer Question
I am a retired computer...
I am a retired computer analyst and specialist. That was many yrs ago. Then I used AOL, which allowed you to have several aliases. Now we have to have a google account. I am an octogenarian Granddaughter helped me to create a email name which is too long for me to type in when I get a cell phone. Can I use my original gmail address to sign in to my gmail account or may I add it to the long gmail account as an alternate sign in?
Can I delete the originally long sign-in and create a new shorter sign-in? I get messages saying my signin belongs to someone else I am that someone else!

Can I add an additional email to my google account - one that I can use to set up my google account on my cellphone? I understand that my original google account or email cannot be deleted.

Good morning! Sorry I didn't reply to your response sooner! I was asleep at that time. I typically check my messages throughout the day. I'm in the Central time zone so you are one hour ahead of me. To answer your question, we have a few options for you.

If your long email address is not important, we don't have to continue using it. We can sign you up for a new one and it can be shorter. You can give that out to friends and family to use.

If you need to keep the longer one, it is possible to setup multiple email accounts in your phone including Google ones. I have about 3 myself. They allow me to have one for friends and family and one for junk. On your phone, they will download into the same inbox.

Do you want to delete the longer one and start all over? You'd lose any messages in your email in the longer email address.

Do you know what kind of phone you have? That'll help me determine the best way to setup email on your phone.

My problem is that my NZ Vodafone e-mail account is about to be closed by Vodafone who will forward to my Gmail account. I have a gmail address which I've never used. The account address is stored on my smart phone and I believe this gmail account was opened for me when I bought my smart phone in March this year. For this reason I do not know the password. Google's sign-in system has defied my attempts, and those of a tech friend, to access my gmail account. All that happens is that I enter the Verification code and the next Google caption states: "Couldn't sign you in. Thanks for verifying your e-mail. Google couldn't verify that jeremythompson1956 belongs to you". This IS my gmail address. Where to from here? I'm running out of time and patience for Google. Thank you. Jeremy … read more
