I’ve had my personal...

I’ve had my personal email account thru’ Verizon. That is no longer the case. I’ve been using my work account for some time but it is time to create my own account separate from my employer. I created a gmail account under another name so that I could contact Google if in specific need. Can I change the name on that account to my own name, or should I set up a second account?

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Gmail? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

Tablet.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried?

Nothing so far. Think of me as your grandmother. I know nothing and can use all the help I can get.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Android Expert to know before I connect you?

I’m working with an iPhone 6S and iPad Air (probably 3 + years old). Please speak Apple or, preferably, English.
