    Google account Thrive sign-in at start up...can it be transferred to another user?

    Just got the Thrive last week, and signed in with my google account. The device now shows up in my google account. Can I transfer the info stored in my account to another's account? I'm thinking I'll probably need to do a hard reset, but is there a way around this? Thanks

    If you do a factory reset, it doesn't delete info from your account, only the Thrive.

    Thrive was purchased as a gift, but I went ahead and signed into my own account at start up, thinking account sync could be changed later. Can I change the account user once it is rooted?

    Are you asking if you can change the primary account after rooting? If so, then no, it can only be changed with a factory reset.

    Technically, if one is rooted there are files one can delete/alter to accomplish this. But, it's not foolproof. A factory reset is the best course, especially if any apps were installed via the Market.

    Actually, I do believe you can. Go to SETTINGS -> ACCOUNTS & SYNC and select your GMail account. At the top, select REMOVE ACCOUNT. After removing the account, select ADD ACCOUNT and add your new GMail account.
