    Changing account associated to a Transformer

    I set my Transformer (my only Android device so far) to use my work e-mail account (which is hosted Google e-mail for a company I own)......based on that being the main e-mail account I use.

    However, if at some point in time I decided I wanted to have it associated with my personal e-mail account, which is a different Gmail account, is that possible? Or would I essentially be forced to wipe the device, and lose all the information I have on it (as well as apps I've purchased)?

    I'm pretty certain I remember someone with this question once before. I'm nearly positive that you can get in contact with Google on their Market web site and ask for a change in the associated account. If I remember is was a relatively painless ordeal. Once the credentials are changed to the new account everything will work the same including the paid apps.

    You can go to Settings - Accounts & Sync and remove your current account and add another

    You will still keep the apps installed that you had, but you will not be able to get updates on your paid apps unless that account is still associated with your device AFAIK.

    My advice would be to go into the accounts & sync and disable sync on most items (email, calendar, contacts) on your work email so you can still use the market for that account.
