    removing my email account

    Hello guys,

    I am one of the few TF-101 users still rockin their tablet. Actually, I've re-purposed it for my 8 yr old son who uses it to surf Kids Youtube and play minecraft, which it does well.

    I also have a ME301T that is now my go to tablet, desktop and an iphone 4s. Phone's a little old but it was free so what the heck.

    Here is my problem. The TF-101 still has my email account (via my IP/Roadrunner) on it which my son can't access as I've installed parental software but it is not necessary to be on there anymore, so I'd like to remove it. Problem is, I can't seem to do that. I'd really like to not have to reinstall everything all over again just to remove (i.e., not set up in first place) the email account. I also have a google account so that I can use the playstore. That I want to keep so I can download apps for my son when requested.

    I've tried the procedures normally used to remove email accounts from android device but I never seem to be presented with a "delete account" option.

    Also, as my son often leaves the TF-101 on even when not in use (not sure if this is relevant) sometimes I can not access my email on my iphone as it says that my email is inaccessible and in use by another device (I assume the TF-101).

    What is it that I need to do on the TF-101 and/or the iphone. I never get the error message when accessing my mail using a laptop or desktop. Any ideas?

    Assuming you are using an email app, you could either just uninstall the app in question, or, if it is the stock email app, then go to...
    settings, apps, all
    find the email app
    clear cache, clear data, force close
    cold boot the tf101

    If you want to, then uninstall updates (if the next option isn't immediately visible)
    Disable the app entirely (you can always re-enable it later if you wish to)

    Your email account should then be toast on the tf101!!
