Android Phone - Removing Google e-mail account

I am giving my Galaxy S phone to my daughter after purchasing the S3 and find that if I wish to remove my g-mail account I would have to put the phone back to its factory condition. I do not wish to do that and wonder as to whether, if my daughter creates a g-mail account on the phone will you be able then to remove my account.Anyone?

No I don't think so. I believe you have to 'root' / 'jailbreak' and then change email in system root using editor on the phone.

But I have no idea how you do this.

I hope this helps enter link description here- it may be best if you create a new account for your daughter first

I believe that you can add another g-mail account and then de-select sync on other account. Not perfect, but as it is my daughter having the Galaxy S I can live with that. If it was going to A N Other then I would put back to factory condition.
