    Hello,

    Can I use a smartphone working with Androïd without a @gmail.com email adress ?

    Otherwise, is it ok simply with a common Google Account ?

    Thank you for your answer.

    Thank you for the answer.

    In fact, Androïd Market requires for connection and downloading a Google Account.

    But I do not know if a gmail account is also necessary for this connection ?

    Sorry for the lack of precision in my question. I am pretty much asking about using Androïd Market than posting emails with the phone.

    From my experience, you need a Gmail to make it all work. When I got my Android, I created a Gmail account especially for the phone and don't use it for anything else.

    I already had a main Gmail account but didn't want to associate it with anything except my email. After getting the phone up and running, I set my main Gmail to retrieve email from the phone's Gmail account. That way I get all receipts from Android Market without having to log into the phone's Gmail account.

    Maybe all this is overkill but I wanted to keep things separate and have done so...
