Re: carnt log in to gmail.......

Yes, restoring to factory settings would do it, too.  A bit of a pain, though not too bad if you have only just got it and don't have too much stuff on it.  Glad you've got it sorted.

Re: carnt log in to gmail.......

It seems rather odd that it has someone else's account on it, unless it was a returned phone... i think you can erase the account on the phine by going to Settings - Accounts & sync - tapping the gmail account that is shown on there and then selecting Remove account from the bottom of the screen.  That should then enable you to put in your own account details.
