Greetings!

 

Pulling down the notification bar on the top and hitting the far rightmost icon (users) show me as the owner of the phone.

My problem is that the owner name is my back-up/alternate e-mail. No idea how that happen. I do have a primary gmail account which I used when I set up the phone.

 

How do I change or edit myself as the owner?

 

I've tried going into "More Settings" but thats very limited and does not allow me to change owner or change email adress or change the name of the owner accout.

 

(I do have the option to make a new user, but theres no way of making that new user the owner of the phone as far as I know)

 

Do I have to factory reset and start all over again?

 

 

Thanks in advanced! Grinning Face
