    setting up a second google account

    I need to add a second google account to my SE X10i but every time I get to the point of signing in I get the following message:

    Can't establish a reliable data connection to the server. This could be a temporary problem or your phone mayu not be provisiioned for data services. If it continues call custoemr care.

    This happens on 3G and wifi, I have the phone set so that it won't turn off. I set up the tablet first try but the phone just won't work.

    Any ideas? Who do they mean by customer care?

    I'm guessing your carrier's customer support department is what they mean.

    As for the problem preventing it from working, I'm stumped. I'm also heading to bed so hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will be by shortly to help.

    It may not allow you to setup a second account from the phone. Create a second Gmail account on a pc and then go to add an account.

    Unfortunately that is what I was doing. Trying to sign in is when the error happens.

    An hour on the phone to my carrier only determined that the error doesn't say what the problem is. The tech got the same error from the centre of Melbourne, he also has an SE. He is investigating and I should have some sort of answer tomorrow night.

    By the way, at one point they put me through to Sony and the tech there told me the SE Xperia X10 will be updated to android 2.3 in the next couple of months, ie in the next couple of months they will send the updates to the carriers.

    Thanks for the news.

    In the real world that means you can expect the update before Christmas, so don't hold your breath.

    Hopefully you'll get some good news on your problem in the next day or so. Good luck!

    Well they didn't get back to me but I now have Gingerbread and that solved the issue. I added both accounts with no issues straight after the upgrade.

    BTW the reason for 2 accounts is that if you add people to circles in g+, google adds them to your address book in gmail. If you use that gmail for your phone address book don't use it for g+ unless you want everyone you follow in your address book. Yes I had Johnny Depp and Alyssa Milano in my address book for a short time. When I deleted them from my address book it deleted them from my circles.

    Sounds like the integration may be crossing a line somewhere.

    I've reported it to google via the g+ report button and also gave them the full details of the debacle when I deactivated the first g+ account giving it as the reason for getting rid of the account.
