Email

How can I transfer my purchase history from my old Gmail account to my new account so I can associate the new account with my android? I have had my original Gmail account forever basically and would like to change it for one that has a more meaningful name instead of one that I thought was "cool" before. ha Don't want to lose my purchased Apps tho. Any help?

I am running a rooted Verizon Thunderbolt.

Thanks, keep up the great work!

  • No real solution (yet)... Best thing to do is contact the devs directly and explain the situation. Many will hook you up.


With the whole Siri thing with the iPhone 4S, I am curious about Voice Actions by Pannous, and how it compares to Vlingo and Google Voice Search.

Thanks,

Sam from Canada

Apps

Coming from Sprint customers only for now. The multimedia attachments will display on their mobile forwarding phone and in their email inbox when they enable text to email forwarding in their Google Voice settings. We are also planning on making them display in the Google Voice inbox.
