New query re emails 2nd laptop

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Sat Nov 14, 2015 7:13 pm

Simple question from a dumbo.
You will know I have changed my O2 login address purely to get emails in from O2
I have changed from a btinternet address to a gmail one (ONLY FOR O2)
I have done this on my UK laptop.....

I have a second laptop in Spain.....(without Gmail) When I turn that on and go to O2 my old BTinternet address will be displayed automatically..
My question is this....do I have to go through the whole change your email process again on the second (Spain) laptop....or can I just delete the btinternet one and type gmail in the box....?
Yours in desperation.....confused.com :crazy

Just log in using your Gmail.
The account log on is not device specific.

I don't have Gmail on the laptop in Spain... Can I put it on without installing Chrome?

I only ask because my MOBILE wont let me access the site via email..I have to go in via My O2 app....(since changed)

If you log in with chrome on one device, that info is shared with all other devices with that Google account logged into chrome

As you know I did have Chrome put on here "reluctantly" ....but I still use FF to log in.....because this is what I have and used all the time...

Right...I have checked my tablet re accessing O2 forum via new Gmail address...I deleted old BT internet one.. put in new and voila it worked..

It still does NOT work on phone though.....

So wondering if I should add Gmail into account settings on the phone? I am trying to work things out logically all on my own.. :lol :lol :halo

I have Google obviously ....

Or should I reinstall Google??....( What the hell am I saying?) :lol :lol

Go to application manager, find chrome and clear cache and data.
Reboot phone, sign back into chrome browser and try forum again.

Have just come to do it....cleared the cache...but very wary about clearing data Rich. It says it will all be lost permanently. :!:
What the hell am I going to lose?
