Hi,

When my dad bought his new Android phone (Sony C2005), He registered it using my g-mail account (e-mail) - Knowing that at the same time, I'm registering my Samsung phone on the same g-mail account (e-mail).

It's easy to change my dad's primary (default) g-mail account on his phone device, but is there a way to keep the applications which he had already installed from Google Play Store (using my account) on his phone - as they are now - when he changes the primary account through which he downloaded them?

Kindly advise...
Thanks

Actually, I took the challenge yesterday, Removed the default (Primary) account), and added and new one (new g-mail) account... To my surprise the Applications remained intact, as they are...

My answer comes based on a practical trial I run in myself and it works... I rated the solution "B", since it could work during a temporary phase where Google Play Store are doing some maintenance and they might not allow the same to be  a rule in the future.
