Under Settings >> About Phone I see my first name, device name, Google account, phone number. I'd like to change the associated Google account. When I tap Google account, it only allows me to remove the account, not switch to another already on my phone. Is there any way to change this without removing the 1st account? It's associated with a lot of contacts and photos that I'll never be 100% certain I've completely backed up. Thanks!

I would back up everything you dont want to lose, remove the old account and then add the new one.

Removing the account only removes it from the phone, it doesn't delete it from Google servers.
