Tried a number of things, but files such as contacts keep getting revied whenever one phone is changed.

If you want to keep the email address..
goto accounts and choose your existing Google account
uncheck the items youdon't want syncing

Erase contact storage as described below

To use another address

First setup a new Gmail account


Remove your other Gmail acct from your device


Delete old contacts
Goto settings...applications...contact storage


Delete the data


now gotio settings.accounts


add the new gmail

appears to have worked just fine. With the differences in user interfaces, it was a lot simpler to do on a motorola phone than a samsung.
Thanks a lot

Worked fine. Check the user interfaces to see which phone is easiest to set up the change
