  • Diptiranjan


    but can we use this i.e delete gmail and not other features associated with google, to change orkut login id? Because we can change orkut’s primary account details but not the login id if its already in gmail. So if we delete the old gmail and not orkut and associate it with a new gmail account, will the login id be also changed?

    Thanks again in advance

  • @ Diptiranjan

    If u delete the Gmail and orkut then you can log in with the gmail id  to orkut but then you can’t use gmail inbox fetures, email service….

  • Keerthi

    After I delete the ID ( using gmail removal confirmation), can anyone try to create an ID with the same user name? Like will gmail show the name as available when someone tries to create it?

    I want the option to never come up such that no one is able to create any id with that name. How can I get it done?

    • @ Keerthi

      If you delete your gmail account then your id will be available for other users,there is no such option that u can protect the user id after deleting the account.. so if u want particular id so its better not to delete the account 🙂
