  1. re-Add 2nd account name


    I know this is insanely easy, but I suffer from Oldztimerz accompanied by Techno-Ineptitude.


    Recently had factory replace battery, which deleted some things I needed to re-install;

    what I can't remember for the life of me is how to add MY name as 2nd 'sign-in' option.


    When signing-in, my wife's name was atop mine...so 'my account' would have my individual

    info/settings/mail/etc. I've gone to Settings>Accounts>Family & Other Users>Add...., but

    whichever option I try, it adds my e-mail address as the 'sign-in/name' option. Just want

    to be told (please feel free to speak '3rd grade' or 'ole bazzerd') how to add my NAME.


    Thank you

    :)
