IMPORTANT: Using your UM-Google account with an Android phone or device

Dear Ross Community:
 
This message is for current and potential users of Android devices, tablets and phones.
 
Initial setup of an Android device requires you to enter a "master Gmail account."  This must be a personal Gmail account ending in @gmail.com.  If you attempt to use your @umich.edu address as a master account, the device will accept it, but will behave inconsistently and require a reset.
 
Note that this only refers to the "master account," which is configured during initial Android setup.  This has nothing to do with using your Android device to read your @umich.edu email, and instructions for that can be found here.
 
If you have any questions, please respond to this message or contact the Ross Helpdesk.
 
Thank you,

Ross Technology
