A Google Account is a user account that provides access to Google-owned services such as Gmail, Google Calendar, YouTube, and Google Maps, especially for Android users. When you buy a new Android phone, the first thing you need to do is to create and add a Google account on Android so as to use service that Google provides.

Reasons Why You Should Have Your Own Google Account:

•  To sync different accounts on one device and receive emails;

•  To sync previous data such as contacts, calender, and so on;

•  To sync settings of your Android;

•  To enjoy Google service, Google Talk, Google Map, Google Groups, etc.

May we prompt that Google may block an account for different reasons, such as an inactive account or entering an age that is not old enough to own a Google account. You can provide proof of identity through valid photo ID,or a small credit card payment (at a cost of 0.30 USD) to reactive your account.
