    Wondering if any of you experienced this and if so did you get it resolved?

    I had to create a gmail account for a new smart phone for my wife. I used my normal email account as the account for password resets. Ever since then I can't log into YouTube unless I use the gmail account. If I try to use the other account it forces me to use gmail. I don't really give a rip, except I've effectively lost all the channels I subscribed to.

    BTW - Google bought YouTube a while back so they are now one happy family (this is sarcasm)

    Sounds like it merged the accounts, they've been nagging at me about this for quite a while. No idea on how to undo it. Buried in youtube account settings somewhere maybe.

    "Change which Google Account is linked to this account " i see this under "advanced" under account settings on youtube. Her phone probly needs its own gmail account.

    JVK - thanks for your response, that sounds like it. I remember being asked the question in a dialog and I selected "no", but sometimes "no" means "yes", so I probably screwed myself.

    ROTFLMAO - I fell right into that!
