    I just got my mom a Priv, and I have to make it as simple as humanly possible for her to switch from BB10 to Android (thanks WhatsApp!)

    So here is where I'm struggling. Google is so intrusive on everything!!!

    I have her email set up (Hotmail account) and there is an icon that that takes her straight to her email, as well as its on her hub.

    But then I started seeing a GMAIL notification... and I'm like WTF... she doesn't have gmail. So I opened the gmail app and her Hotmail was being viewed via the GMAIL app in addition to hub and email icon.

    I set up her google account using her existing Hotmail account. But in no way do I want gmail to be active on the phone.... its just more stuff I don't need to deal with.

    If the email is set up directly to the Hotmail server and showing up on her hub... why on earth is gmail duplicating this on its own??

    How do I stop it??? How do I get gmail to stop being active? Gow do I stop GMAIL notifications from even happening?

    How do I stop all these google things from wanting to do everything?? (drive, photo sync etc etc).

    We have Hotmail and onedrive set up. I want to just stop google from intruding.

    Go to Settings, Accounts, Google, and disable anything you don't need there.

    This is the fix. Just disable the Gmail app and you will no longer get duplicate notifications.

    Or just go into Gmail and set Sync to off.

    You didn't need to switch to a priv because of whatsapp!

    When your mom knows this he will beat the he'll out of you for replacing her loved bb10 for an android.
