Okay - we have a Galaxy Note 2 - however, Mom and I have separate Google accounts - can you have muiltiple accounts on the SAME tablet?  This is needed because (naturally) Mom and I have different app/ga/e/etc. preferences - is there a way to create a second profile (for my use) on the Note 2?

Are you talking Note 10.1 2 or just the (phablet) Note 2?


You need 4.2 to use multiple accounts IF the notes ever support that. Nexus and other tablets can do multiple users with sepetaye apps and data.

I'm referring to the Note 2 (7" wireless-only tablet).

Well, if you are on Android 4.2 or newer, there is a profiles feature you could use.

Thanks, techbeck - now I can add my profile and leave hers alone.
