You might not use it for the email, but the phone uses the account to access contacts, location history, etc. It needs to be signed in properly.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

i don't think apps can be downloaded or updated if you aren't signed into google.
