Hello,

I have 2 issues...

First is I've got a very very unique last name that only my immediate family has (that I know so far) and made a youtube channel under this gmail acct and wish I didn't, but I have built up this channel over the last year and wish to disassociate my first name initial and last name as my @gmail.com. So, I changed the name. Well, now all my real life contacts will see this (I know, I wasn't thinking). Is it possible to change my youtube personal email to a different new email without losing the content I've built already? To a complete different gmail addy AND the "name" associated with it?

My 2nd question is, when I try to make another gmail acct, it wants me to verify with a code sent to my non-existing cell phone, yes I am the last person on earth without a cell phone lol. I wasted so much money on it, I now use a computer app called TextNow for all phone calls and texts, for free. Well, gmail and every other sites requesting they send me a code to my allotted textnow number, won't recognize it as a cell number, therefore preventing me from confirming a new gmail and a boat load of other things for example fb...sigh. This is extremely frustrating as yeah, not everyone has a cell phone for the love of god.

Help pls??

Thank you
Hi

For your new Gmail you cannot use TextNow but you can use another email address to receive the code.

For YouTube get in touch with community experts and other users in the YouTube help forum. Click on join the discussion https://support.google.com/youtube/?hl=en#topic=7505892

Good luck
