change of ID/Username?

Is it possible to allow change of ID/Username?

 

At present my username is *@hotmail.com.  I wish to use *@gmail.com .  If I enter the change will it affect the use of my Playbook?

 

My reason is that if BB10 allows use of Android apps then I hope will not have to pay again for google apps that I use on my phone and other tablet. I much prefer the Playbook.

 

I do not want to enter any details at present in case I cause myself a problem.

 

Hope someone can advise.

 

Regards

You will have to security wipe then use or create the new BBID.

 

You will then have no access to your Blackberry World apps, you need to pay for them again.

How do you security wipe? I would not mind starting again.
