Basically, I want to change my current Gmail address and associate my mobile number with new Gmail address (I created my current address years ago with not-so-professional ID).

Apparently, Gmail won't allow to create multiple addresses with same mobile number (you need to authenticate mobile number).

Is there any way I can achieve this (without switching to other email providers)?


I am not sure for mac, but for Android you can remove the phone number from old email and add to new email.

  1. Open Setting
  2. Google(setting)
  3. Manage Google Account
  4. Personal Info
  5. Contact Info
  6. Phone > Select your number (301112333...)
  7. Click Dustbin symbol to delete

Yes, you can remove your existing number on gmail and then you can add new number.
