    :confused: I just bought a tablet from craigslist and the prior owners facebook and email are saved. I can't figure how to reset or logout to enter my info. I think I have a lanpad, not positive. When I go to about device, the model # is Flytouch 256M Firmware 1.9.1.v01
    Build number WMT2.0_88. Sorry I am clueless.:confused:

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    You have one of the economy VIA 8505 chipset Tablets. You need to let is boot up. Tap on the tab on the side of the screen or if you have three buttons, click on the button which has three lines beside it. You need to scroll the screen to Settings or tap on the Settings button.
    Then scroll to Accounts and Sync. Tap on this. Tap on the username/email address which should be the old owner. There should now be a button at the bottom for remove account. Click on this. You may be challenged to be sure. Once you have done that you can now input your email address.

    Best of Luck
