    Do you know that you cannot remove an old mobile phone or Android based device form you Google account. This must be a breach of something.

    Can you get another google account to segregate accounts, and then change your device to the new account? That way you could still use your old account for all the things you use if for now, and then have the new account to just have your phone device associated with the new unused account.

    I have used mail.ru to set up segregated accounts before. You can then associate the mail.ru account with a new google account. If you are a bit paranoid, like me, you can mask your IP using a proxy while setting both new accounts.
