@essjay1 thank you for your concern, but no, I am not pissed. And my Google account is safe and sound and now switched over to a non-Telus email account. It was a hassle, and my point of posting was that it would have been much easier to switch the account before signing up for a migration appointment. Having it on the migration day checklist was too late, the conflict already existed once Telus created the new account.
Anyway, all good. And the best part was this proded me along enough to dump my Telus email from anything important so I don't get stuck again if they change something else. Or if Telus email goes down for an extended period (not that that would ever happen right?).
So, in summary, if you have a Google device which uses a Telus.net email for log-in, switch it to something else before you sign up for the migration. You can always switch it back afterwards but it will be tied to the Google account managed by Telus, which is not something I was willing to risk.
