How do I sign in to my account: walt.brockman@gmail.com from this device?

in Android devices, accounts are managed in the settings tab. As most of the android services are managed via the gmail account assigned, the primary gmail account does most of the functions, like email, text and photo storage built in.

Go to Settings, accounts, and select add account. Google should be an option to select then entire your credentials.

after its logs in successfully, you can decide which functions to sync with your phone. the gmail app is the primary email app, and contacts will be synced with your phone as well as drive, and calendar.
