Delete a Gmail Address – Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications

A few years ago I got a Gmail address to go with a blogger.com account, but it never came to fruition. Later, I set up other Gmail addresses for more convenient uses, like my banking and online shopping. Now I would like to get rid of the old address linked to the blog, because I heard that Google will only allow 4 addresses to be associated with a single phone number. (Is this true? If not, this might solve my problems…) It seems they now require a verification phone number for all email addresses, so it’s not possible to create a new address without address.

When I tried to delete this initial address, it warns me that a huge number of ‘conversations’ will be deleted. Much more than could have been associated with this original address. I barely used it. Is there some sort of “consolidation” of all Gmail addresses into a single Google account? Isn’t it possible to remove a single address from a group associated with a particular phone number? Or is it perhaps the very first address associated with the full account? I do NOT want these other addresses removed. They are now very important. But this first address is a problem. Is there a way to get rid of it without losing the others?
