Developer sign up is account registered to credit card owner

 I am creating an android developer account to put an app I made on the
market.  I was an unwise teenager with my financial self many years
ago and thus do not have a credit card.  My significant other was more
than willing to help out.  However it appears that by signing up under
my Google account but using her cc it seems to want to register the
account in her name.  It might just be deceiving but after submitting
payment I get to the screen asking me to accept this: "I agree and I
am willing to associate my credit card and account registration above
with the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement."  However in
the box above it says "Registered To: XXX" where XXX is my significant
others name.  I'd like everything to remain in my name and use my bank
account but for the credit card payment I'm getting outside help.  It
seems Google does not support this or am I reading all this wrong?  It
also turns out I might have a cc of my own in 2-3 weeks but would
prefer not to wait that long.  So if in the future I can change the
credit card associated that would work too.  I do not want to screw
this up since I'd prefer not to lose $25.


Thanks!

 Fixed subject.

As well, it appears from what I can tell if I accept

"I agree and I
am willing to associate my credit card and account registration above
with the Android Market Developer Distribution Agreement."

With the credit card from someone else then the developer side of the 
account will be forever locked to that person.  It just feels wrong that 
the credit card is used for anything more than just payment.

 I have your same problem and did just what you want to do.
The credit card info is registered to your checkout account. the payment
goes to your significant other but the Market account registered is yours.
When you get your own credit card you can just go to your google checkout
account, add your new CC info and remove the other person's info from there
(just checked and it's possible to remove the CC info)

 I took your advice and went along with it.  It does appear that the 
credit card does not bind in some special way.  When I get my own I can 
remove it.  The only stipulation is at least one card always has to be 
on the account.  Everything else has been under my name, number, email, etc.


Thanks!

1. Questions regarding Opencore and System.img file

This would be a better question for android-platform, since
android-developers is for people using the SDK.

The G1 is not designed to allow users to modify or update the system
on their own. You should look into getting an ADP1, which is the exact
same hardware but doesn't have any restrictions on using custom system
images.

2. phishing via google mail on G

Hello,

I have a slight security concern on the G1 phone, when you receive an
email, there is no way in which to view the original message header,
which surely makes phishing attacks all the more simple.

Simply send a message with a fake "From" and "Reply-To" address and
then embed a hyperlink such as <a href="http://
www.dodgy.com">www.paypal.com</a>

Bingo!

Would it not be possible to include some kind of warning as is the
case with web version of google mail, such as:

Warning: This message may not be from the alleged person or
organisation. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the
sender with any personal information.

Or add a menu option to view the orignal message header?

Cheers
