08-14-2008, 08:02 AM #1How to remove/change associated email ID within appstore?
I just bought a 3G iphone from a friend. When I go to the appstore and scroll down to the bottom, I see his email ID@hotmail.com. How do I change or remove his ID so I can configure mine?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks

I supose you could restore and set up as a new phone in Itunes.
Youd need Itunes to be set up with your own account though, which I supose you would have anyway.
I dont think that theres a way of doing it from the phone,

Any other ideas? The phone is already activated and if I restore it, would need to go thru the activation process and I hate to bug him again to lend me his sim card etc..

Connect the phone to your computer, open iTunes, sign out of his account, sign into yours, sync.

do you not have service? why can't you use YOUR sim card & activate?

go to iTunes Store in the iTunes program, then click on his ID in the upper right hand corner, and sign in with yours. sync your phone, voila.

Yeah, all you need to do has been mentioned here, just sign into your itunes account and perform a sync. Whatever itunes profile is active sticks to the iphone. I learned this when I pwnd my sister's iphone and she was buying apps on my account >.<
