Everytime I sync my iphone 4s on iTunes (10.6) the apple id password box pops up with 6 different emails without the passwords. Every time I add a song or a playlist, the box pops up and I have to hit cancel six times cause each time a different email pops up and they are all the same each time. How do I get rid of this?
I've restored my phone a couple of times and this keeps happening with the same emails. I've noticed the same 12 songs greyed out every time I do a restore and I don't know where they come from. Could it be from iCloud?

iCloud attempts to download all media that is from the iTunes Store post-restore. This includes items that you synced using iTunes that is associated with various different Apple IDs.
It will try to download them every time you attempt to sync or restart your device. That's an inherent feature of iCloud and iOS 5+ PC-free setup.
Sounds to me like you have other people's media (*cough*filesharing*cough*) 'backed up' from your device's old library. Other than getting the content on the device via iTunes, obtaining the passwords for those accounts (not recommended/condoned if the accounts don't belong to you), or restore without backup, you're stuck seeing the popups.
I wonder if Apple knows about this tidbit... could be an easy way to find who's pirating apps and media...Member of the hackint0sh forums.

How can I find out which songs those are so I can delete them?

^Happens to me sometimes also, I think it has something to do with the jailbreak.
