So here is the problem.

I bought a used iphone

The seller kept some paid apps on it as an added bonus to my purchase (very nice of him)

He told me I wouldn't be able to update those apps but anything I installed would update fine


So he has been completely logged out in every way and my itunes is logged in

It works when I download free apps or purchase paid apps, it asks for MY itunes info

HOWEVER when I go to update apps, even the ones I downloaded with my itunes ID and password, it asks for HIS itunes ID and password




I would reset to factory settings but before I realized this problem existed,

I spent hours on hours the first two days of owning the phone customizing it to my liking, downloading tons of apps (including ones I paid for!), and adding my contacts and music. I really don't want to lose all of this.


How can I change it so that it updates with my info?

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1
