Our email changed at work, so I had to change the email for my icloud account.  On my iphone 5 I can not find where to change it in settings when I go in to my icloud on my phone the option to change the account is not abled.  I have gone on line and done it, but is it possible to do it with out deleting my icloud off my phone and readding it??

    You need to be specific about what you are actually trying to change in the account configuration. Sometimes deleting the account and setting it up as a new account is faster and more successful.

    You delete the account, then set it up again using your new ID: scroll down, hit delete account. Then set it up again.

    OK, so your email address for work changed. Did you create a new Apple ID or did you change the existing Apple ID to the new address?
