Welcome to the Apple community.
If you have changed your Apple ID, you need to delete your iCloud account on your iOS device (settings > iCloud, scroll down and delete account), and then add your iCloud account back using your updated details.

What if I'd like to keep my pictures from Photo Stream? I changed the name of my Apple ID associated with my iCloud account and don't want to lose the pictures! I'm afraid to proceed.

I've tried to delete the account on my phone, but the old email address still pops up for me to enter the password before turning off "Find my iPhone". I'm loving the security, but really! When I go to Apple id on my laptop, it shows my new email address. This is frustrating!

OK. I solved my issue. Before changing your address on your Apple ID, you MUST be signed out of iCloud and iTunes on your phone! If your old email keeps reappearing on your phone (and is grayed out), you'll have to go to your computer and change address back to the OLD address. Then, go back to phone and either (1) sign out or (2) remove the iCloud and/or iTunes apps which are opened - (which you'll be prompted to use old email address to verify). Finally, go back to computer and change email address back to the new one. You'll then be able to set up apps on phone using the changed email address.
Ugh, it took a while, but it worked!
