I accidentily locked myself out of my iphone 4 when i changed the password and i needed to get in to it so i had a friend of mine do a master reset so that i could get in to it. But they didnt know that i had an icloud account already so they made a new account and downloaded stuff that they knew that i had on to my phone again along with some new stuff. i have been using it for a while now but i want to get the stuff that i had on it before it got eraced back on it. is there a way that i can get the stuff off of my old account on to my phone without having to erase what i have on it now?

iPhone 4, iOS 7.0.4

    If you want to merge the iCloud data from the other account with your current account, you can try saving any photo stream photos that you want to keep on your phone to the camera roll, then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, provide the password when prompted and choose Delete from My iPhone (your data will still be in iCloud).  Then sign into the old account to retrieve your data.  Once it's on your phone, save any photo stream photos from the old account that you want to keep to the camera roll, then go to Settings>iCloud, tap Delete Account, provide the password and choose Keep on My iPhone.  Then go to Settings>iCloud, sign into your new account again and choose Merge with iCloud.
