Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to change the apple ID associated with my iphone. The phone was initially a gift that my ex registered with her account info. Now, I can't update apps without it asking for that particular password and using her account information. I believe she has an iphone now with the same apple ID, so I don't want to screw around with anything. I tried to associate the iphone with my own information in My Account, by registering the serial number of the iphone, but it does not appear to have switched to my account info. Any insight would be great!

Thanks.

iMac, iOS 4

Go to Settings/Store and log out. Then log in with a different Apple ID.

So simple yet so hard to find!  Thanks Lawrence!  I was dreading a restore.
