I have the same problem you report, Stephen. I have been assigned a previously used iPad for work, and after using the Reset for all settings, iMessage is still trying to use the old Apple ID. There is no way to change it, no option to Edit.
After searching online I've tried the following, all to no avail:
- Signing out of Store and signing back in.
- Using Reset to reset all settings.
- Typing the wrong password in repeatedly in hopes Apple gives me a chance to try something different (no luck after 8 tries).
I can't use the old email because it's not mine.

Ok, after redoing the Store and providing credit card info, I retried the "use the wrong password and hope" approach. Eventually Apple prompted me to provide new credentials, and I can now use iMessage.

Glad you got it working. I checked mine and was able to log in now. I also checked my iPhone and changed the receive as to my Apple ID. It would be great to have messages on all my devices. I'll see if this change helps to flip the switch to Apple's messages.

Ran into the same thing. After changing Apple ID, iMessage was stuck on trying to use the old one. Solution was non-sensical: Enter the wrong password several times, after which iOS eventually popped up a dialog allowing me to enter the new ID & password.
