So I've been having an apple account before I got my first and only iphone. But I plugged in my friend's device first into my account and the account read it as the owner device of the ID. Two days later, I plugged in my device and read it as a second device in the accound and therefore, my device is just "borrowing" the ID and it set a time limit to use it. But it needs to be the other way around. The first device is not mine and I want it out, and I want the second device in as the owner of the apple account.

What do I do?

I've already removed the first device,but it still has a time restriction on the second device. THE SECOND DEVICE IS MY DEVICE AND ITS MY ACCOUNT!

    No idea what you are talking about.

     

    Time restriction?

     

    First device? 

     

    Second device?

     

    Please explain.

     

    None of this makes sense to me.


    Sorry

    so when i got my apple account, I still didn't have a device yet

    I just bought music with a gift card I recieved

    but I did plan on buying an iphone later

    Well, my friend got one before me and asked if she could purchase itunes music using my account

    I agreed and I plugged in her iphone into my account

    Well, since its the first device into the account, I guess the account read it as the "owner" device of the account.

    So, two days later, I got my iphone and plugged it into my account to start downloading the purchased music.

    Apparently, the account read it as the second device and thought that it was "borrowing" the account since it was the second device

    So it set an 80 day time limit for my device (the second on the account) to use

    So i removed the first device (my friend's ipod)

    but it still had a time limit on my device,even if its the only one on the account now

    I want my device to not have a time limit because its my device on my account

    what do I do???

    "Well, since its the first device into the account, I guess the account read it as the "owner" device of the account."

     

    There is no such thing as "owner" device at all.

     

    "Apparently, the account read it as the second device and thought that it was "borrowing" the account since it was the second device"

     

    There is no such thing as "borrowing" the account.  You can use your account from ANY device/computer that has itunes.

     

    You seem to completely misunderstand the way it works.

     

    There is no time limit.  You are confucing your account with associated devices:

     

    iTunes Store: Associating a device or computer to your Apple ID

     

    If you want to buy music from your iphone, simply go to Settings and sign into your account.

     

    The musci your friend bought using your account belongs to you and it is not legal from your friend to use.
