Hi again Peter, The problem i am encountering is that a person who was housesitting for me went into my computer and did something and now, when i tried to register my computer, I couldn't because the apple ID shows up always tied to his email address. Then, when i synchronized my iphone with my computer, his email address comes up and prevents me buying apps or registering the phone in my name. I don't know how to wipe out this information from my computer (a Macbook) or from my G4 iphone. Untill i can do this, i can't use my iphone correctly and, as this person is (i've since found out) a convicted criminal (he is a confidence trickster), I am very worried that he could even be hacking into my computer from a distance.
