how activate iphone if still the previous owner apple id
I change my apple id because i forget my password to my previous apple id but everytime i update my app store my previous apple id still existing even i have new apple id already
I inherited my IPhone from my girlfriend after she upgraded. Ive managed to change it to be linked to my apple ID rather than hers. I encountered a problem when wanting to use/upgrade some apps that it asked for the password for her apple ID and password rather than mine, which i remidied by just deleting and reinastalling the various apps. iMessage was always turned on on the is phone, but it was acting up so I turned it off and when turning it back on again it asks for her Apple ID and password, not mine. Is there anyway to change the account? Thanks.
Hi, first time poster, so be gentle if I screw up the location of the topic and things like that.
Here is the deal, I had a 3Gs for a year, then as iPhone4 got out I upgraded and gave the 3Gs away.
However, even after a complete reinstall and format and all that shiz, the 3Gs still remember, and demand to use, my AppleId for purchases.
The new owner have typed in her mail, her password, in all parts where we can physically enter it; like the settings>store. Even via iTunes and such.
So, in the settings>store menu, her details are listed (logged out and back in like 20 times), but once a purchase is made, free or otherwise, my mail pops up and it demands my password (we tried with hers)
So, in short.
How can I make my old phone forget my AppleId and accept someone elses.

I am trying to activate imessage on my phone.
I was having some trouble with it so I turned it off but when I tried to activate it it started insisting that my Apple ID/Username is incorrect.
What is strange is that the my phone accepts the apple id/password combo and so does my apple id account online when i login...the issue is that the imessage software refuses it for some reason.
Appreciate your help.
I cannot activate my phone. it comes with this error: incorect Apple ID o....hotmail.com cannot be used to unlock this Iphone. Can anyone help please?
I cant activate my Iphone, which is purchased second-hand, with my Apple ID. The owner has deleted his account and has reset the phone. What should I do?
i just got the unlocked service by apple, but now i cant activate my phone, what can i do about it?
dont have anymore the original sim...
The name on my Iphone is misspelled. How can I correct it? There seems to be no obvious way in either the phone or in Itunes. Thank you.

I am taking over my wifes iPhone. What is the best way to rename the device and set it up with my appleID & itunes account?
Should I do a restore or is there something better?
Macbook 2.4, MacBook Pro 13.3" 2.26, Mac mini 2.2.6, iPhone 3Gs Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Stood in line at 6:45 at the Monterey AT&T store, waited until 9:00am,
walked out at 9:15 with a 16GB iPhone 4.
Not too bad a wait. Canceled my Apple store July 14 ship date order!
So far, so good. Restored from my 3GS backup and everything looks and
works great so far. Facetime is really sweet! Now if everyone I talked to
had the IP4, Id never use Skype again!
The retina display is quite a change from the 3GS screen, and is my favorite part of this phone.
Pics and videos from iTunes look fantastic now...so crisp and clear.
Ill hang on to the 3GS for a couple weeks just to make sure the IP4 works
everywhere I go (I cover a large part of NorCal for work).
Happy camper here!

I know we shouldnt have to buy one to make our phone function like a phone, but I really liked the look of it so thought I would give it a go.
Granted, £25 is a lot of money for a silly rubber band, but not only has it resolved my reception issue, but it makes the phone feel more secure, but I can also put it down without fear of smashing the back.
I do not regret the decision to buy one.
Hopefully the software fix resolves the issues for others, but I will continue to use my bumper.

Hi, so this is a little weird..
I just recently got an Iphone 3GS. When I take pictures with the phone upright, my pictures come out vertical instead of horizontal. To take a photo horizontal, the phone has to be on its side.
Is this right? Or am I doing something wrong? Can I fix it?
So I need a new iPhone 3G SIM card to activate my iPhone. I hear you can get one free at Apple Retail Stores. Is this true? If not, can someone please tell me how I can get one? I need it for 3G not 3Gs. Please? Im desperate..
With the Iphone 4-5-6 product serial number and I-tunes, I-cloud previous owner could be found by Apple or Apple could notify them about an inquire from a phone number given to them. I am sure this can be accomplished as under the Patriot Act.
my friend recently gave me an iPhone. and when I tried to reset it, it still needed his apple Id and password. But, his dad made them and for got the information and security questions. And I have no working sim for it yet because its an at&t phone but I use T-Mobile, so I need the information to activate it.
i have recently updated my iphone 3gs to the latest firmware 5.0.1 and the iphone fails to get past the activation process even itunes wont regonise the sim card i have tryed an 02 orange virgin vodofone t mobile and 3 sim cards none of them work the phone will not activate i have looked on various forums and have been told i will after put modified software on my iphone but i dont wont to do that is there a way of fixing this or are apple going to leave us 3gs customers in the dark

This phone hasnt been jail broken or anything of that sort. How would I go about getting it to activate?
1. I have push email set up with Yahoo and it seems to work fine except when the phone sleeps after the minute I have set up. Should I hear the alert when a new email is received when in sleep mode? I have it set to every 15 minutes.
2. When Im using Safari, is there a way to get back to my home screen as I can do on my computer?
3. The sounds I have set when using my keypad stopped working for some reason. I had to restart the phone and then it worked. Is this a known problem?
4. I periodically have to press the home button at the bottom of the phone with a lot of pressure before it works. Will this effect it or is this part of the phone durable?
I will probably have more questions but these are the ones that come to mind. So far, Im pleased with the phone and am not experiencing some of the more serious issues of others in the discussions.

i cant activat my iphone it is asking me to verify the phone number but it is not my number the number belongs to some one in florida dont no y they never owned the phone what can i do
Hello, so about 16 months ago I bought an iPhone 5 from Ebay. The seller had told me that the iPhone was unlocked and ready to use. When i received the phone in the mail I discovered that the iPhone was locked to sprint and therefore was unable to be used in Australia. Ever since then I have been trying many different methods of unlokcing my phone such as jailbreaking, gpp sims, ringing Sprint and apple but none of these methods have worked. For example, each time I ring Apple they tell me I must contact Sprint and have them unlock my iPhone, but when I ring Sprint they tell me I must ring Apple and they should just be able to unlock my phone straight away. (I have no contact with the previous owner as they de-activated their EBAY account)
Has anyone had this problem before? If so how did you unlock your iPhone? Does anyone know of any cheap/free online sites that will unlock my iPhone?
Any suggestions and/or help would be very much appreciated.
