iMessage is registered to previous iphone owner

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.

Iphone owner's name - correction

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.

Proud new owner of iPhone 4

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 am taking over my wifes iPhone. What is the best way to rename the device and set it up with my appleID & itunes account?

Happy owner of iPhone 4 bumper

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.

Stupid Question For New Iphone Owner

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?
Thanks

i found an iPhone 3G S how do i find the owner

i have the serial number and everything, and i wanna return it to the owner because i know if i lost an iphone, id FLIP out. can i do anything to find out who it belongs to?
3G S Windows XP Pro detroit area

with iphone 4 serial numbers owner should be found

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.

HT4623 My iPhone 3 Gs was recently updated but refuses to activate Is there anything I can do to get it to activate

This phone hasnt been jail broken or anything of that sort. How would I go about getting it to activate?

New 3G owner with a few questions

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.

Hello I am an owner of a locked Sprint iPhone 5 who lives in Australia Has anybody else had this problem and resolved it

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.

Apple ID problem after changing of owner

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.
