How do I change an Apple ID just for one device, an iPod Touch?

Hello, all...I recently purchased my nephew (I'm his guardian and am raising him) a brand new iPod Touch for his 13th birthday.  I activated the device using my Apple ID (which I also use for my iMac, iPhone and Macbook Air).  I'm thinking now about changing his iPod over to a different Apple ID to keep my iCloud "pure" (for lack of a better word), with just my stuff on it, and because his iPod is mysteriously picking up text messages to me that are supposed to go to (and which still do go to) my iPhone. Is it possible to change the Apple ID for just that one device, the iPod and, if so, how does one do that?  I have several e-mail accounts/addresses that I could use instead of the one I use for my current Apple ID.  I'm technology-challenged in the worst way, so your help/advice is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

The ID is used in the following locations and you  have to change them.
Settings>Messages>Send and Receive
and Settings>iTunes and App store
You  have to sign out of ID (for iCloud you delete the iCloud account from the iPod) and sign in with other ID.
Note the following are resolved if you  use Family Sharing (iOS 8 and later):
- Apps are locked to the account that purchased them.
- To update apps you have to sign into the account that purchased the apps. If you have apps that need updating purchased from more than one account you have to update them one at a time until the remaining apps were purchased from one account.
If the iPod has iOS 7 or later then you have the enter the password for Apple ID presently sign in Settings>iCloud.
Also, a Restriction can be set (Settings>General>Restrictions) the prevents changing accounts

  • How do I change my Apple ID on only one device?

    How do I change my Apple ID on only one device? I inherited my husband's iPhone 5. He cleared it but I set it up with same Apple ID so we could share same iTunes account. However, I realised that there are inconveniences such as not being able to Facetime each other. In addition, his iTunes account is UK-based and we'd like to also have a New Zealand iTunes account for various reasons.

    Go to settings/icloud and sign out. Then sign in by creating a new Apple ID. Do the same in Settings for Messages, FaceTime and iTunes & App Store. Next, link your Apple IDs using Family Sharing so you can still share music and apps. Family Sharing - Apple Support

    How do I change my Apple ID/email for cloud?

    Most of the people on these public forums, including myself, are fellow users - you're not talking to iTunes Support here. I've asked the hosts to remove your email addresses from your post.
    If you updated your existing account then try logging out of it on the phone by tapping on the id in Settings > iTunes & App Stores and then log back in and see if that 'refreshes' the account on it.

  • How do I change the apple Id used for updating apps and downloading them

    I bought an iPad from someone and I changed the apple ID but for some reason when I try to update the apps the old apple ID comes up from the previous owner ...........I just need to know how I possibly can change it

    You cannot.  Purchases are permanently tied to the AppleID and its account used when making the purchase.  You cannot transfer purchases.
    The reality is you do not own the apps on that iPad - the previous owner does.  If you want them for yourself and want to be able to update them as needed, or re-download them as needed, you will have to delete the copies on the iPad, then purchase them with your own AppleID.

  • How to change a item property just for one record

    My Requirement is, when a new record is inserted i want item1 to be enabled(which is disabled by default) only for this new record. when I implement the following code, entire column is enabled intead of just for one record.
    The code I have written in WHEN-NEW-RECORD-INSTANCE trigger is
    app_item_property.set_property('block1.item1', ALTERABLE_PLUS, PROPERTY_ON);
    app_item_property.set_property('block1.item1', ENTERABLE, PROPERTY_ON);
    please help!

    The code I have written in WHEN-NEW-RECORD-INSTANCE trigger is
    app_item_property.set_property('block1.item1', ALTERABLE_PLUS, PROPERTY_ON);
    app_item_property.set_property('block1.item1', ENTERABLE, PROPERTY_ON);What is APP_ITEM_PROPERTY? This is not a Valid Oracle Forms Built-in. I don't see how your When-New-Record-Instance (WNRI) trigger will compile.
    To change the properties of a specific instance of an item you would use the Set_Item_Instance_Property built-in and then there are only a few properties you can change; which are: BORDER_BEVEL, INSERT_ALLOWED, NAVIGABLE, REQUIRED, UPDATE_ALLOWED and VISUAL_ATTRIBUTE. To make a specific instance of "ITEM1" Insertable and Updateable you would use the following:
    Set_Item_Instance_Property('YOUR_BLOCK.ITEM1', CURRENT_RECORD, UPDATE_ALLOWED, PROPERTY_TRUE);However, if you have set the ENABLED property of ITEM1 to NO in the Forms Builder, you will not be able to "Enable" the item using Set_Item_Instance_Property. You will need to make the item Enabled and set the INSERT/UPDATE properties to NO.
    Hope this helps,
    Craig B-)

  • How can I change my Apple ID only in one of my devices?

    Hello, I've got 2 iPhone, both connected to the same Apple ID. My question, as the title suggests, is: how can I change the Apple ID to one of these without losing the purchases made and without bothering the second iPhone which will remain with the old id? Is it possible?
    Thank you!

    Welcome to the Apple Community.
    Anything you do on one phone will not affect the other.
    All you need to do is log out of iTunes and then back in using your other account details, you will no longer be able to update apps purchased under the first account.
    If you change your iTunes account, you may not be able to change it back again for 90 days.

  • How do I sign out of iCloud just on one device? And will deleting my account on iCloud completely delete the account or just on this one device?

    I am sharing an iCloud account and I want to sign out of iCloud! But when I go to settings and my iCloud account the account name is ge
    Grey as If I can't change it.

    That means the Restriction is set that prevents changing accounts. Go to Settings>General>Restrictions and unset it so you can delete the account.
    Deleting the account for one device does not effect the account on other devices.

  • HT204053 my apple id is not working on my iPhone. how do i change my apple id on my other devices?

    My Apple ID is not working on my iphone and iclouds. how do i fit it?

    In order to change your Apple ID or password for your iCloud account on your iOS device, you need to delete the account from your iOS device first, then add it back using your updated details. (Settings > iCloud, scroll down and hit "Delete Account")
    Providing you are simply updating your existing details and not changing to another account, when you delete your account, all the data that is synced with iCloud will also be deleted from the device (but not from iCloud), but will be synced back to your device when you login again.

  • How do I change the authorization e-mail for a device?

    We're trying to download library books to my wife's new Color Nook.  We've downloaded the books to our computer via Adobe Digital Editions (ADE).  But, whenever we connect the Nook to our computer with a USB cable, ADE shows a prompt asking us to authorize the device using an old e-mail address, not the one my wife is using for her Nook.  Also, when I try to use the Library > Authorize Computer command, ADE says that we've authorized a device using the old e-mail address, not the one my wife is using.  How can I change the authorization e-mail address so that it recognizes her device???

    1.  I'm sure you must have tried signing in to Adobe and changing email address in your profile.  Don't know if they retrofit.
    2.   I can't account for what just happened.  Last night I took screen shots of all the various manifestations of my problem, including messages that the book both could and could NOT be copied.  For the umpteenth time I reopened the original booksale into ADE and tried to drag to Nook--got the usual red X's.   This morning the icon miraculously allowed itself to be dragged into the nook. Green all the way--nothing had been changed.  Elves in the night?  Then I opened Nook--no book! But there it was in Documents.  No, it wasn't there all this time.  I knew to look there because of other threads.  I also remember someone else had a problem that sorted itself out after leaving the Nook attached to computer for a long time. 
    So thanks for all the suggestions.  What I take away from all this is that the Nook works well with B&N but using ADE for EPUB books is clumsy and tedious. Or possibly it is just slow.   If I had wanted only books in English I could have gotten the Kindle, but with Nook I expected to gain access to Dutch books.  It had worked before, but this time, perhaps with this seller, I spent hours spread over 3 days to sort it out and I still don't know how to avoid this the next time. 

  • How do I change my apply id?  the one on my ipod is different from my ipad and wont let me adjust

    My apple ID is different from my ipod to ipad. When I try to enter my password, it says it is not valid even though I have changed and apple confirmed it is reset. Seems like a continuous loop.

    I did that but when I go into Settings - iCloud - to turn off the Find my IPhone option, it still asks for the old email address password.  Any ideas?

  • TS1398 We a trying to start a apple ID acc for my daughters new IPod touch. I have a apple ID acc with mt Iphone. It wont let us use the same email address, but wont let us use a fake one either. What do we do?

    we are trying to open a apple ID acc for my daughters IPod touch.I have a apple ID acc with my IPhone. It wont let us us use the same email ( she doesnt have one) but wont let us us a fake one. What do we do?

    The only way to get an apple ID is to have an email account you've never used before. The only thing you can do is make her an email.
