Hello Stacey140
You should not have an issues with removing accounts and messing with others users backup. As long as you are not removing the main account that is yours that you use for back up, everything will be fine.

  • HT4314 How do you delete other peoples hardware ie ipods from game center and then re run so they have their own identity

    Having major issues in trying to find out how to delete two ipods registered under my primary account and then re register so they have their own identity.
    Been on line, to Apple store and no success any help or ideas would be appreciated.

    I do not understand what you mean by remove hardware from GameCenter. What is is Game center are games associated with the Apple ID used for Game Center (Settings>GameCenter).
    What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

  • How do i keep my contacts if i delete my icloud account from my phone?

    i am trying to delete my icloud account from my phone but how do i keep my contacts? my broher is on the same icloud account how do i get his contacts off of my phone

    First, turn off using iCloud for your contacts. Go to:
    Settings --> Mail, Contacts, Calendars --> (your iCloud account)
    Switch "Contacts" to OFF.
    You should get a dialog box asking you if you want to keep the contacts on the phone or not -- choose the option to keep them.
    Now you can delete the iCloud account but retain the contact information.

  • How can I delete an icloud account from a phone that I bought from a friend that never deleted it

    How can I delete an icloud account from a phone that I bought from a friend that never deleted it and am not in touch with him so that's not an option

    You can't, your friend can. So get in touch. If you can't then the phone is useless.

  • HT201363 I need to delete an existing iCloud account that was set up on my phone using a previous Apple ID. Since the I've reset both my Apple ID and password (lost my iPad) I cannot delete the iCloud account from my phone because it is still under the ol

    I have an old iCloud account on my phone.
    This account was set up using an old Apple ID and password.
    Since then I've changed both id and password.
    In order to delete the existing (old) iCloud account from my phone I need to provide the old password from the old and defunct account.
    I don't remember that password.
    I've tried resetting it through the support network but to no avail.
    I need to delete the old account in order to set up a new one.
    Any thoughts?

    If the ID is yours but you don't know the password, you'll have to reset it (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5787).  If the ID belongs to a previous ownder of the phone, you'll have to either get the ID and password from them, or have them erase the phone and remove it from their account as explained here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4515.

  • What will happen if I delete my husband's iCloud account from my iPad?

    What will happen if I delete my husband's iCloud account from my iPad?

    You can delete the iCloud Account from your device but that doesn’t delete your account on iCloud.com. You can still use the user name and password you selected when signing up for iCloud to log in on the iCloud website.

  • How do I delete a student's iCloud account from a school iPad?

    My school has iPads that we check out to students. They are all set up with the school's Apple ID. I've had a student set up her iCloud account on one of the iPads using her OLD Apple ID and now can't remember the password to remove it. The only thing set up using the student's appleID is the iCloud account. Is there a way to remove the student's iCloud account from the iPad?
    The only things I'm allowed to select in the iCloud section of settings is the terms and conditions and the delete account. Everything else is unselectable. When i click "terms and conditions" I get the message: unable to connect to server. When I select "delete account" it wants the password that can't be remembered.
    Thanks for your help.

    If the student can't remember her Apple ID, she'll need to try to recover it, either by this web page:
    https://iforgot.apple.com
    or by calling Apple Support and asking to speak with Account Security. There's no way you can get past the Activation Lock without that student's Apple ID and password. If she can't recover the account and remove the iPad from her iCloud account, you may be able to contact Apple Support and with proof that the school owns the iPad there may be something Apple can do, though I've not confirmed that.

  • Can't delete old iCloud account from new phone

    Have trouble deleting old iCloud account from my new phone keep getting a message saying can not delete cause in use

    iCloud accounts can be deleted in Mail, Contacts and Calenders in System Preferences from the Apple sign menu on your Host or Main mac.
    I had heaps of trouble with this - i fixed it by going back to my host imac and clicked on apple sign - system preferences - then under the Internet and Wireless heading clicked on Mail, Contacts & Calenders.  from there you can select iCloud amongst your other stuff in the left window - delete the old one by hitting the (minus) - sign down the bottom after selecting iCloud.  Keep your calenders and contacts on your mac when asked.
    Once you've deleted the old one and its gone from the window reselect iCloud from the right window of options.  Use your new apple ID (current e-mail) to set this one up.
    Once you sync all your devices it should all be good.
    Took me ages to work this out but minutes to fix once I had.
    hope this helps

  • How to delete somebody else's iCloud Account from my iPad Air?

    Hi,
    Recently I have bought an iPad Air on a eBay-like site. There the seller said that the item was new but when I chacked the serial number, the device was  already  registered since January. Regardless ths I reset it, created an Apple ID for me and started registering the things under my name. When it came to iCloud, I have  found that all my data was been transferred to somebody else's iCloud account. I tried to delete this account to put mine, but for this it  requires the password of this other user.
    I have contacted the seller, who informed that in fact he didn't know about it because he only won it and decided to resell it, but promissed to investigate and try to resolve it, but in fact I guess I cant cound so much on it and I'm pretty dissapointed and  lost with this  situation. Do you  guys know what I could to remove this account?
    Thanks in advance!

    You will not be able to find the previous user in any Apple database. They wouldn't share that information with anyone as they would be violating privacy issues - unless of course they were directed to do so by a court order.
    There is just something that bothers me about this whole situation and I feel for you, but I would also hesitate to email somebody that I didn't know about asking him to erase his iCloud account. How the iPad could go from one owner to another owner and now to you, without being erased, just gives me a bad feeling, but that's just how I feel about it.
    I guess though at this point, you know worlds more about him than he knows about you if you have his name and email address.

  • If I delete an iCloud account from my iPhone will it delete all the pics saved

    iif I delete an iCloud account on my iPhone to use a different one will it delete all the pics save to it?

    Are you talking about your icloud backup?
    You should be importing your pics to your computer as you would a digital camera iOS: Import personal photos and videos from iOS devices to your computer  that way you won't lose any pictures in your camera roll.

  • If i have no friend and i want to play other people on gamecenter how do i find someone to play with?

    I just bought an Ipod touch and i downloaded game center.  I have no friends but I want to play with people around the world on NBA Jam and other games how do I get someone to play with me I dont see any buttons.

    Go to Settings>General>Usage. How much space does it show you have?
    If you connect your phone to your computer, what does iTunes say is on your phone? Do you see a large amount of "Other"? If so, you may have a corrupted database. You'll need to sync your phone then restore it as NEW (not from back up) then re-sync your data).

  • If I delete my iCloud account from my iPhone

    If I delete my iCloud account from my iPhone will it also delete the account online along with the data backed up?
    I just created a new id because I've been using my father's account all this time. Recently I've just updated to the new iOS and I still have doubts whether to change the icloud account or not. I'm worried all of my dad's back ups, contacts and other data be deleted.
    If it doesn't get deleted, can I still use the account in the future?
    (Currently using iPhone 4 with the iOS 7.0.3 update)

    Nope. Just the account & data on your phone.

    Yep, but Apple reserves the right to delete the data if the account is dormat for an extended period of time.

  • I want to delete my icloud-account from my iphone 5 and then register again, because I want to change my email-address/account name. What would be the steps to follow? How do I make sure I do not lose any information stored on/in my iphone 5?

    I want to delete my icloud-account from my iphone 5 and then register again, because I want to change my email-address/account name. What would be the steps to follow? How do I make sure I do not lose any information stored on/in my iphone 5?

    You would have to delete the existing iCloud account and create a wholly new one - you cannot change the @icloud.com email address of the one you already have.  To make a new one, you will also need an new AppleID as any AppleID can only have one iCloud account associated with it.
    Deleting the account will not delete anything off your device (if prompted for things like contacts, choose to keep them).  You will have to sync everything anew with the new account as you cannot move your sync'd content, your old backups or anything else from one iCloud account to another.  You will have to set up sync again and let it sync to the new account, and then make new backups to the new account as well.
