I purchased refurbished and it has a apple id that is not mine, how do I change to my account

I purchased a refurbished ipod touch for my son, it looks great and is working however, when trying to go to app store, the device still has a apple ID that is not mine. HOw can I delete this and add to my account. My son had a touch and it got wet and ruined. We were hoping to download from itunes that we already have downloaded

You should be able to do it through Itunes.

  • My girlfriend has my old iphone 4 and still has my Apple ID on the phone. How do I change it to her Apple ID?

    I have given my girlfriend my old iPhone 4 but she still has my Apple ID on there. She is able to see what apps I've downloaded and it asks for my password and user name when she tried to install something on there. I want it so she has her own on there and is able to access her own app store etc without having mine on there. She was also getting texts through on it that my cousin was sending to me on my existing iPhone 5?
    Does anyone know how to change this? Or what the text issue could be?

    Follow this to allow her to start from scratch as if a new iPhone with her own Apple id

    Please show me how to access my iphone that i was given and I cannot find the original apple id

    If you mean that it has locked to an somebody else's account in Settings > iCloud then it has activation lock on it : http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4515
    You will need to contact the owner of that account and ask them to remove the phone from their account - only the owner of the account can remove a device from it.

    When i try to update my apps from the app store some of the apps wont update and ask for an Apple ID that isn't mine. Whats the problem and how do i fix it? All im trying to do is update my apps and its asking for these random apple ID's.

    The apps were purchased by another user with a different Apple ID. You will have to erase them and repurchase them using your Apple ID.

    Trying to update an app from appstore list,but requests a pass for an apple id that is not mine! how can it be?

    The app must have been downloaded by somebody else that used their Apple ID on your iPad, since purchases are always tied to the ID that was used to make the purchase. Unless your iPad is glued to your side 24 hours a day and nobody has ever used the iPad but you, then anybody that has ever used your iPad could have done it.

  • A app on my apple acct that is not mine & I can not get rid of it

    a app on my apple acct that is not mine & I can not get rid of it

    As you didn't answer the question we have to assume that someone else loaded that app onto your machine.   If that is the case they will have to tell you what ID details they used to do that.   By using those same details you can update it if necessary.
    But it would appear you want to be rid of it and while you can remove the app itself from your machine by deleting it, you can't remove its trace from your purchase records.   I believe that would apply even if you edited your appleID and chose another one.   Future downloads could be made and updates accessed by the new account but the old records would remain.  

  • Keeps asking for apple Id that is not mine

    I reset my iPad and now it keeps asking for apple ida that are not mine.  How can i get it to stop?

    Does that id show on the right-hand side of Settings > Store or does yours show ? If the wrong one shows then logout of it by tapping on it and then log in with your .
    Do you recognise the id that is being shown - is it one that you've previously used (in which case any apps that you bought/downloaded with it can only be re-downloaded or updated via it) or is it a friend's id ( have you ever connected to somebody else's computer/iTunes)

    When I try to sync my ipod it comes up with a different apple id that is not mine.

    You don't need to have your iPod plugged in to access your iTunes library?
    I'm not really sure what it is you are trying to do. :S
    So you plug your iPod in and open iTunes and are prompted for a username and password for an Apple ID that is not yours?  If so, what does this prompt say exactly?

  • TS4036 My wife and I have iPhones that backup to iCloud I upgraded my iPhone to iPhone 5 when I see stored from iCloud it restored all of my wife's phone data not mine how do I change it

    My wife and I have iPhones that backup to iCloud I upgraded my iPhone to iPhone 5 when I see stored from iCloud it restored all of my wife's phone data not mine how do I change it

    You need to restore from your backup and not your wife's. You need to check if your backup is under the same or different apple id. If Id is the same you need to erase phone and find correct backup to restore from. If different you just need to use it at restore time.

  • HT201363 Change apple id that is not mine on iMac

    When prompted to update my apps on my iMac, it auto generates an apple id that is not mine and I am unable to change it.  An email address that is not mine is in the sign-in field and is grayed out so I can't make any changes.

    Then it is not backed up.
    Get an external drive, turn Time Machine on and let it complete a backup.

  • Asked to enter password for Apple ID that is not mine

    I am trying to update my apps. I just upgraded from a 4s to a 5s, and am reinstalling my apps. However, when I hit update, my phone asks me to enter a password for an Apple ID that is not my own. Under settings in iCloud, it says the account is my own, yet every time I attempt to update, I am asked for the password to a different apple account. I literally got the phone just about 30 minutes ago. Does anyone know what may be wrong and what I can do?

    Presumably this is a second-hand phone? The previous owner has from the sound of it set 'Activation Lock', an anti-theft precaution. He should have removed it before selling it.
    If a second-hand iOS device has been 'Activation locked' then only the previous owner can unlock it, either by providing you with the account ID and password, or by removing it from his list of devices  - please see http://support.apple.com/kb/ts4515
    If you are unable to contact him to do this then I'm afraid you will not be able to use the device - there is no other way of unlocking it at all. Apple cannot unlock it for you.
    You should if possible return it to wherever you bought it and ask for a refund as in this event the device is completely useless.
    If in fact it's a new phone then it shouldn't be possible for this problem to arise and again you will have to take it back to wherever you bought it from.

  • My iPhone asks me to sign into apple id's that are not mine- how do I stop this?

    My iPhone asks me often to put in a password for apple id's that are not mine. Some of the ones that pop up are for people that I don't even know. Why does this happen and how do I stop it? Thanks!

    Hi Friend,
    You must have all apps downloaded by your Apple ID, otherwise you will still facing this problem. Delete the apps you did not download by yourself and download them again. I will fix your problem.
    By the way, your device is configurate with your Apple ID? Check it in: Settings>>iTunes Store and App Store
    Hope it will be helpful

  • 4s asking password for apple id that is not mine

    Hi,
    Just bought a 4S last night.  Everything is working fine except for one thing.  The iPhone constantly asks me to put in the password for an apple id that I have never had any association with.  I hit cancel, but it just keeps popping up.  I have tried erasing that id and typing my id and password in, but it still keeps popping back up.  How do I get rid of it. 

    Was any of your content (music, movies, apps, etc) purchased with another Apple Store account ID?  Is this the same as the one that keeps popping up?
    If you know the ID:
    in iTunes on your computer, sign out of your regular account.  Sign in with the other account (the one that keeps coming up), and Authorize that computer to that account.
    Sign out of that account, and sign back in with your usual account.
    That may take care of it after your next sync with your iPhone.
    (Basically, your phone was synced with Account A, but some of your apps/media were purchased for Account B.  We want to tell your computer that this account and its media are OK.)
