Hi, and thank you for asking your question. Just to clarify, when you power off and reboot the iPhone, does it show up the same login prompt this time? If so, are you able to cancel that prompt (after doing a reboot)? Please reply back to me below. Thank you.
Expert:  Barun replied 1 year ago.
You are getting these repeated prompts because some (or all) of your phone's apps were installed using the old ID itself. To work around this issue, you will need to delete these apps, and then sign in to your new ID and re-install the apps once again. Alternatively, we may carry out a factory restore of the iPhone itself. Do keep me posted. Thank you.

Yes but how do I change from the old ID to my new one for it to be recognised ???
Expert:  Barun replied 1 year ago.
OK; now, on the iPhone, please tap Settings > iTunes and App Store. Tap on the old ID listed, and then tap "Sign out". Next, sign in to your new ID on the same screen. Does this work for you? Do let me know. Thank you.
Expert:  Barun replied 1 year ago.
Also, since you are looking to start over with the new ID on the iPhone, I'd suggest carrying out a factory reset of the iPhone itself. If you have iCloud set up for the new ID, your data, e.g. contacts, calendars, etc., will be ported over automatically when you set up the new ID after the factory reset. Do let me know what you think, please. Thank you.

Will my photos be there as well or should I save to computer ??
Expert:  Barun replied 1 year ago.
It will be a good idea to save the photos (and other stuff) to your system first, just in case they are not already backed up by iCloud. Just to clarify, were you able to sign out and sign back in to your new ID, as directed earlier? Keep me posted.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes I am positive the new ID was accepted etc. it's just that I can't get rid of that box can't do anything with the other apps because of it reoccurring so repeatedly.
Will see what happens tomorrow when I have more time and will get back to you. Thanks again
Expert:  Barun replied 1 year ago.
I see, all right. It's great that you were able to get the ID changed, so we don't need to carry out a factory reset itself. Now, you just need to tap and HOLD down an app, and tap 'X' to delete it - do this for all other apps you are getting the old ID prompt with. Finally, you may just reinstall the apps from the App Store (using the new ID itself.) This should get rid of the recurring prompts as well.

Hi there
Should I have I tunes on or not ??
Expert:  Johnny Mack replied 1 year ago.
Yes we will need itunes to be opened on your mac or pc computer.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have done all that you have said and the phone has reset but when starting it says that the apple I D is the old one and that is locked on that as I don't have any idea to what the password ***** ***** and the e-mail address which I would have to use for a renewal of password ***** ***** nil & void as I lost that address when I changed from tiscali to BT
Expert:  Johnny Mack replied 1 year ago.
Try this log in with your apple id on your computer under "manage you apple id"copy the link below and select manage id.https://appleid.apple.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/MyAppleId.woa/109/wa/directToSignIn ?wosid=kJfXByJtbbWm6x946TXx4w&localang=en_US. When your logged in click at "edit" after "Apple ID and primary email address". Change your email address .When you have changed your email address you will receive a confirmation email to the your new email address, click on the link "confirm now" in the email. After this step, log out from your account and then log in again to make sure that i works. Next step is to go to www.icloud.com, and try your new account there as well, if it works you can log out.If everything works this far it's a good sign. . After this step enter your apple id och password ***** your iphone and see if it works.
