Changing Apple ID in iTunes on an iPhone

  Davy 43 14:57 18 Jan 10

My son has an original iPhone & we need to change his Apple ID, but when he loads up iTunes on the iPhone the old ID pops up & asks for password.
The ID was changed on the pc no problem (from an old Wanadoo email address to our current BT one).

The option to type in new ID is their, but having done all this & resetting password - the old ID pops up again. I can't imagine that you have to reload iTunes again surely? Tried synching with pc to update Apple ID to no effect, something we're not doing right?

Had no joy with Apple, unless I want to pay $30 for help.

Thanks in Advance.

Not sure with phone but with iPods I only use plastic pay as you go cards. I have two accounts in i Tunes. Iif you visit the i tunes store, an account appears, and I can change the account to suit the two users on my PC. Do you pay as you go? If so when you next cash in a voucher simply supply a new ID and password.

Use a combination of PAYG & credit cards, just can't understand why iPhone won't accept different ID, as my son only uses one iTunes account.
