    My father bought me my Ipad2 for Xmas. He decided to open it up and throw a few apps on using his ID. I have deleted and reinstalled apps to resolve this issue. For apps which are not removable, I cannot update. I prefer not to use his ID. How can I change these apps over to my ID. I believe this also causing me issues with face time and message apps.

    Thanks!

    You can't move apps from one iTunes account to another.

    The build in apps (that can not be removed) do not care about your Apple ID, nor do they update via the App Store. They only get updated when the OS is updated.

    As for your account, go to each of the stores (iTunes, App Store, iBook Store) scroll to the bottom of the first tab. You should see a button, probably with your Dad's Apple ID in it. Tap on the button to sign out. Tap on it again and sign into your own account. It has to be done separately in each store.

    You should also visit Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Accounts and Settings > iCloud to make sure nothing was set up there; and to set up your own accounts of course.

    Oh yes, the FaceTime and Messages apps get associated with an Apple ID in their settings too. Go there and sign out and back in with yours, pretty much the same way you did with the iStores.
