Hen I first got my iPad hubby started to set it up and put his email address in the apple ID of the store, I tried o edit it and put my e-mail address, but it tells me that my email is already registered, which I know but how do I change hubby's to mine so when I buy something it goes to my email not his....

When I try to change the email address it won't let me..
I go into settings > store> a screen comes up and there is the box with apple ID in the box it has hubby's email address, when I try to change it to my email address an password it won't allow me, it keeps coming up this I'd is already registered.....

What happens when I buy something in the store, it sends an email to hubby's email address that is showing in the apple I'd in the store but I need it to come to my email address how do I get my email address into that box....all other emails come to my email address, except when I purchase something in my store, the notification goes to hubby's email address...

I tried that and it sent me an email to reset the password not the email ID thing.
