Hello,

That's my situation. I bought an iPad from a friend and he came with his Apple ID. When I download applications from the App Store, I changed his Apple ID to my Apple ID. But when I'll update he returns a different ID than I signed up. How can I change this "update ID" to my ID?

Thank's.

iOS 4.2.3

(Sorry by the english, I hope you can understand) Brasil! ;D

You'll have to delete all the apps that were on the iPad when your friend sold it to you. Then, you'll have to re-download all those apps (if you wish), which means you'll have to re-buy the ones that cost money. The ones your friend bought with his ID will always be linked to his ID. The only way around it is to uninstall them and start fresh.

Apps don't go with an iPad on a sale, unless it's the default ones that Apple includes with every iPad.

I try do this. But it doesn't work. The app is the Dropbox. I'll need delete him, and after download all files again.

Anyone suggest?

Thank's anyway.
