I have an iPhone 3G. I've changed my Apple ID and password because of a problem that I was having with downloading/upgrading apps. However, whenever I try to download/upgrade apps, I cannot do it because the old Apple ID automatically shows up on it and I still cannot download/upgrade my apps, nor can I perform any other needed changes on my phone. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

If you used the "old" Apple id to purchase the apps you are trying to download/upgrade, then you have to use that id to do the download/upgrade. They are tied to that Apple id and you cannot simply use another one. Have you contacted Apple about the "problem" you were having with that Apple id?


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

Thank you. I have tried to contact Apple app support. I haven't received a reply as of yet. After I sent the thread, I discovered that I can download new apps. I just can't upgrade the old ones. I am awaiting their response. It seems there is something that they can do.
