I had a recent issue with a corrupted video file (posted about it in another thread) and it led me to wipe the phone and restore from the iCloud backup from the previous day. This is when the annoyances began. As soon as iOS5 started downloading and installing my apps, it prompted me for 5 different Apple IDs and passwords. Three were coworkers, one was a friend from NYC I haven't seen in two years, and the other I just... don't recognize at all, though it's probably somebody that I know. At first I just canceled the prompts, but it's clear that they are not going away. They pop up like every 5 or 10 minutes. They stop whatever I'm doing on my phone and demand my attention and they're extremely annoying. I went to the genius bar and the "genius" told me that I obviously have other people's apps/music/books on my phone. I'm fairly computer savvy and I'm certain that I've never logged into iTunes using anybody's account but my own and I've certainly never let anybody use my phone under THEIR account to download apps or music. The ONLY possible scenario I could come up with is that my computer at work is authorized to play music multiple accounts that my laptop may not share. Maybe there is music in the system from an account that the laptop is not authorized to play and because of iCloud has migrated to all my devices? The "genius" had two possible plans: Either start deleting my apps or music one by one to see which files were causing my phone to prompt for the appropriate apple ID OR Wipe my phone clean and ADD the apps and music one by one. Either way, those are the ********* options I've ever heard. I'm especially angry that I've never once had any sort of authorization problem since day one of being a iPhone first gen owner, I've played by the paranoid DRM rules that Apple has applied to all of its media and software like a vice grip, and the "genius" suggests that I've been trying to share apps and music with my five closest friends. "What are the chances that, oh, I don't know, this isn't a problem with me at all, but it's a mistake of some sort on Apple's end?" "That's unlikely, sir. The only reason your phone would ask for this information is if you had apps and music that correspond with those accounts." "Why doesn't it just... automatically detect and delete them?" "That's not how it works." "Is there an easy way to see which apps and music correspond to which account?" "You can see which account purchased music in iTunes on your computer, but no, not through your phone." I'm now at a loss. I guess I'm just going to wipe my phone clean, start with absolutely nothing on my phone and cautiously add my 300+ apps one by one. So pissed. Any ideas would be a huge help.
