    So I went to transfer purchases from my iPhone today, and something weird came up.

    Screen shot 2010-08-03 at 8.42.21 PM.png

    iTunes is automatically putting in this guy's email address into the Apple ID field.

    I don't know who this guy is, but I'm sure he's not happy about his email just floating around in random people's iTunes accounts.

    So why would this be happening? My whole library is empty at the moment since I'm waiting on the optibay converter to deliver. My iPhone has never been with anyone else. I don't have anybody in my phone as the email address. My address book on OSX is empty as well except with my contact, and it has my email address in it.

    I did jailbreak my iPhone yesterday if that has anything to do with it.

    Did you pirate some of your music from somewhere? The guy probably tried to share his file through one of the many file sharing methods, and when you got it you couldn't open it in your iTunes library and so you "deleted" it off of the iTunes screen, but not in the location where it was held in iTunes. So when you transferred the library, the file was still there.

    Edit: Nevermind I read that completely wrong I need to go to bed.

    By the way, you might want to edit your name out.

    Haha... yea, go to bed. Transferring Purchases only... that's all that's on my laptop right now.

    Eh... my name is in my username... I really don't care.

    I'm sure he is even more happy about you posting his email online in a forum :mad:

    You're obviously using pirated music/apps.

    Find what on a bus? The iPhone? The Laptop? The Email address?

    I'm sure OP would have mentioned something like that.

    I bought the iPhone from AT&T. Pre-ordered it on what, June 14th?

    I've had my MacBook Pro since it was new straight from Apple, plus just installed OSX on SSD days ago. It's still clean as a whistle.

    No pirated apps. Everything is purchased, free, or free from Cydia.

    The Cydia apps include trials of SBsettings, LockInfo, My3G, MiFi, and Strength.

    Nothing stolen. All installed on a trial basis.

    Also, just tried transferring purchases on Windows 7. The guy's email also comes up there, so it's coming from my phone.

    I think I will send the guy an email.

    I emailed the guy, and already received a response.

    He's not an App developr, nor does he own an iPhone. He's as clueless as me.

    Did you log into your iTunes account yet? Then did it save your ID rather than his? Have you asked Apple how it got there? I would think that something is not good here. Any new, unathorized purchases on your account? Good luck.

    Haven't spoken with Apple yet. I'll try to check my account.

    EDIT: Account looks fine.
