    Hey guys, I'm at the iPhone 6 iCloud backup and i'm at the step wher eit says: Enter the Apple ID password for ____ to use for store purchases, etc.

    The thing is, the blank space ISN'T the Apple ID I used to sign into iCloud on this phone just a couple of steps back. It's some random-ass appleId. What the hell is going on?

    I had an issue where I couldn't back up restore from iPhone 5s using iTunes. When I tried using iCloud it asked me to also sign in using my dad's iCloud acct. I don't ever remember buying anything using his Apple id and wondered whether because I was on the same network in his house while doing it and also having his iMac that both of us have downloaded things from using our separate Apple IDs that was why. Still a mystery and I literally spent a day restoring from iCloud. Not fun with a shiny new toy #

    Sorry have no idea. Worth a call to Apple Care?
