    Hey there, so my mom got the iPhone 3Gs and I updated it for her using my laptop to ios 5. She has her own apple id which when I go to the general settings she's signed in. However when I go to update the apps, the iTunes store has my iTunes account signed in on her phone. How am I able to change it to hers so she can update the apps using her apple id. Thanks!

    Because the apps where bought with your ID, they are linked to your account. To change them to her ID, she'll have to buy them again from the App Store with her ID.

    Oh that makes sense. So how would I be able to log out of my account out so she can redownload all the apps?

    She's already signed in there though but when I go to the app store I'm signed in and there's no way to sign out

    Yes, but she'll be charged for the ones you paid for.

    That's fine, she only has free apps I just don't know how to sign off my account on her phone and log her in. She's already signed in under the store settings but my apple id keeps popping up in the update part

    Because she's trying to update your apps installed with your Apple ID.
    She needs to delete your apps and download them again using her user ID.

    You have to first delete the app and redownload it.
