    Hi Everyone. I can change my apple id on the web, no problem. I can sign out and put in the new one on my phone, no problem. I even managed to cure the problem of the old id popping up on my Iphone 4, although I cannot remember how. The real problem started when I then bought an Iphone 5 and connected it to my macbook and moved the contents of my Iphone 4 backup onto it.

    NOW the old apple id keeps popping up again, even when I start my email, which should have little to do with my account. Connecting to my photos in Icloud as well seems to be a problem as that was created under the old apple id. I cannot obviously connect to the old apple id any longer to delete it or anything.

    Can you sign in to your other Apple ID on iTunes on the computer? You can view previous purchases from there in the "View Account" section. Maybe you have a lingering app.

    Also, it sounds like you have 2 IDs/Accounts, since you can't delete/close accounts with apple. Not once they have been used to purchase.
