    After changing my email address used on App Store, it's still using the old email when trying to download updates. I have made sure it's logged on to the new address in Settings --> Store, but still it insists on using the old address when buying software.

    Is this a bug in iOS 4? How to get around this one? :confused:

    No tips on how to "reset" the phone so I can download apps from App Store? It's stuck with the old username :(

    Why don't you try changing your email address in your iTunes Store settings in iTunes on the computer that syncs with your iPhone, then syncing your iPhone. It should change it to the new email.

    I did that, but somehow the change of email address doesn't work for those apps bought with the old email. When downloading NEW apps, it works - but when updating older apps it still asks for my old email.

    Oh well. I guess I have to buy some apps once more, but it's no big deal since most of them are cheap.
