    I have a used iPhone 4 I bought off of amazon not too long ago.
    Its been working fine for a couple weeks. Then I jailbroke for another couple weeks. Now I restored because I was having some network errors and I figured it was the phone being jailbroken and what not. So now that its restored, I'm getting the regular pop-up to restore via iCloud so I need to enter my Apple ID, however an unknown email address is already in the email address bar waiting for me to enter the password, so each time I have to delete and enter MY apple ID.
    ??
    It wasn't like this before the jailbreak. Any advice? This is about the 3rd time the phone has been restored since getting it from Amazon, how can it still have (i'm assuming) a past users info??

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I restored from iCloud about 2 weeks ago when I unjailbroke. I had about 3-4 random email addresses pop up asking for passwords. I simply just hit cancel and it went to the next one without any problem but this was very odd. I am the original owner of the phone as well.

    Have you downloaded music off the Internet? Aka illegally such as torrents? This is the only thing I can link it too. Because some of the albums that are downloaded are iTunes rips that people bought and uploaded through their Id and maybe the account got tied into it. Not sure

    Bingo.
    That's the prob.
    Any MP3 or ringtone, video or such things downloaded from the internet and used on your itunes library can cause that.

    Yep! I had it happen with an ebook file a friend sent me, that I'd imported into iTunes. I deleted it, bought my own copy and problem solved.
