    Hi. My friend upgraded my iPhone to 2.1 using his Mac. Unfortunately it is asking for his iTunes password when accessing the iStore on the phone. Is there an easy way to fix this?

    As I'm a PC user and iTunes doesn't work properly (Blue Screen Of Death when using iTunes 8 on WinXP), syncing with iTunes is out of the question.
    iTunes has never worked properly for me actually, but v8 is flatly horrific.

    1. It's not called the iStore. It's the App Store

    2. It's normal, happens to me too.

    Ams.

    1) Sorry; App Store ;)
    2) What is normal; iTunes crashing, the iPhone not recognised through USB, charging through mains...?

    It's normal that the App Store asks you for your iTunes password in 2.1

    I'm sure apple will fix that problem in iTunes 8.1 for Windows.

    Thanks for that. I understand that the AppStore asks for the password, it did that with my previous firmware.

    My question is; how do I change it from asking for my friend's AppStore password to asking for MY AppStore password?


    Thanks.

    The only way would be to plug it into a computer (shouldn't matter which), and switch the accounts while the iPhone is recognised.

    Thanks, I'll see if I can do it on a friends Mac or something.
    Because both WinXP PC's I have will not even run iTunes without crashing.

    iTunes has never worked properly for me (mostly with the processor going 100% when trying to exit the program). Its the worst piece of software since Lotus Notes.
