Hi everyone,I have just bought a 3g iPhone(PAYG).I am the second owner and I'm having difficulties.I have synced the phone with iTunes on my laptop and it comes up as "Micks phone" (the previous owner).I have loaded my pictures and songs and that went fine.I then tried to purchase some applications from iTunes store and it took my money (not a lot)and will not download to my phone saying download to Micks phone is not authorised on this computer.How do I change to my name? Will it involve removing iTunes from my laptop and re-loading it(will this work?).Will it loose my loaded pics and tunes? Very frustrating for an old codger like me.Can anyone give me som tips? Regards ,Rocket.

Welcome to EiC. Since you've already synced and it didn't change his info to yours, I would say you'd have to Restore and then set it up as a new phone.
