Step 1

Go to Apple's website at www.apple.com.

Step 2

Click on the iTunes "Store" which is along the top horizontal menu.

Step 3

Go to "Account" in the top right portion of the page and log yourself out of iTunes.

Step 4

Float your mouse over the "Account" button at the top right portion of the screen and click on "Account Information".

Step 5

Click on the "New Account" button to create a new Apple ID account with the information you want to use with your iPhone and iTunes.

Step 6

Connect the iPhone USB (this came with your phone) from your phone to your computer and sync your iPhone with the computer.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you were unable to change the iTunes account on your iPhone, go to the iTunes store and download a free app with your new account ID. After the app has finished downloading, sync your iPhone again and delete the app.
