    Default how do i remove a device from my itunes?

    i sold my old iphone to a friend and let him use my apple id to buy apps etc. i now dont want him using it as i dont speak to him. I found out i need to go to itunes account settings and under the new "itunes in the cloud" section to click on manage my devices but that option is not there. i have found many threads who also complain there is no "manage devices" option under the itunes in the cloud section so whats going wrong? cheers

    Dean, here is a link that explains exactly what you need to do to remove one of your devices from iTunes: iTunes Store: Associating a device or computer to your Apple ID


    Hope this helps.

    You can't really remove it and stop him using the device totally. Just remove access to your iTunes account. To do that you can change your password or go to the iTunes account settings and remove the device from your account. Although if he knows your password he can put it back so you really need to change your iTunes password.

    Go into account settings in iTunes and you'll see a link for associated devices.

    Hey amygarcia23...if the music is not purchased from iTunes you can not copy it from the old phone to the new phone, only purchased items will transfer and sync. If the music was imported from cd or some other source it will have to be added back to the iTunes library then you can sync it to the new phone. If the only place you have it is the old phone you will have to search google for a 3rd party software that can "pull" the music from the old phone and copy it to the computer then you can readd it to iTunes and sync to the new phone! Hope this helps

    Changing the password will be your best solution, once you change it the next time your ex-friend tries to make a purchase it will ask him for the new password and unless he knows your birthday and can answer your security questions he will not be able to change it back.
