    In order to change the Apple ID, you need to enter the old or previous ID.
    You can manage your Apple ID here:

    Welcome to iMore

    Not sure I follow you. Did you accidentally put in someone else's Apple ID? If you try to reset again, can you put in your own Apple ID? If not, you might have to set an appointment with someone in The Genius Bar at your local Apple store. You'll need to take proof of purchase with you along with some type of photo ID so that you can show them the phone is yours.
