    My old email address I used for apple ID has been discontinued, I Changed my primary email and Apple ID to new email address on appleid.com on my windows 7 laptop. I assumed that it would automatically change the apple id on my iphone5. I discovered during normal use that I had to type in the new apple id when using app store or itunes now when I look at iCloud on my iphone, the Account login default is the old (now invalid) apple id. I cannot type in the new apple id. There is no apparent way to log out of that apple id on the Settings > iCloud page.

    The only way to get out of the old apple id in icloud appears to be "Delete Account". but it won't let me delete due to "find my phone" this has to be turned off but again this defaults to the old apple id??

    can someone please help

    Even if the email address was discontinued, you should hopefully still know he password of the Apple ID not the email account. You can use that to turn it off and delete the account.
