My iPhone 5c was signed up with an old Apple account by mistake.

When I first got my iPhone, I accidentally gave he Verizon rep the wrong Apple ID.  Now I can't get my Messages that are sent to my iPad to go to my iPhone.  I want to change the phone settings so my iPad, iPhone and iMac will all sync together.

From reading other sites, I understand I might have to lose everything on my phone.  That's fine, I can start fresh, but don't know how to go about it.

Would appreciate any help.

Open settings, icloud, account/email, sign out of Apple ID.  Sign in with correct Apple ID.

you will need to turn off find my iPhone long enough to change Apple id, then put it back on.

We definitely want you all the way connected to all your data/ messages, Gmapeg4! You're correct in that you'll have to do a Hard Reset/ Restore on your iPhone. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to do so: http://vz.to/12b8dpQ
