Congratulations on getting your damaged device replaced. We would love to help in any way we can. Can you please elaborate further on the Apple ID change you want to make?
wbez, it's great to hear you replaced this device, and we want to do all we can to make sure it's set up the way you need it.
Do you have an alternate, existing ID you'd like to start using instead, or would you like to create a brand new Apple ID to use going forward?
