I called Apple Support to get this done for both of my sons' accounts and the rep told me that there is no way to do this. He stated that I would need to create new accounts for them and be OK with them losing all of their stuff associated with the existing IDs.

I suppose you restored your iPhone 6 from a backup of your older phone. If I understand the issue well enough, the phone keeps asking you for your friend password because you have an app that is his. If this app is on your computer in iTunes, there is a solution. In the iTunes' list view of your Apps, right-click on an app, "Get info" (or just press cmd ...

I had the same issue, I added my kids to Family Sharing but they showed up as adults (and so could make purchases without my permission). Fortunately you can easily change it. If you go to https://appleid.apple.com and login using their account details, in the Password and Security section, you can change the year of their birth. 1/1/2001 works fine, I ...

Call Apple When all the 'normal' (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5787) verifications do not work, how can the iCloud be certain it is you? You can call/contact Apple (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699). They will try to validate your account by multiple other ways. (billing information, creditcard info, etc). And one of the things they will probably ask ...

One way to do this is by opening Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/) and entering the following command: grep -rl username@example.com ~/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Music …where username@example.com is the email of the account you purchased the iTunes content with.

I can't think of any way of identifying purchases at the local system level. The only manner of which I'm aware is to log into an iTunes account at the Store and examine the purchases made from within the account. At that point, it's a matter of divide and conquer.

First, try to reset your Apple ID through https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid. And chose the security questions instead of Email authentication.

There is no easy way to disable / delete the Apple ID from Apple's servers, but you can delete all the content and then change the contact information and security questions / password to ones that you will no longer use or ever enter into a device.

With the release of iOS8, use the new Family Sharing feature. It allows you to share purchases (apps, books, music, movies, TV shows), calendar information, photos, location and some other information with up to 5 family members.

I'm assuming when you say "both Apple IDs", that you mean an Apple ID using your Gmail account, and an Apple ID using your Hotmail account. It asked you for passwords to both of those Apple IDs because you have purchases or free items licensed under both IDs.
