    Hey guys, I had a quick question.

    So when I first jb'd to 4.2.1 I created a new account in Gamecenter, all was well.

    But I ended up restoring the phone, which yielded my current issue.

    Seems when I try login into Gamecenter with the SAME account, instead of bringing me up to my old nickname that I had picked. It brings me up to the "New Account" screen. I ended up thinking maybe I had to, I don't know, re-sync or something. So I went ahead and did it, but of course, i got "nickname taken" not to mention even after changing the nickname, it says that my e-mail has been taken. What the hell?

    Has anyone encountered this issue and fixed it? I've seen this happen to quite a few people from what I've read in the Apple forums, but not sure if there is a fix for this or if I should just wait.

    Thanks in advance!

    Apple will fix the issue over the phone maybe possible at the store

    I believe that the password you use has to be the same as your iTunes password so it might work to reset/change your iTunes password then try game center again

    Thanks Bender, since Game Center is pretty fresh I don't find it surprising that it has issues, but I'd hate to get ahead in some game, then have to restart all over because I can't login to my account. For the time being I made a new account, hopefully we won't have to update to fix this. :P

    But I'll be sure to give that a shot.

    If Bender's idea didn't work you could try going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. I had problems with Gamcenter and Facetime where just they just wouldn't work right. Who knows it may fix your problem.

    Hope I could help.

    Well both ideas didn't work out, but you know whats bizarre? That on my 2nd account (the new one I had made) I was able to restore my phone, go back to Gamecenter and login normally. While with my old account, it keeps bugging me to make a "New" account before I can use Gamecenter.

    Whatever it is, seems to be an issue with my first account. But no biggie, I'll just start using this one. At least it seems this one IS working.

    Thanks again guys!

    Your iTunes password should be the same password as iTunes and maybe same for iTunes account
